Oh yeah, fun fact for the Gallifrey fandom, while on the train last night on the way home from the convention, another person joined our group, and introduced himself after… Charlie Ross, aka Commander Janartis!
He’s very proud to be the first (only?) character directly murdered by K-9 without the aid of random explosions, and he was happy when I mentioned how there’s a dedicated Gallifrey fandom on Tumblr. :P
He also told us a great anecdote about how Lalla Ward told them about a message she got from Richard Dawkins (back when Tom read out text messages to phones on BT) saying “I love you, darling, I miss you so much” - or something along those lines - and so she got it in Tom’s voice.
But yeah, what a random coincidence!
Eight has amnesia - again.
This is what Seasons Of Fear should have been. For two hours. With the techno music. And Soldeed randomly turning up in the background saying “You fools”.
