Sorry, should have said before; Jean and I would be interested.

Would we then be (nearly) into double figures?

How many would constitute a critical mass?

Hi Cibator,

Interesting that you should use the term 'pot-boiler'.

Perhaps you saw offered for sale last year, a copy of BFTUOAB which DW had inscribed for his proof-reader Derek Bradley?

Stevie, re point 2): last time I read BFTUOAB, I sought out a copy of Star Raker on DW's recommendation.

I found it an engaging novel (about the development of a new aircraft), and whilst it retain ...

First time anybody's wished me that!

I sometimes think of it as 'Walpurgisnacht' - somehow it seems more sinister in German!

Thanks Darren

Sounds like an interesting evening; glad you had Shane there to keep you company.

Did you meet any other DW fanatics (potential new recruits)?

Ah, now the 8th of January also fell on a Friday in 1897.

DW was born just before 8pm.

I hope that will be a convenient time for many to raise a glass of something to toast his Birthday!

Spotted it in the schedule, but missed most of it, so can't really pass judgement.

Although I would say that it seemed an original idea for a drama.

I wonder how many people these days have he ...

Boxing Day again, and time to remember the founder of this website, the late Bob Rothwell.

Where would we be today if Bob hadn't started this website all those years ago, and if Charles hadn't take ...

Well, I'd like to see The Search For Roger Brook, because I'm not entirely convinced that he'd allow a drop of water to get the better of him, much less do for his beloved Georgina.

Well, without even knowing which of DW's characters you would choose, Alan, I for one would subscribe to your book.

It would be absolutely splendid to read some further adventures of old familiar f ...

Yes, well it seems a shame that you managed to find something good to say about it.

I don't think many people under the age of forty have even heard of DW, never mind his book titles.
