I first started collecting knickers in 1983 when at the Longleat Exhibition I was sold a pair of Janet Fielding's underwear by a make-up lady. But let me be clear on this; there is nothing "perverted" or "weird" about my collection. We all collect things we like, and I find knickers more personal than an autograph on the back of a plastic cup.
To date I have ninety four pairs of knickers which I think you'll agree is a wonderful achievement! I have built this collection up by begging, borrowing and on three occasions stealing. I like to write to female Doctor Who celebrities for items of their clothing and over the years it's become pretty clear to me that the way to ask is to not refer to their "knickers" but their "feminine undergarments".
Once the full gallery is up you'll see just how wonderful and original my collection is. I also intend to include a gallery of the various rejection letters I've received, as well as some of the more surprising replies.
People are *always* asking me if I have any men's pants from Doctor Who. I'd like to make it absolutely clear right now that I am not a gay pervert. Lots of my very best friends are gay but the thought of asking for another man's pants is frankly dirty. To this end I rather hope I've heard the last of one cast member who continually *insisted* on sending me items of his clothing.
There is a tab on the left for anyone from the press who is as interested and excited in these knickers as I am. Please feel free to browse the galleries and if you do use pictures elsewhere please do give me full credit for them.
Finally I'm *frequently* asked which item from my collection is my favourite. It's so hard to say, but if I'm honest, if I'm really honest, then in all honesty and at the end of the day it's actually the ones I got first of all - Janet's.
I hope you enjoy my collection as much as I do all the time.
