    Excellent! Both your work ~ and him! lol (Now, there was a massive disappointment in the end. Torchwood.) Great start! Too bad they ran it in the ground. Could have, should have, been an all-time Classic! He certainly is. (His parents live not far from me! He did a show about his life (more like, examining what made him gay). Well as you know he has an American accent. But the minute he walked into his parents’ house he slipped directly to his Scottish brogue. Thought it was kinda funny! Well, they live here but they’re both from Scotland. Speaking of which, I thought D. Tennant was faking the Scottish accent in the “wolfman” episode; but no. He had me fooled, it was the other way around. “Trivia for the Day.”

  • Yes he’s a lovely man. Glad to have seen him live in concert at least twice. I miss Torchwood and would even go so far to say I prefer it, largely because of the more adult themed story lines. I’m a massive worshiper of Chris Chibnall and Russell T Davies, and for me they will always be my writers on Who. I will be honest enough to admit I stopped watching full time when David and John departed.

    Cool portrait . . . a favorite character! We too miss Torchwood . . . though we preferred the earlier episodes before they killed off so many of the cast members . . .

    Yeah! What was that about?! I finally got on line JUST in time to close the challenge. Usually when they’re down for any length of time they’re making changes to the site. And usually (always) for the worst! I haven’t spotted any yet so maybe we ’re in luck this time!

    By the way, don’t miss the Anniversary episode the 23rd. I saw a sneak peek today (from the BBC). It looks Deliciously Dark ~ you may enjoy it. Even though it’s Moffat’s. And although I didn’t see him, I believe David’s making an appearance! It’s a Can’t Miss. :-)

    No Jack, but we can’t have everything!

  • Ha! Don;t worry – UK remember – already seen new trailers and heaps of specials to go with it. And I can tell you Ten is wearing a Fez! (Don’t say a word) I am grinning and bearing it :D
