It is with a heavy heart that I formally announce the closure of Behind the Sofa.
When I began this blog almost 6 years ago I never would have guessed that I would meet so many wonderful people and make so many new friends because of it.
But I feel the time has come to move on, and, as you may have guessed, I've been finding it more and more difficult to keep on top of things. It doesn't help that Typepad's CMS has really started to lose the plot, but that's another story.
Many of the contributors here will continue to post Doctor Who reviews on their own sites: Frank can be found on Cathode Ray Tube, Stuart on Feeling Listless and Iain podcasts via The Thumbcast. If you haven't done so already, I suggest you bookmark them all now. You won't regret it.
I have decided to consolidate my own output by putting all of my time and energy into Tachyon TV, which has just relaunched (there's a review of The Mutants on DVD if you fancy popping over). I also hope to persaude many of BTS's authors to contribute to that site too, so I really hope you'll join us over there.
Behind the Sofa won't be going anywhere - the archives for both this site and Volume 1 will remain online for the foreseeable future. I may turn comments off eventually, depending on how bad the spam gets, but I'm really proud of this site and I hope people still get some use out of it.
It just leaves me to thank everyone who has ever posted here, commented here or just spent time here. I would especially like to thank Damon, who took over stewardship of the blog for a time. Without him, we'd have closed down years ago.
Anyway, I'm terrible at goodbyes, so until next time...
