  1. My opinion on the whole Osgood kerfuffle is that it was Zygon-Osgood that got zapped by Missy and it is Human-Osgood that is coming back in Series 9.

  2. Guys – listen – Don’t ever put down your geeky nerd superpowers again!! I’m an over-worked, middle-aged, single-mom fangirl with not enough hours in the day to read everything I want to read. I *count* on y’all over-analyzing !! I use it to impress my friends {sigh}
    And thanks once again for the heads-up about TimeGateCon. Can’t wait to see Michelle Gomez and Katy Manning. Haven’t been to a con in years, will be cosplay-ing, hope I can pull it off.
    Thanks, Elaine, Charleston, SC

  3. Thanks for the nice words, Elaine. Also, we’re glad our sage wisdom has been of use to you in conversations with others, even when we’re 100% wrong (which happens 80% of the time on most occasions).

    Also, have a GREAT time at TimeGateCon! Rock the cosplay, enjoy meeting Gomez and Manning, and have so much fun that you’ll never want to leave and will definitely want to come back.
