By Paul Scoones and Felicity Fletcher

I'd like to begin with an apology for the lateness of this issue. I hadn't counted on the drain on my time teaching History and English at Auckland Boys Grammar School would be, and it's only in the last week, since my teaching practice ended, that I've been able to devote time to getting both this issue and Timestreams 2 completed.

On the subject of Timestreams, this will be a non-subscription publication, as no one had anything to say on the matter, one way or the other. Each person who gets a story published in Timestreams will receive a copy of that issue free. If we could afford it, we'd love to do the same thing for TSV writers, but the regular competition we've instigated for TSV contributors (see next page), should make up for it in part.

You've probably noticed that this issue is somewhat thinner than the last, but at 64 pages, it's actually the normal length for a TSV issue. TSV 21 was the exception.

Once again, David Bishop's 'Bulletin from Britain' failed to show up. The last one arrived just two days after TSV 21 went to print - but all the news in that instalment is now of course out of date.

A new feature we've started this issue are the 'Story Files' for the episodes currently screening here. Let us know what you think - are they worth continuing? Keep the reviews coming in - I'd now like ones of The Seeds of Death and The Mind Robber for TSV 23, which, fingers crossed, should be out mid-June...?

Lastly, I'd just like to remind you that if you want to be sure of receiving a reply from us to any of your questions, just enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

For those of you who were at AbbyCon, especially the Wellington Chapter members, I'd just like to dedicate this issue to Reginald - "Splendid chap, all of them!"

Paul Scoones

It's really good to see NZDWFC Chapters growing around the country. Anyone with ideas for the Auckland chapter is welcome to contact Paul or myself.

The most time consuming job in doing a zine is the typing. I would like to encourage people to send us their articles ready typed if they are able to - the only requirements being accurate typing and 2cm margins all round. However I don't want to put off anyone who cannot type their articles, all articles are still welcome!

Finally thank you to all the people who responded to the Sixth Doctor survey. I am now looking forward to analysing the Seventh.
