I have yet to see that myself but I am super hyped all the same!

I first followed Mark when Doctor Who reviews began in December 2010; I jumped to Reads when they started the Hobbit and LOTR. I've followed most projects on and off since, and discovered some very cool media I probably wouldn't have otherwise.

But my biggest takeaway from this experience is Mark's unshaking view of things from a BIPOC and queer lens. As a (mostly) cishet white dude, this is a perspective I didn't know I needed but have deeply, deeply appreciated. I am only the ally I am today because Mark has pointed out the injustices, struggles, and stresses of the marginalized by their expectations and disappointments/appreciations along the way. Thank you so much for that.

>I had also wondered what species Adira would be, and I'm still not entirely sure

They were Xahean, like Po.

>The Federation lets Su’Kal traipse off to Kaminar instead of keeping him for experimentation, even though he blew up like half the galaxy and could very well do it again unless he undergoes extensive therapy?

The implication is that would only happen when he's around a massive source of dilithium, like the planet he was on. Remove him from that and he's fine.

>Did we ever get an explanation for why Adira and the Barzans (and half the galaxy apparently) knew the same piece of music?

A few episodes back when they intercepted the Kelpien ship's distress call they found that it was distorted by the nebula and turned into the melody. How it managed to make a coherent piece of music, that people adapted into a lullaby without understanding its actual origin, goes unexplained.

I'm not concerned with Good Omens or Anansi Boys as Neil is personally running both of those. American Gods has suffered because he wasn't; we shall have to see where Sandman goes.

>During the filming of Season 2, he was diagnosed with ALS. The role of Aurellio was specifically written for him to incorporate his wheelchair.

I love that they did this for him, a great move.

It's safe to say hologram technology has advanced by the 31st century; there's no need to prepare for a holodeck visit, as it will not only dress you for the scenario, but even change your outward physiology to a similar-enough species.

Oh, you're welcome! It was a great bit of fun to flex my local history muscles a bit. Glad it's been appreciated.

More Gaiman TV is in the works - it turns out that Good Omens 2 will be produced alongside...



...with Lenny Henry - one of the inspirations for the story originally - serving as an executive producer alongside the author. More on Neil's blog.
