Do you know or have you ever known anyone who shares his/her name with a Doctor Who character? If you have an uncle named Harry Sullivan; a neighbor named Martha Jones; etc. In college I knew a guy named Pete Tyler, and as a "close but no cigar" I once had a student named David Ross, who went by "Dave" (so his name was "Dave Ross" -- never asked him if he was the creator of the Daleks; lol).

And please don't tell me you have a friend named Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart!

Hey, that is awesome! And that reminds me -- I knew a "Thomas Baker," but he went by "Thomas" and never "Tom," so I guess he counts as another "near miss."

I always thought that the name 'Romana' was actually ver nice and so if I ever have a daughter I may just consider that name (if that counts). Razz

At Megacon in March, I was dressed as the 5th Doctor, when a girl comes up to me and tells me her name is Tegan. Her parents were fans!
