Baby We’ve Hit The Big Time!

sfx128.jpgThe last time I remember Doctor Who being on the cover of SFX was back in…think about this people…1998. It was the 35th anniversary: the videos had just colonized mars with the release of The Ice Warriors and the height of Doctor Who style was The Infinity Doctors....

Seven Years. Even when the Doctor was named the #1 SF character in an SFX poll a year or two back, Buffy got the cover. Seven years. Every issue of SFX I’d look at it and say, “when are you going to stop pandering to these flash in the pans and show some props to a real genre show?” Actually I probably didn’t say anything as a) I try to keep utterances in front of SFX to a minimum and b) I’m crap at ebonics. But the sentiment is still pretty much there.

Well, our time has come. We have arrived. We’re now the hip thing in town and SFX is paying us some attention. About time, I say, about time…


So when do we get on the cover of Rolling Stone?

True True True.  HOWEVER!  smile 
The day I feel we’ve hit the big time is the day I buy a carton of milk, and bag of cookies at the supermarket, and while I’m waiting for the 97 year old granny to produce all her coupons at the check out, I look over and see Doctor Who on the cover of TV GUIDE.  smile
