Busted Tardis. I was only able to enter IO for destination and ended up circling Jupiter. Looks like I'm staying in TN until it's fixed. Anyway, how did the discussions go and how is the writing for new series being accepted in the heartland?

It was really fantastic. The group was mostly members of U.N.I.T., an Iowa-based fan community. We talked Who for a while, played the Top Trumps and Mini games, watched "Fatal Death", and had a rousing game of the "$100,000 Pyramid of Mars". These guys know their Who backwards and forwards - I could hold my own in the new series, but didn't have a chance on the classic stuff. I met the author/publisher of "A History", "I, Who" and a bunch of other fan guides. They finished up the night by driving over to PBS and hosted the call-a-thon for the Doctor Who block (I couldn't make it for that part :-( ). I had a great time. I don't know if anyone else in in the area, but I'll make sure to post earlier next time - it's well worth the drive.

Sounds like a great time, and they were mostly classic fans, so I have to ask, among these purists, how does the new series fare?

Everyone seemed to be really big fans of the new show. We watched all the Moffat episodes (including Curse of the Fatal Death). We spent a while talking about the new season and season 2 of Torchwood.
