The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive

Well, this documentary, broadcast in two parts on September 19th and 26th, was excellent. I've recognised behaviours from my grandfather, from my father, from two of my brothers... and from me as well.

Yesterday I was talking to watervole about the recent series of Doctor Who, wherein Sarah Jane Smith says "yes, some things are worth getting your heart broken for", and Reinette says "one may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel. [...] The Doctor is worth the monsters".

And today Stephen Fry -- who has been positing a button which, when pressed, would remove all the symptoms of manic depression -- says "no, I wouldn't press the button."

Neither would I.
