I always do things late. Here, I go back to my way old attempt to do decent backgrounds. I wonder if I'll manage to get better in the time left. Let's hope.

For all you Doctor Who fans out there (and I know I'm not the only one), I highly recommend a new comic I've found called The Whovian Observer. Probably more accessible if you were a fan BCE (before Chris Eccleston, doncha know), but there's plenty of new stuff in there as well. And his manga portraits are excellent. Overall review? FAN-TAS-TIC.

And for those of you who don't know, Stephen Fry will be writing an episode in the new season. I think it's going to be the tenth or eleventh one. Should be interesting to see him writing for this, having read his books (which I know Shannon's also done).

I will leave any interesting historical stuff to The Cowriter with the Most Books. Tra.

Time for a news quiz! by Shannon

I trust that you've all been keeping up with the latest news on the Conservative Party's leadership elections.

*crickets chirp*

Er...it's also the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

*crickets get louder*

All right, okay...the dead former Conservative MP and oenophile (and full-time skirt chaser) Alan Clark's prized wine collection fetched 56,000 (US$99,050) at auction the other day?

*crickets get bored and go to sleep*

Honestly. Some people simply don't know what's news-worthy nowadays.

(On a comic-related note, we're not going to tell you who Jane saw. But he was in one of Liz's books, and if she ever finds out that Jane saw him and didn't get an autograph...much, much flailing.)
