Hurrah! I never bothered to change the bookmark to WWdN, as it amused me as the years went by to see how long you were in Exile. Mr Wheaton; take us home.

Meh, ignore the double post, sorry. Meant to log in via Twitter (nicer picture), tried to delete first post but can't. :-(

Does that apply to non-US copyright as well? :-) In any case, you could always tweet @steven_moffat and check he's cool with it...

Wil, I'm hoping you've already seen the classic Tom Baker story 'Pyramids of Mars' because it's one of the best Doctor Who stories of the 1970s. You bear an almost uncanny resemblance in this photo to Ibrahim Namin, the character in the fez who plays a major part in episode one!

I think "then-girlfriend" is the preferred term. "Ex" kind of implies "broke up". :-)

I can only speak for myself, but being in the UK, the time difference means that by the time I find out you have a new blog, the moment has usually passed for pithy comments - I tend to assume that after a day or so you don't have the time to look back at your old content to look at the last stragglers of comments. Unless there's a Doctor Who reference in your blog, in which case of course time is relative. :-) Bottom line; I'm sure there's s significant subset of your Twitter followers who read your blogs (and plenty like me who started reading your blog way back before Twitter came along). Twitter is great for short info dumps, but the blogs win for depth of content.

Would love it to be Doctor Who (since they're filming some episodes in the US for next year's season). Failing that, Torchwood wouldn't be bad. :-)

Wil, your blog reminded me instantly of a sketch from one of Harry Enfield's various comedy sketch shows over here in the UK, wherein he parodied the sort of 'edited for TV' nonsense you describe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgt100Ep0Y4

I always remember the pain and hurt of losing our first cat, Balti, some 8 years ago. So while I'm a cat person rather than a dog person, and living thousands of miles away from the PHS, stories like this always get to me and thus I've given $5. Good luck with the fundraising!

In my head, Neil Gaiman had a word with Steven Moffat et al when planning the shooting of his Doctor Who script later this year, and that you're going to be cast in it. Failing that, seeing you in any Doctor Who episode would be awesome. :-D

I misted up somewhat while reading this at work, no doubt confusing my colleagues nearby. :-)

Careful now, you might create a paradox strong enough to rip a hole in the space-time continuum, about the size of... Belgium. :-)

You can always do what I did; buy the CD of Original Series sound effects - albeit I bought it when it was released however many years ago, so it's probably long since deleted. Sad, but true: I coveted a flip-top phone for years so I could have a phone that was opened like the Original Series communicators. I finally got one a few years ago, and now it plays the 'chirrup' whenever I flip it open and the boatswain's whistle whenever it gets a text message. Geek nirvana. :-)

Hehe, there was always something Time Lord-ish about the Traveller (as someone else said, even just the name alone), and I'm sure I read in a review years ago someone saying "and Wesley went off to be a Time Lord". As an aside, with Wil getting guest star roles on various shows these days, I'd love to see him as a guest star on Doctor Who; there haven't been many Trek/Who actor crossovers in the past, but this would top all of them. Someone pass that idea on to Steven Moffat... :-)
