Favourite Film Of 2009
STAR TREK

And I'm not even a Trek fan, really, jut thought it was a great movie

Honorable mention:
Moon

Worst Film of 2009
LESBIAN VAMPIRE KILLERS

Possibly worst film of the decade

Honorable mention:
Blood The Last Vampire

Most Overrated Film of 2009
DISTRICT 9

I spent the first 20 minutes thinking, "This is the greatest SF film ever!" I spent the last 20 minutes thinking, "Please, please, please stop!" It went from being a smart, intelligent, witty film that seemed to be a subtle satire on apartheid to a dumb, hollow, Aliens rip-off.

Favourite UK TV Show of 2009
BEING HUMAN

Honorable mentions:
Misfits (so nearly a winner, but not quite), Torchwood (which I was loving so, so much until the quick-fix technobabble solution)

Favourite US Show of 2009
TRUE BLOOD

Honorable mentions:
Chuck, Fringe (definitely my "most improved" show of the year)

Worst TV Show of 2009
DEMONS

Honorable mentions:
Eastwick, Ghost Whisperer

Favourite Novel of 2009
TRANSITION (Iain M Banks)

I don't actually htink it's anywhere near his best, but in a year when everything else I've read has been dispiritingly average, it was still my favourite read

Personal Highlight of 2009:
My Merlin set visit to Pierrefonds in France. You really do believe you could be in Camelot when you're there. And even better when its populated by the likes of Katie McGrath, Angel Coulby and Emelia Fox (looking dead sexy in armour!).
