Wuthering Daleks (and Regency Ducks)

Wuthering Daleks

Back to the 19th century with this instalment of the Dalek Game (but not to worry, I have more Gaiman, Adams and waiting others in the wings).

I am sure I first read Wuthering Heights when I was about 7, but I may have been a bit older. Not by much though – I was young enough to find it more accessible than Brave New World and actually get to the end, but frankly, it was no Jane Eyre. I read it again for school in year 12, when everyone was silly enough to think it romantic, and again at uni, when I loathed it. It did, however, give us Kate Bush (alone justification for the book) and a very awkwardly funny scene with some dead rabbits.

In other news: You may have seen the Flash Gordon duck drawing. I am not doing a series of those (yet) but it led to some friends and I sitting in a pew waiting for a wedding to begin and making duck jokes, so when one of those friends had a birthday, this was the obvious choice (pen, brush and coloured inks):

  1. I hear a sad wailing of ‘Cathy!’ in a Dalek voice … rather than ‘exterminate’. I am afraid I do love ‘Wuthering Heights’. It may have something to do with Sir Lauence Olivier playing Heathcliff in the iconic movie (what a hunk), and being brainwashed from birth by my mother who LOVED that movie (I have a brother called Heath, and we used to say he was lucky not to be Laurence). I love it to the point I have a daughter called Emily, who was a whisker off being called Bronte; but I came to my senses in time. I guess Emily Bronte was the very first woman writer that I admired.

    So I LOVE this illustration. But still not as much as little Dalek on the prairie – which is still the Holly Hobby Dalek to me.

      I don’t know if I’ve seen that version of the movie, but I think Laurence Olivier is my favourite Darcy so far – he played the spoiled boy aspect of his character beautifully.
