Well, where do I begin?

I guess I'll begin by saying that I saw the new series on TV and got into the old series via the DVDs. I found out about this site via fanfiction.net and I've finally got round to signing up here.

I am something of an Adric fan (not that that's a crime) so a lot of my works involve him in some way. If he doesn't appear directly, he is likely to be mentioned - unless the fic concerned is set before the events of "Full Circle". And, to be perfectly honest, I don't think he was quite as bad as people make out.

As for which eras I write about, my fondness for a certain Alzarian means most of my work is for the Fourth or Fifth Doctor categories. However, I am prepared to branch out into other areas.
