Finished "The Writer's Tale: The Final Chapter" this morning. ♥
And it was even better than the first edition. I just loved how he ended with talking about his very first episode "Rose" on the last pages.

Remember all that wrangling earlier this year over the two-Doctors-and-Rose-scene on Bad Wolf Bay, because it didn't feel anything like human experience? Well, I've received an e-mail from lovely Pete Bowker ...
In having one Doctor grieve for his lost love, while the other Doctor went off with that same lost love, you have written of that moment we all have when we make a choice. It is grieving for the love we never had (and the sex we never had) because of the choices we made.
It did work! I love that e-mail.

I interviewed David on Barry [Island], in his stripy pyjamas. [...] Oh, and he mooned the paparazzi out at sea. I'd forgotten that. There was a speedboat circling, so he just went, 'I'm going to show them my arse,' and pulled down his pyjama bottoms. One of the make-up girls was standing right behind him. He hadn't realized. 'It's okay,' she said, 'It's nothing I haven't seen before.'

Yeah, much as I like looking at myself, I think you can get out of that dress.
Is that an invitation?
Now that would be different. And brilliant. But later!
I'm a psychological minefield.
WHY THE HELL DID WE NEVER GET A PICTURE OF DAVID'S ARSE??? I AM DISAPPOINTED IN YOU PRESS!
But that last bit, with the Master, I get why it had to go but it was sooooo funny. :D
