Unrelated parenthesis

Nothing to do with Doctor Who, but something I observed this morning while following a discussion about the merits of Roald Dahl

Carrie (Stephen King, 1974) 

  • Quiet, intelligent, bookish child protagonist (female)
  • Abusive parental relationship
  • Taken under wing by sympathetic female teacher
  • Develops telekinesis
  • Uses new-found ability to exact revenge on her abusers
  • Subsequently filmed, and then adapted into a stage musical by the RSC

 

Matilda (Roald Dahl, 1988) 

  • Quiet, intelligent, bookish child protagonist (female)
  • Abusive parental relationship
  • Taken under wing by sympathetic female teacher
  • Develops telekinesis
  • Uses new-found ability to exact revenge on her abusers
  • Subsequently filmed, and then adapted into a stage musical by the RSC

 Um….
