    Mr. De Lance, I have slowly evolved into a big fan of yours over the years. I recently saw an episode of “Touched by an Angel” where you played a farmer from Clarion S. Dakota. This was the clincher. You were outstanding, (in the rain at the end), and I really enjoyed the character you played.
    I am now looking forward to watching Torchwood, which I have never heard of before, but after seeing it listed on your site I checked it out and am impressed with the list of characters, (you included of course).

    Looking forward to this, hope you get to apply some of your humour to the role like you have as Q in Star Trek.

    Very pleased to see that you are playing another Q, and very pleased to have you on another of my favorite shows. (Not forgetting Janos Bartok)
