  1. I miss read the posts on the site as “more fun than a CV full of Badgers”.

  2. Nathan B says:

    If I weren’t such a tough guy I’d be wiping tears from my eyes – some excellent sad moments there guys. (sob)
    I agree with all your choices, though Sarah Jane leaving at the end of the Hand of Fear always brings a lump to my throat.
    I can’t afford to go to conventions which is a pity cos I’d love to meet you lot – have a fantastic time!
    I watched Being Human and I think I’ll stick with it – though I’m now glad they didn’t cast Russell Tovey as the Doc – I don’t think he would have been right for the part.
    Another sooper dooper podcast – more please!

  3. Sorry ive not sent in that promiced 30 second recomendation… my voice keeps coming and going to such an extent that I am not doing a show this week.

    Sad moment in Classic WHO for me is from Tomb when the Doctor is talking about his family. BUT After your recomendation I have bumped the MASACCRE up my list of Classics I had not “seen” to my next story…. Still listening to ep one at the moment…

    ah the things I do for WHOstrology…. Anyway.

    you have NO idea how jelious I am that you are going to WILF CON. (and its got BRIARS too) Whats the odds that THE Cribbins gets a standing ovation before he even says a word.

    The real question is what to get signed? Invasion Movie or New Season Box set…. theres only one way to find out….

    Ask him what ever happend to his TV Fishing show. I dont fish but would watch it anyway. It is THE Cribbins after all.

    After seeing Being Human, I suspect that Tovey may be Doctor 12.
