No, we have a personal continuity. By definition there's no such thing as a personal canon.
Try telling that to those guys on Sons of Guns.

Sorry - canon/cannon jokes never get old with me.

Anyway, anyone wanting a bit of a chuckle might want to check out the back pages of IDW's Doctor Who Ongoing #15 that came out this week. There's a little Fred Hembeck comic strip (remember HIM? Haven't seen his name in ages) commenting on Doctor Who crossovers. I mention it because as anyone who reads IDW knows they always run about 10 pages of house ads at the back. The strip is on the promo page for upcoming issues right after the "Next issue" promo for #16. Considering comics are put together months in advance, therefore this issue would have been put together and Hembeck's comic strip commissioned well before the TNG crossover announcement, someone at IDW (or at least Hembeck) must have known the announcement was going to get mixed reaction from some quarters!
