Change to Kasterborous Comments Policy

Over the past few months we’ve noticed an increase in the number of comments that are off-topic, pedantic, or needlessly critical of the articles upon which they have been posted.

Now, I’m not saying that criticism isn’t warranted – we rely on our community to keep us straight – but it would be far better to keep such messages private rather than getting away from the point of the topic under discussion.

As a result, we have formulated a new comments policy.

In future, comments must be on-topic, not insulting to other readers and treat the contributors of Kasterborous – who offer their time free of charge – with appropriate respect.

Meanwhile, anyone who has criticism of a particular post – including whether they think it is factually or grammatically inaccurate –  should email me. Factual errors will be resolved, and the person(s) who contacted us will be credited (comments along these lines will of course be accepted, but the preferred route is a direct email so I can make the changes as immediately as possible).

These new rules will be highlighted at the foot of every article. Let’s keep everything tidy and stick to the point – discussing Doctor Who!

Christian Cawley


A long-term Doctor Who fan, Christian grew up watching the show and has early memories of the Graham Williams era. His favourite stories are Inferno, The Seeds of Doom and Human Nature (although The Empty Child, Blink and Utopia all come close). When he’s not bossing around the news team, Christian is a freelance writer specialising in mobile technology and domestic computing, and enjoys classic rock, cooking and spending time in the countryside with his wife and young children. You can find him on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
