Can foreshortening take the blame for the too-small bottom-of-nose-to-chin? Um, no. That was me. I have a propensity to lengthen faces from the eyes to the bottom of the nose.

This year's Christmas special was a good one (aren't they usually?) and for once, I think that I understood a good 95% of what was going on! On an average Dr Who episode, I'm 50% in the dark.
