A quick note to say that Kathleen Edgecomb, an Arts writer at my local paper, blogged yesterday about a "Doctor Who" scarf pattern she had found on the Internet.
She didn't know much about the Doctor and called him "a famous television detective in England." I s'pose that's not necessarily wrong, but it's surely the most understated description of the year!
She also doesn't seem to realize that there are 10 versions of him, only one of whom wore the 12-foot scarf! But "who" knows? Maybe she'll tune in next week to the Sci-Fi Channel looking for the scarf, get hooked on the character, and go searching for 4th doctor stories. People become fans in all kinds of crazy ways.
Anyhoo, I responded with a few comments of my own ...
