    Doctor Who news

    To Doc’s point, if you look at the body of episodes for new Who (Wikipedia is outstanding in this regard), Moffat is responsible for several of the great episodes in RTD’s tenure (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances (high water mark for Eccleston IMO); The Girl in the Fireplace; Silence in the...

    My Guess... 3017

    My cake of SCS Fairway is progressing to the end. As much as I love SCS soaps, I always have to use more soap than I expect to get the lather I want. I never get a billowy lather, just a really effective slick coating that gives me a super close shave and great postshave feel.

    McCarthy. Man, that guy is good. I have not gone dark with him yet, but absolutely loved his Border Trilogy.

    Trumper Violet cream always delivers a purple lather. Adds to its charm!
