In Other News
The Pirate Planet Launch
I had a fun evening at the launch of "The Pirate Planet" (a novelisation of the 1978 Doctor Who story, originally written by Douglas Adams and now adapted by James Goss). I learnt a lot about science from Dr Marek Kukula. I even made a new friend...
"Come on ladies, come and get your tangerines, 6 for a pound, get 'em quick!"
Doing "scary hands" with fellow Fan Show host, Luke Spillane.
My new best friend, K-9.
Farewell, Sir John Hurt.
I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Sir John Hurt's passing. I was lucky enough to meet Sir John Hurt at Gallifrey One in LA last year, he was so lovely. He was a hugely talented actor and an exceptional War Doctor. Farewell, Sir John Hurt and thank you.
Doctor Who Experience Visit
It was lovely to visit the Doctor Who Experience and stare at the gorgeous console rooms. Sadly it will be closing this year so if you love Doctor Who but haven't been, I highly recommend planning a trip! I've been multiple times over the last three years and there's always something new to look at. For more pics from my trip, see my Instagram.
My Twitter account now has a blue tick so you really know it's me! If you're not following already, you can do here.
Stand Up To Trump
Tens of thousands marched across the UK in response to President Trump's Muslim ban, including myself. My first protest and most definitely not my last.
