I once chased you down St Martin's Lane around 11 years ago, in order to ask you to sign a Doctor Who novel for me...unfortunately it was a Paul McGann novel so I wholeheartedly apologise. After that, I often shared a cheery "hello!" with you whenever you passed the Quinto bookshop on Charing Cross Lane where I worked...thank you for brightening up my days then!
However, I digress. My question to you is this:-
You often refer to your Catholic upbringing in interviews and I know your views on religion have obviously been coloured by your life and experience.
However...as a Catholic myself, I am well aware of the difference between religion (a man-made construct) and faith ( something that comes from deeper within.) Am I correct in thinking that, although you no longer subscribe to a religious view, you are still nonetheless a person with great faith?
I might be wrong, but I often sense from interviews that you still possess a keen spiritual nature...?
