    Please let me be the first to post a congratulations on coming of age.

    BTW how does one officially become a member of the Gallifreyan Embassy? and do you issue passports?

    Seriously, are we members by virtue of signing up to the Forums? or by subscribing to Podshock? if so how many members do you have?

    Perhaps you could introduce an annual subscription for full membership to offset cost for the site and the podcast bandwidth. I for one would be happy to subscribe.

    Anyway, here's to another 21 years of The Embassy, and hopefully at least 21 more years of the show (at least 7 years per incarnation, with no more hiatuses)

    Great episode. One of the very best, and I still have about 15 minutes to go.

    Just some random comments. At one point it was asked "Who would play Douglas Adams?" I forget the context. But it seems obvious to me.

    Simon Greenall

    When he first appeared in "Love and Monsters", for a split second, I forgot Douglas Adams was dead. The guy looks so much like Adams that my heart skipped a beat, and I thought rumors of his death were just some sick joke.

    Another thing you guys discussed in regards to "The Satan Pit" was the references to Aliens. But no one mentioned that Danny Webb, who played Mr. Jefferson, the grizzled security officer, played Morse in Alien 3.

    Can't get much closer a reference to that. Which makes his comment to Rose about Air Ducts much more appropriate.

    Great episode, guys. Sorry I couldn't be there... was having a company-sponsored family outing that day at Canobie Lake Park. Great time!


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.
