Colin Baker cameo amuses. Plus what would you like to see on this blog?

AppropriationNew Who fans, you won’t care about this.

Old Who fans: if you haven’t been listening to Big Finish’s ‘Gallifrey’ series, you won’t have heard Colin Baker’s uncredited cameo in Appropriation. No, he’s not the Doctor – he’s Commander Maxil. Amusing, non?

Just a quick poll for regular readers: I know I said I wouldn’t mention or review the Big Finish stuff in this blog, but would anyone want me to? And is there anything else you’d like to see more – or less – coverage of?
