My name is
I edit all around, but the kind of editing that I most enjoy is creating "from the real world" articles. You'll find work of mine in that field on pages such as pub, pencil, wood, space suit and glass. I also enjoy researching the going-ons behind the scenes; some of my work in that field you will find in production days.
I am also currently working on a huge project, which I like to call "day of the year article clean-up". Once I'm finished with that, I plan on starting a new project: either pages for incidental music, or for filming locations. Or — who knows — I can do both!
While I haven't truly been here for very long (only CzechOut usually frowns at such things.2,012 days), I have been very active during my brief span here. I am well-versed enough in policy and other matters to answer questions in place of an admin, although

Today in Doctor Who history Edit
18 June 1815 was the date of the Battle of Waterloo, (AUDIO: The Curse of Davros) a military conflict on Earth which resulted in the defeat of the reconstituted French imperial army of Napoléon Bonaparte by the British under the Duke of Wellington and the Prussians under Marshal Blucher. (PROSE: World Game) Wellington reflected on that particular day, telling the Doctor, "The only thing sadder than a battle lost is a battle won." (PROSE: The Eight Doctors)
An important battle in European history, Waterloo was subject to several alien incursions. The 18th of June therefore saw both the Players and Davros trying to reverse the outcome, and a consequent need for the Doctor's intervention. Both invasions were stopped by people surrounding the Doctor. In the case of the Player assault on the "rightful" outcome of 18 June, the Time Lord Serena took a fatal bullet for Wellington. Equally, Bonaparte himself deliberately lost the battle so as to stop the proliferation of Dalek weapons amongst his army, and thereby thwarted Davros' plans to take of the Earth. (PROSE: World Game; AUDIO: The Curse of Davros)
