On Losing Geek Cred

I should turn in my Doctor Who Geek Card.

I’d forgotten that Graeme Harper was one of the pre-Hartnell Doctors in “Brain of Morbius.” Camfield, Philip Hinchcliffe, Robert Holmes–those are the easy ones. But Harper?

I’m not worthy of being a Doctor Who Geek if I can forget that Graeme Harper was a cameo Doctor.

Woe! Woe is me! I must hang my head in shame.
