"What is it with Xena the Warrior Princess? thunders Paul C. "She was present at the siege of Troy in 1300 B.C., the Persian invasion of Greece in 500 B.C., British Queen Boadicea’s rebellion around 50 A.D. Just how old IS she? And what about her wife, Gabrielle? [Italics mine - didn't want anyone to miss it! - MaryD<vbg>]Are they both really daughters of gods, or are they hitching rides with Dr. Who on his Tardis?" Xena and Gabriella are just good friends, little cupcake.
Paul swears Xena is really the leather-clad Sevateen warrior from early Dr. Who episodes. He wonders whether anybody remembers Chico the Rainmaker, a short-lived fantasy series from the 1970s about a boy who carries the shrunken head of Chico—"a friendly, thousand-year-old, English-speaking, magical South American medicine man"—in his backpack. Why, yes. I believe Blatchford just went to work for him.
