About me, generally[edit | edit source]
Profile photo is not of me (I can but dream). It's a Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto merge-morph I did.
Me and Doctor Who[edit | edit source]
The first I learned about Doctor Who was when I stumbled across an episode of The Hand of Fear. I had no idea what the heck was happening. Who is this Fourth Doctor? Who is Eldrad? Who is Sarah Jane? Why is she leaving? I was thoroughly confused, yet hooked.
Who folks I’ve met at conventions:
- John Nathan-Turner
- Peter Davison
- Colin Baker
- Nicholas Courtney
- Anthony Ainley
- Elisabeth Sladen – kissed her hand, I did
Some of my other serious fictional interests are H. P. Lovecraft, Sherlock Holmes and Shakespeare. Which is why some of my favorite Who novels are All-Consuming Fire and The Empire of Glass (thank you, Andy Lane).
I’ve read and own almost all the Virgin New Adventures, Virgin Missing Adventures, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures, and BBC Past Doctor Adventures, and most of the reference books. Because they were the only Who you could get during the interregnum. I hope to contribute a bunch on those fronts, as they’re not as accessible as the TV show.
