Surely we're going to have an etymology special?

Flash?

etymology
1398, from Gk. etymologia, from etymon "true sense" (neut. of etymos "true," related to eteos "true") + logos "word." In classical times, of meanings; later, of histories. Latinized by Cicero as veriloquium.

Fascinating.

If we’re looking for “big themes” beginning with E, how about Eternity ... and a show that doesn’t have an ending? I’m not entirely sure how that would work (because, to be honest, this came to me in a dream) but if somehow, perhaps in editing, the Eternity episode were to loop round into itself and begin again ... ?

It could be like Groundhog Night.

We've just put together a list of E Themes that seem fruitful - it's here.

Thanks, Gray - does that mean from now on that we should exclusively concentrate on that list?

Not exclusively - it's an early cut at areas which we thought might prove fruitful but, for example, it wouldn't have thrown up encryption. So continue to advance on all fronts but don't overlook those ones in particular.

Right, thanks, Flash. Have we got Epidemiology?

On Ectoplasm - I wonder if we could compile a list of substances which fake ecto is known to have been made from, and use samples of said substances as panel props?

Even more fun if panellists could be persuaded to produce them from various bodily orifices.

We could vote on which panellist/which orifice; sort of elves' picnic.
