About the Author


Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.

    This is exquisite! Good enough to be put on a DVD or maybe the official website. Whoever Richard is should be proud and hopefully be inspired to do more. Well done sir!

    Quite incredible. A beautiful piece of work on every level. Thanks for “spoiling” us with this. :-)

    Better than just a collection of clips taken directly from the episodes. This shows real talent.

    Nice, really nice. The always running Doctor who did not have the right. Does justice to each and every Doctor.
