Funny story: I promised myself this go ‘round that I was under no circumstances going to analyze the Holby City: Winter Trailer. At all. I was going to be very mature and watch the Trailer one time like all the normal people in the GA general audience who have watched it the way it was meant to be viewed. Once. And that was going to to be that.
Apparently the actual, literal translation of I’m not going to analyze the Holby City Winter Trailer this time around is: Imma gonna watch that sucker 75 times, backwards and forwards, in slow motion, frame by frame, screenshot Serena’s scenes, catalogue and label blouses, earrings, hair-line and makeup, cross reference with spoilers and official synopses and a preview video to come up with some ideas. Forget one theory. I’ve got six. I could blame @nicolaruth27 because she tagged me this morning and asked for some CSI level investigation, but that would be unfair as we all know I would have done this anyway. In any case I’m shoving it all under a read-more, mostly to save my six, I can’t believe you’re hanging in you precious people followers who don’t watch Holby City and obsess over Serena and Bernie and anyone else in the tag who simply like to watch the pretty gifs and have no use for the rambling prognostications of the obsessed theories.
I’m surprised she hasn’t turned up here. People regard her as some “miracle” who “overcame her deaf-blindness”, but she was so much more than that.
She was a socialist, feminist, pro-choice activist and arguably one of the earliest disability activists. She also introduced the akita dog to America. Those are things you don’t hear about this truly remarkable woman. That’s why she is my history crush.
