Dr Who News

The new Doctor’s companion has just been announced. – and she looks about 15.. Which fits in, I suppose, with a Doctor Who who looks no more than seventeen. Now I’m sure it’s not me that’s getting old and thinking that all the latest Doctor Whos look terribly young – don’t they look really young […]

Me Again….

…so I’ve been having a think over the last few days and resolved a few internal issues. So (touch wood) I won’t be posting many more self-pitying whinges in here. One of the things I decided on was that I can and should break out of set routines when I get bored with them. So, […]
