Favorite Quotes

"I'm a fan of Doctor Who

His female companions I love them all
they're stuck all over my bedroom wall
My favourite ones are Ace and Sarah Jane

And when I go to shop at the ABC
I don't just stop at the DVDs
I also buy books from the Doctor Who novel range

I'm always sure to ask the question,
out of all the Doctors, whose the best one?
whenever I meet up with a fellow fan

Was it William Hartnell, Peter Cushing, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant,  Richard E Grant whoonlyplayedtheroleinthe

Oh, I couldn't fit it in the song but my favourite script editor is Robert Holmes"

"Under Torch Wood"
By Verity Stob

A parody for voices
"To begin at the beginning. It is a wet, windy, winsome winter evening over the Cardiff bay development; the headachy halogen and sour sodium lights tickling the glinty, greasy, newly-repointed-and-polished-up-nicely cobblestones and reflected and redoubled in shimmershivering puddles.

It is late; and the many and variously architected towers, domes, angles, spikes, aspects, canopies, canapés and protuberances crouch unadmired in driving drizzle and the garish orange fog of electric allnite-everynite twilight.

Only you can see the mercilessly, migrainishly floodlit Norwegian Church, still cute as a baby mushroom, still astonished and agog, as though it has fallen here out of Disney.

Only you can see the baseball-capped Sennedd building, home of the Welsh Assembly, staring blindly out into the botulism-bobbing bay, dreaming dreams of passing baffling bilingual byelaws with which to befuddle the enemy.

Only you can see the beetled carapace of the Millennium Centre, its cryptic inscription illuminated in huge hostile letters, simultaneously making no sense in two languages:


Only you can see these things. Well, only you, half-a-dozen webcams and 318 CCTV security systems."
