Actually, Given the BBC's Budget, I Suspect They Could Have Made a Doctor Who Episode for Less.

Whoo-hoo! My reading of the Eighth Doctor books can soon recommence! I was at last able to find a copy of Time Zero on for... well, for more than any sane person would pay for a paperback, but considerably less than the astronomical figures I've seen it selling for in the US lately. Note to my next of kin: if one day you should, as seems increasingly likely, find me lying dead on the floor, having been cruelly slain by an overdose of juniper pollen, you may wish to sell this volume to help defray funeral expenses. If it keeps going up in price the way it has been, in a couple of years I believe it will be worth an amount approximately equal to the GNP of Luxembourg.

I'll tell ya, it's probably too much to ask for, but it would be really nice if this turned out to be the best damned Doctor Who novel ever written.


  1. Hey, I`m taking life insurance out on you. Am I next of kin? Has Kathy mentioned our trip to Oregon?

  2. I think you're on the list somewhere. :) And yes, she has. Very cool!
