I listened to the Secret of Cassandra which was a nice story. I did guess the ending though, which is pretty good for me - I never guess the endings, even if they're obvious! Also, I can't find one so I'm assuming that you haven't done a picture of Bernice, yeah?

Now I'm just really waiting for this series to get an ensemble cast...

Oh I remember that story (Gosh it seems so long ago since I listened to the first series of Benny audios...actually, it probably was a really long time ago I listened to them...probably ten years!)

I kinda liked that early series where there wasn't an ensemble cast and we just had the odd recurring character...it was kinda fun :)

I absolutely love all your Bond 50 stuff! I now have M, Silva, Q, Eve, Daniel Craig's Bond, Severine and assorted others on my faves! It's awesome :D

I'm really glad you like them so much - and thanks for all the new faves :) It's been a pleasure to do, and a joy that people like them :D

I decided to scare myself with some numbers.

There are about, what, 783 episodes of Doctor Who? At least 14 solid days of watching if you strung them together continuously.

There's approximately (vaguely around) 422 radio dramas by just Big Finish
There are at the absolute barest minimum 413 novels (as of probably in 2009 so we're leaving the Smith novels and some Tennant and god knows what other kinds of weird alternative novels that aren't really canon).

If each novel takes 5 hours to read, and each radio drama is one hour (averaged but probably not accurate)

All that totals to over 117 solid days worth of Doctor Who entertainment. We're excluding the Target novelisations, anniversary specials, things like Scream of the Shalka, live performances, and the movies. Oh and the comics (probably thousands of those). This also excludes relevant documentaries, special features on DVDs, and informative novels about the show.

I'm pretty sure all this could add up to a solid year worth of entertainment. And a sum of money that would only ever be spent if one was a millionaire or won a lottery. I'm scared.

Your numbers are...curious. I'm not sure where you get the 422 Big Finish audio stories from (by my reckoning it's 370, but maybe you're including the Bernice Summerfield audios), and around 330 original novels (again not counting Bernice Summerfield or Faction Paradox, though even with those you're not going to get close to 413 - and I counted up to the current Matt Smith novels).

The standard monthly series of audios are actually more like two hours long, so you've got a bit more time than that :)

But..yes...a solid year at least.

And I own every novel, every DVD and every audio story but I've never come close to being a millionaire and have never won the lotto, so it's achievable :D

In other news, today I bought a plush Dalek and a plush TARDIS. They are awesome.

Message ends.

Well I did include the Bernice Summerfield, and the Doctor Who Magazine ones, plus the upcoming Tom Baker ones (even though they're not here yet- they're pretty much around the corner). I did include Bernice in the books as well, and also I think the Faction Paradox.

You're kidding? You own ALL the novels, DVDs, and audios? Oh my god, I didn't think it was physically possible! Then I would definitely buy everything in physical copy if I were you (but I'm not and have no such collection). If you ever no longer want or need them, can you have them shipped to me? :P

So wait...you've heard/read/seen them all? Oh my god. Is it possible for one person to know that much about the Whoniverse? I'm so envious. Last night I spent a good deal of time imagining myself owning them all. How long and how much was it all?

Ah, makes more sense if you include all the spin-off material :)

Yup, own them all. They are compacted into two bookshelves in my house, which are getting more and more in need of bigger space. Hence I start building my police box bookshelf in a couple of weeks time which should be about twice the size of the books shelves, and hold my entire Doctor Who collection :) (As long as I can actually build it without it looking like shit :P)

So I'm in the process of reading Torchwood: Long Time Dead, then I have four more Doctor Who novels to read, another Torchwood, a couple of Benny Summerfields, and a stack of audios to get through, but aside from that, yes I've heard/read/seen them all (oh crap, Torchwood: Miracle Day DVD literally just arrived...guess I have to add that to the list as well :P). How long has it taken to get this far? My first Doctor Who novel was "Mawdryn Undead" and I got it in 1985. So 25 years to get this far, and I've estimated my collections worth as about $40,000 :)

Oh my god...25 years?! Holy crap. And a year's worth of good college tuition. I don't think I have the perseverance for that. I want to own them all for the sake of owning them all. But I have a feeling that half of the things in there will only be mildly interesting, with the occasional gem (of course).

Speaking of gems- I listened to the first part of Omega. You're right, this is 5 star material. It's funny and interesting.

So I bet the TARDIS builder website can help you out with the building process, and you can adjust the design plans to fit your cabinet needs. :) So any photos of your monstrous collection? Will you store them in the round panels of the secret classic interior you're probably building in your garage?

Oh speakinggggg of classic interiors. Did the original TARDIS have a huge hexagonal lamp on the ceiling? Are there any good full pictures of that? Because I think I saw it in a shot of an episode..

At this point you truly are an obsessed grade A no-doubt-about-it ming-mong uber-fan. Any other words I missed? Don't deny it. :P

Oh, all of them are interesting to be honest. I judge everything by Doctor Who standards, so when I say it's bad, I mean it's bad compared to other Doctor Who stuff. Compared to everything else it's still got something to recommend it. But there are a tonne of gems - definitely not the occasional gem. And yes, Omega is great :)

I have not got photos of my collection, but I'm thinking I should take some. I might take them as I transfer everything into the police box bookshelf :) I've actually considered (if I could get the investment money) starting a nightclub called "The Blue Box" and having two floors - one designed loosely around the white, roundelled console room, the other based loosely around the McGann console room. I reckon it'd be pretty cool, actually :)

Yes, the original interior had the huge hexagonal lamp on the ceiling...uhm....how about this: [link] ?

Nah...I'm nowhere near as bad as some people :P
