Behind the Sofa: End of Volume 1
Volume 1 of Behind the Sofa has come to an end.
Volume 2 is about to begin.
Don't worry, we haven't done a JNT and been persuaded to stay, we're simply regenerating. We don't know where you all got the idea that we were leaving!
The reasons for Behind the Sofa Volume 2 are simple: we want to shake things up a bit and get more co-ordinated with our content. This doesn't mean we're going to have secret meetings and decide on our next line of attack about David Tennant's haircut, but it does mean that authors will be co-ordinated so that hopefully you'll see fresh content on the blog on an almost daily basis. At least that's the plan. In order to make this work BTS Volume 2 will be launching with a handful of contributors and no more.
Comments will still be available on the new blog but greater moderation will be enforced. The various bunfights that crop up on a weekly basis have become boring and distracting and have on occasion brought BTS staff to the brink of Morbius-like insanity. But on the other hand things are unlikely to be dull around here and that's as it should be.
So we'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has posted here in Volume 1. It's been fun, frequently insane and you were all fantastic. And so were we.
However, Volume 1 will still be available for reference and very soon it'll be resting at its old address of: https://tachyontv.typepad.com/waiting_for_christopher/
Furthermore, Volume 2 will still link back to the archives.
The other news is that
a) Tachyon TV will be getting a similar face lift before the month is out, with closer ties to BTS itself
b) We'll be releasing a Voyage of the Damned podcast in the next few days
and most exciting of all (we hope)
c) we'll be launching a companion blog called On the Sofa which will be dedicated to everything but the Doctor Who franchise. More news on this will become apparent later this month.
See you there,
Neil, Damon and John
