Sorry for the delay. Stuff happened. There were spiders. Very large spiders.

And blue crystals?? :D

And blue crystals?? :D

The spiders were quite insistent on there being blue crystals. :-)


I wasn't too sure you'd get that reference. Glad you did...

I wasn't too sure you'd get that reference. Glad you did...

No need to fear on that score, I'm a Pertwee girl (showing my age, but there you go). I always return the garden shed requesting the whereabouts of blue crystals, which I have a sudden urge to acquire :)


I started watching Who with Four and Sarah Jane, but I've been catching up with Three over the last 12 months, and I confess to loving him rather more than Four (don't tell TB!)

I started watching Who with Four and Sarah Jane, but I've been catching up with Three over the last 12 months, and I confess to loving him rather more than Four (don't tell TB!)

I know it's unfashionable to like Pertwee but when I was wee he rocked and there were some cracking stories: the Autons, the Sontarans, the Green Death and the spiders, just fer starters :)

Btw, so nice to finally meet someone who gets the spider joke - grin.

Being fashionable has never been of interest to me.

Ah, The Green Death - giant condom maggots! :D

Ah, The Green Death - giant condom maggots! :D

It's hard to get a better monster than giant condom maggots (except of course the deadly bubble wrap on the Ark in Space, which has left me never able to handle bubblewrap without exclaiming arrrgh! and flailing about in best luvvy fashion - grin).

Oh dear, we are getting to the heart of why I dig Brit telly. They got me young, they got me with Who.

OMG! The deadly green bubble warp of Ark cracks me up every time I think about it.

Oh dear, we are getting to the heart of why I dig Brit telly. They got me young, they got me with Who.

Ah but it's one of the best!

I am really interested in this topic.
