Just a quick update to bring you the news, David Tennant is quitting as Doctor Who after 2009's series of specials.

Interview on BBC website

I have to say I've always prefered Christopher Ecclestones Doctor to Tennants but he has grown on me over the last couple of years. The speculation will now begin as to who is going to succeed him. I don't have any candidates yet just so long as it's not Russell Brand.

In other news, I'm still trundling my way through my India pictures and will get around to posting a visit report eventually. Also, last night I went to Manchester to hear Neil Gaiman reading from his new book. 'The Graveyard Book' and in the Q & A afterwards he revealed his next book project is a non-fiction travel book retracing the journey through China of Tripitaka, Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy from 'Journey to the West' (having just done a quick Wikipedia search for link, I've discovered the monks name wasn't Tripitaka but that was a title he's sometimes referred to as. Since my main frame of reference is the Monkey tv series then for now the monk will remain Tripitaka otherwise I'll just get very confused)

Just to finish with, here's one of my India pictures for you. It's a panorama made from 3 merged pictures taken at Golconda Fort near Hyderabad. It's my first go at taking pictures to be merged and in future I will be more careful ;)

You may want to try microsoft's live photo gallery. Download it to your pc ala picassa. You can then select your pictures - say make panorama and it does the rest for you - the results are very good too. Worth a try,

Thanks Andy, the microsoft Live set looks quite handy. I might give it a try. I use photoshop elements for most of my photo adjusting and it's fairly straight forward. The only thing I need to remember is to make sure there aren't any mobile factors in my pics and that I keep the exposures the same. School boy errors really ;)

Glad you like the pic. Photoshop Elements did most of the work for me,I just need to get the original photos right next time.

Given recent events the chances of Mr Brand being the BBC's choice for Dr Who, is as likely as Thursday evenings being quiet in Hoole between 6pm and 7pm...

That's now but in a years time? We shall see. (Hoole however will never be quiet on a Thursday night, however)

On a different note I love the picture - you could write about an evil place where instead of rays of sunshine there are rays of gloom - lik ein the middle section of the picture.
