I did delete it, yes. I just figured that mong mong wasn't all that interested in the answer anyway. Could be mistaken of course.
I do love SF but it's very hard to find good SF. If you're writing fiction in present time, the entire structure is already there: you have to work with life on earth, the laws of physics, the laws of mankind, human nature, etc.
In SF however, you can start creating from zero. You can make up an entire new universe and I do think that this is harder to do because the world you create still has to make sense and you still have to make a connection with the reader.
In dr. Who, the main character is a time lord, which means that he can travel through space and time. In order for the stories to make sense, you need really clever authors.
Doctor Who had some fantastic authors working for its show lately: Stephen Moffat (also the one behind "Sherlock", with Benedict Cumberbatch) and Neil Gaiman for instance.
There are rumors doing the rounds that Rafa's pirata look will make a comeback in the second half of next year. I'm having a hard time believing it but I certainly would like to see it, if only for a few tournaments.
Edit: hmmm...pictures of a sleeveless shirt for the US Open 2014....it looks promising but still, I'll only believe it when I see it.
