I'm fairly certain that everyone who has ever written a tale involving strong female characters -in particular a lead character - has been asked some variation of, 'Why did you make your women so strong?', and/or, 'Why did you make your hero a woman?'

Sometimes I ask myself whether there really is a fate or destiny to things, and it's hard to be sceptical when, three years later, I find myself (along with James Doherty of the National Autistic Society Scotland), not in Hollywood, but on a Scottish street late one Sunday night meeting Joss Whedon.

He wooed me with Buffy, committed to me with Angel and broke my heart with Firefly. Garnering the kind of devotion that you can only create by pumping yourself twice weekly into the homes of geeks, gays and feminists, Joss Whedon knows how to make a fanboy (or girl) out of anyone.
