Our couch was always backed up against the wall when I was a kid, so
hiding behind it wasn't much help. I used to run from the room, wait
until I thought it was safe, and then come back and ask what I'd
missed. I still do that occasionally, though not for 'Doctor Who'; I'm
a grown-up now and scared by completely different things.

Incidentally, did you know that the guy who writes 'Coupling' has
actually written for Doctor Who?
