Letter from the BBC

10.30pm

‘Whole Lotta Love’ – Led Zeppelin

What a beautiful surprise when I awoke this morning!  A letter from LONDON

This is what it said:

DEAR RITCHERD,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR LETTER.

PLEASE FIND ENCLOSED DOCTOR WHO INFORMATION PACK AND A SELECTION OF FAN PICTURES – I’M AFRAID THESE ARE ALL WE HAVE.

YOURS SINCERELY

FRANCES M MABLE

PRODUCER’S SECRETARY

Yes, a letter from the DOCTOR WHO Production Office at BBC Television Centre.

It’s a nice pack as well and despite the fact that it’s all photocopied it’s a nice thing to have and I’m not at all disappointed.  The pack includes: standard letter from JOHN NATHAN-TURNER, story table with information on COMPANIONS, MONSTERS, ENEMIES and DOCTORS, ‘WHO IS DOCTOR WHO?’, FAN CLUB address, EXHIBITION information, a complete list of DOCTOR WHO merchandise licensees with contact addresses and numbers, RECORD and VIDEO info, THE MAKING OF DOCTOR WHO, TARDIS info, SYLVESTER McCOY biog, SOPHIE ALDRED biog and a list of ARTISTES ad AGENTS addresses.

They also sent me postcards of: RICHARD HURNDALL, LIS SLADEN, K9, NICOLA BRYANT, SYLVESTER McCOY, and (my personal favourite pic) BONNIE LANGFORD.

I’m chuffed!

Later:

‘Cross Town Traffic’ – Jimi Hendrix

Today, I spent a while with Una Baker, which was nice.  She says none of her group have jobs yet.

I also saw Alice for the first time in ages and chatted dead abstractedly with Ash and Mooney and a bunch of others.

Oh yes, and the DHSS are pissing me about badly!

I saw Lucy in town and although I don’t know her at all (only from seeing her with Ash), she’s well groovy.

Saw Mark Dalton in town, too, which was dead topical.

OR WAS IT HIM?
