"He felt like he'd died and gone to a lonely sci-fi fan's version of heaven."
Oh, I know that feeling so well!
I got a ridiculous amount of enjoyment out of that. It's so the way I used to watch my tapes of DW at 1am with the volume one notch away from mute. The world is cruel to sf fans.
And the Invisible Man! Well that's a great show too, though not quite in DW territory.
Anyway, this had me in stiches, especially Hobbe's "you've never heard of the Doctor" at the end.
