Thanks to JuliaK for sending me the log of the chat. I was on a borrowed pc away from home so I did get to attend and ask a few Qs that I didn't get answered during the last Derek chat but I couldn't get my own log!
Note: this transcript has been edited by me (cleaned out the people entering and exiting the chat and bolded/coloured text) to make it easier to read the questions and Robbi and Derek's answers. Please don't post *this* particular edited transcript anywhere else.

I know they've directed, but do any of them have a story that they really want to do in an episode, maybe a scary story from their childhood, something they had read about perhaps?
RobbiChong: In a few of the episodes
that explored my character

enough demand for it they will print it
