David Tennant, Doctor Who, Matt Smith

DVD box set recommendations?

Can anyone recommend me a DVD box set? I had an enormous stack of them which I've now worked my way through, so I'm looking for something new to watch.  I'm from the UK and I like sci-fi/fantasy (Doctor Who, Game of Thrones) and if it has vampires so much the better (True Blood).  I also quite enjoy mysteries (Sherlock).  Any recommedations would be gratefully received!

Not really sure what happened here....

So, TQC, I haven't posted in LJ for a long time, but this is such a wtf kind of situation, and if I talk about it in my real life, people will get involved and drama will start and I'm really not interested in that. But I honestly have no clue what I can do, and thought that since I had always seen such stellar advice given here in the past I could perhaps find guidance.

Out of all the books you read in 2014, what ere your three favorites?

Mine were probably Laura by Vera Caspary, Bird Box by Josh Malarian, and The Fishing Fleet: Husband-Hunting in the Raj by Anne de Courcy. There were a couple others I really liked as well.

Do you have any reading goals for 2015? Mine is to finish 40 books. It was 52 last year, but I only read 37, so I think 40 is a more attainable goal.

What did you eat for dinner on New Year's Eve? I made roasted duck breast with herbs and mushrooms, roasted brussels sprouts with herbs and mushrooms, roasted mashed cauliflower with roasted garlic and ginger, and homemade ice cream with heath bar bits. I have to say, i was quite proud of myself!

I was involved in a personal safety incident with a friend today. Without going into too many details, we've discussed the possibility of carrying pepper spray in our pocket/on our person. (we're both women, if that matters)
