Dig how the Japanese and US markets differ with the cover choice… the American version seems embarrassed that it may have comics inside, the Japanese positively revels in it.

Heard a lovely story about comedy writer Nev Fountain. He’s a bit of a Doctor Who geek, hence the constant references and impressions in the Dead Ringers TV and Radio series (“Mmm, New Labour, that’s weird” – David Tennant/Tony Blair). Well, like all A-list geeks, his partner is an Doctor Who assistant, in this case Nicola Bryant (Peri – while Richard Dawkins has Lalla Ward (Romana))).

Anyway, at a recent wedding with a high-geek attendance (including new Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat), Nev Fountain gave the best man’s speech, with a warning. He pointed out that the audience had better not find him too funny, especially not Moffat. As the last time a Doctor Who producer enjoyed a best man’s speech too much, he cast the best man as The Doctor at the next opportunity.

And many fans have never forgiven John Nathan Turner for Colin Baker…
