People who signed the Change.org petition to rename planet "HD 1069906B," "Gallifrey all got this email, but thought I'd share:

Vanessa Bailey (link added by OG) the astronomer who discovered the planet "HD 1069906B" has said she is supporting the cause and has written a piece that will be included in the letter to the IAU. Although we are still trying to get in contact with the BBC/ Doctor Who to get a statement from them on whether they support it or not. If anyone can get us in contact with them please email me at s.menhennet@gmail.com. Thanks

Yeay Vanessa Bailey. As if discovering a planet while a graduate student didn't make you awesome enough.
