It's great to be back :D I'm actually not supposed to be on now, kinda should be studying for final exams. But they'll be over in 10 days so I'll probably be on a lot more then!

I don't usually like sci-fi but this was so witty and easy to read! I could hear Gus rambling at me the whole time. You've got a lot of short stories for me to catch up on, looking forward to them!

Awesome writing man. Your setting was good, and so were the characters. You could develop on the futuristic part more though I think. Keep writing! :D

I loved this! The Doctor was immensely funny, quirky and entertainning and the exchanges between him and the detective were so much fun to read. Also, as usual, the twist was unpredictable - not to mention hilarious!
