I think I'm going to like this story a lot. So far it appears love is the air but there's always that one guy (probably the closet gay) that has to stir the shit pot. Looking forward to future chapters.

Hey! Don't judge the "closet guy"! LOL

I have vague recollections of reading this tale elsewhere, but can't figurer where because the story is posting pretty much simultaneously on all the sites I frequent. And you're probs righ about "closet guy".

Like you I also had the feeling of deja vu when reading this, but couldn't find it. Then I stumbled across a reference to it in a Forum Thread at AD where it appeared in 2018 - but from an author with  different name...

Armstrong & Miller were one of my favourite British comedy duos. They've both now got sparkling individual careers doing other things, but it's well worth searching out other clips if you enjoyed this one.

That clip is brilliant! I especially loved the stare down as the good Doctor began to extract his vengeance!

Ablsolutely hilarious! It WOULD feel good to be "Roberts", wouldn't it?
