I like to write and I like Doctor Who, so here I am. Not much else to say, really. The weird things inside my head are by far the most interesting thing about me.

Also, since it\'s customary to say this somewhere: I acknowledge that all of the BBC\'s characters belong to the BBC, and I earn no money from any of this.
