Dr. Kirtland C. Peterson — “Cat” to his friends and colleagues — feeds his left brain with science, his right brain with the rich feast of fiction, including SF and fantasy.

Among his life’s highlights are sitting in the pilot’s seat of a shuttle prepping for launch at the Kennedy Space Center, and accepting Brannon Braga’s invitation to pitch Star Trek scripts at Paramount in LA.

Currently C.J. Sansom’s Revelation and re-reading Philip Pullman’s The Subtle Knife.

I think the Daleks have been a bit overworked, however their name is spelled, but yes, great news, particularly with Steven Moffat running things. Thanks for the links.

agreed. they've done the daleks to death in the eccleston/tennant eras. and the cybermen as well. i'll take anything else (except the ood).

Also, Neil Gaiman has confirmed that he's going to be writing an episode for Series 6! How awesome is THAT?! :)

I, too, can't wait to meet the Eleventh Doctor!

He's already written it, I believe -- they just didn't have the money to produce it properly in Series 5.

From what little footage has been released so far, Matt Smith will be incredible. The overall reaction to his casting seemed to be, well, he doesn't look very promising, but trust Moffat, and yeah, that seems to have been absolutely right.
