    OK Dave, you've got me. I could only find quotes and a birth and death year. I am not even sure those are correct. Then I began to think that perhaps this name is a pseudonym for someone else. So I searched that angle to no avail as well.

    Who was he? Was he real? Whoever he is/was, I liked the quote. But I will be changing it soon anyway.

    Continuing a discussion that started in another thread, I did not have to look up the name of the villian from Caves of Androzani. I have a very good memory of Dr Who. I have them all on tape or DVD and have watched them numerous times.

    All episodes (or close, there were over 150 titles comprising of over 750 episodes) are available on video or DVD in the States. There are new shows that were just aired on BBC1, and not shown in the States yet, although CBC is showing them in Canada. Can someone from Canada tape them for me? Is it a violation of copyright laws to ask someone to tape something for you?

    She was good at that. Better, since she couldn't act.

    It used to be on PBS, channel 11 in Chicago. We used to have 3 or 4 friends gather each Sunday night in my backyard. We brought out a TV and watched it while eating and drinking outside. Those were fun times.


    Selective memory. I do the same thing. But usually I forget what my wife tells me. :lol:

    wasnt her first scene in a red bikini? :thumbsup:

    im definalty going to have to try to track down some of thost DVDs. i never saw any william hartnell or patrick troughton, other than the time they showed up in 3 doctors, 5 doctors, and 2 doctors. i think i picked up in the middle of jon pertwees run, and was hooked until the middle of colin baker. i think one of the first jon pertwees i saw, was one where all the manaquins were comming alive and unfolding their hands to reaveal little guns or somthing. lol

    It is not copyright infringement to tape the show. If it is a copyright infringement to then give AWAY that copy that is taped, depends a bit on the country, in some countries it would be copyright infringement, in some not.

    No problem. Since I can't edit posts after more than 1 hour, I can't remove the last part.

    I didn't see it this time. I have seen it in the past. It is incredible how many, and how quickly, they can eat those things. It is kind of gross, if you think about it. I can't eat more than 2 of those things.
