Relatively new Who fan. I've come to the conclusion that Nine is my Doctor, though I do have a fondness for Eleven (even if he does remind me of my oldest nephew) and Five (thanks to watching The Five Doctors). However, my most favorite character in the Whoniverse is Jack Harkness. I'm still working my way through the shows, so please be gentle if I make a continuity error. I realized while watching Poltergeist: The Legacy that I'm a producer's worst nightmare, as I never do what I'm supposed to. That hasn't changed at all in fifteen years. I also post under the name LadyDeb1970 on fanfiction.net, for a variety of fandoms. . .right now, my greatest projects are the Champions series in Lord of the Rings and two fics for Star Wars.
