  • Struggle

    I’m struck by a dichotomy of purpose in the mornings… and I really have to get it sorted. On the one hand, I like to get up in the morning, have breakfast, drink some coffee, check messages – that sort of thing. Well, I actually don’t like the getting up part much, especially as my…

  • Feed Me

    Now that I have taken the leap into the 21st Century, I have the chance to flood my page with content from other sites as well as my own. So, not only do you have the chance to read my drivel here, you can read it from my other blogs – like Renegade Time Lord…

  • New Look… Hang On…

    I have taken more than four-and-a-half years to make this decision, but in the end I had to… I have a few blogs to juggle here and the old format made it difficult to handle. Now I can see what I’m not posting all over the place – and keep this journal up to date…

  • Early Warning System

    I am really gagging for more news about the second series of Torchwood, especially because I tend to be the last one to know. I just don’t watch enough TV to catch the adverts or read enough newspapers to see the preview articles. If I got any less media savvy, I’d best move into a…

  • Never Never Maybe

    I’ve been listening to ‘Neverland‘ on the way to work – another excellent 8th Doctor adventure from Big Finish. The Doctor and Charley have to face up to the reality of their situation – Charley should have died when the R-101 airship crashed in the 1930s. The Time Lords intend to make the Doctor answer…

  • Linear Plots and Onionskins

    A warning… I fear that in this post I sound like I’m just thinking outloud. As a result, it may come across like senseless babble! I have been mulling over the essential elements of a Doctor Who plot while reading through an old FASA role playing scenario, ‘The Iytean Menace‘. As common in the game,…

  • Howzat?!

    When, as a Doctor Who fan, you read articles like this, you can only sit and weep a silent tear of joy, knowing that you have got a step closer to some unrecorded list of ‘Perfect Moments to See Before You Next Regenerate’. Worth it for the desktop wallpaper alone!

  • Hitch Hiker’s Guide to Torchwood

    My entry on Torchwood – expanded significantly from a half-complete piece found in the site’s Flea Market – appeared on the front page of h2g2 two days ago having become an edited part of the Guide. For those who haven’t visited, h2g2 offers a user-generated encyclopedia akin to the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…

  • SJA: Continuity Links

    Marvelous to see the devious minds at work behind the scenes of The Sarah Jane Adventures, when making side references to Doctor Who mythology in yesterday’s episode. When Sarah Jane spoke to Bea (played by Phyllida Law), they discussed how Sontarans looked like potatoes – which neatly ties into this story about a forthcoming fourth…
