Doctor Who Magazine's Editor Interviewed! by Jason Arnopp
(from How to Be a Journalist)
I found this very interesting. If you're not at all curious about how magazines are put together, however, I imagine there's little of interest here. Though one quote is telling about the mindset of some Who fans:
We also liaise with Steven Moffat - generally about our interviews, but never for reviews or opinion pieces
You just know some people claim he controls reviews.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

An absolute tonne of stuff this week, almost all of it Star Wars related, including the new Blu-rays of course. This delayed the update until today... not because of the post, for once (though it was later than it should have been), but because I was away for a few days and needed the time to account for it all once I got back. (This still only goes up to Saturday's post, however.)

Number of titles in collection: 1,384 [up 8]
Of which DVDs: 1,139 [up 4]
Of which Blu-rays: 245 [up 4]

Number of discs in collection: 3,429 [up 23]
Number of films in collection: 1,465 [up 12]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,175 [up 63]

The real accounting difficulty lies down here: it's time again for a running time update. Yay! So...

Total running time of collection (approx.):
247 days, 20 hours, and 29 minutes.
(Up 5 days, 8 hours, and 3 minutes from last month.)

That's a pretty big jump -- the third biggest ever, after the one covering last Christmas (the largest by almost 3½ days) and the one three months ago. Lovely. I might check later to see how it ranks in terms of other jumps (and update this, of course).

See you next week, faithful reader.
