The real Turing

“The Imitation Game” is a good film, so long as you take it as Alan Turing fanfiction. Its resemblance to reality is not to be relied on. One of the many things that annoys me about the plot is the way it portrays Turing as a pathetic individual towards the end of his life, which doesn’t accord with his biographies. This article about the people who knew him at the time is fascinating, and includes the intriguing story of the fortune teller, which they bloody well should have put into the film, rather than making stuff up.

Rant over.

On a happier note have a sketch I did of my eldest daughter’s guinea pigs riding a motorbike. As guinea pigs are wont to do.
