Word-Search Wednesday : Christmas Special

As we're nearing the end of the year in which Scot Goes Pop marked its fifth anniversary (it all started in May 2008 with this post), I thought we'd have a special Christmas treat - a word-search puzzle made up of the names of some of the people who have left comments on this blog over the last five-and-a-half years.

You're looking for 29 names - some of them are regulars, and others are well-known or notable people who may have only left one or two comments. Please don't be offended if your name isn't there - if I'd included everyone, there would have had to be about 200 rows!

The solution will appear here on Saturday.  In the meantime, a very happy Christmas to you all!


  1. 29?

    Oh dear....

    I only got 19!

  2. I thought I would go through your archives from the start to see the posters names. I hadn't realised you had written so much! I gave up at mid 2010 otherwise I would have developed RSI. It was a trip down memory lane. Pollster such as MURK you don't hear from anymore. The American gun lobby are shall we say have a strange outlook on life. I did find about a dozen from a quick glance and see how I fare later today when I return from the sales.

  3. S Moffat, gigantic cock or just not very clever?

  4. Actually, I'm a big fan of Steven Moffat, going all the way back to the days of Press Gang. I do wish he would take the show back in a grittier direction, and away from all the 'Doctor as a superhero' stuff. He's certainly capable of doing that (The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances was quite dark and gritty by the standards of the revived series), but whether he will or not, only time will tell.

    I thought the story ideas last night were fine, but there was too much crammed in. I think they really had to decide whether to do a traditional 'Christmassy' special or to do a proper dramatic finale for the Matt Smith era that tied up all the loose ends. In the end they tried to do both, and kind of fell between two stools.

  5. My mum didn't understand what was going on.

    How come the weeping angel in NY transported Rory and Amy back in time just by touching them but one could grab Clara by the foot without any ill effects?

    Continuity is important. Especially when you're making it up as you go along. And no DeM resets either.

  6. Well, that distinction has been there in previous episodes. It's been ages since I watched them, but I think in 'Blink' the angels were transporting people in time, but in 'The Time of Angels'/'Flesh and Stone' they were killing people (but without touch having any immediate effect).
