>>>  Items of interest to British media fans and Seattle-area residents, 
>>>  and whatever else I feel like spewing about.  You have been warned. 

Sorry, but it's another bare-bones newsletter.  I should get my life back
after Anglicon.  And later this week I'll probably post some highlights
from the panel and video schedules to entice those of you who haven't
registered yet (and cannot access our web page).

On tap this time:
	Quick news items
	ANGLICON 9 in Seattle, 5/3/96 - 5/5/96 (Current info)
	Upcoming SotRT events


Subject: Quick news items

Sound bites:

	The new "Doctor Who" TV movie (now apparently "officially" a pilot)
	airs on Fox May 14.  (That is a Rusting TARDIS social night, and
	we'll being going residential - see the schedule of events below
	for preliminary details.)

Local news:

	Anglicon 9.  (Need I say more?)


	Here are a couple of Mr. Bean web pages:

	Obligatory pat-on-the-back-department: For nearly half-a-year I've
	been saying that Commander Cisco's girlfriend on "Deep Space 9" is
	a shape-shifter.  It seemed obvious to me that we were at least
	_supposed_ to think so (and I don't even watch regularly).  And
	everyone just laughed.  And now I've seen the preview for this week's
	episode.  Well, here it comes: "Told'ya so."  (Or so it seems - I
	haven't seen the episode yet.)
