    The comment I left about someone needing a lie down was referring to me!!!
    As I was typing it I thought, hang on, this is really pedantic, but I thought, oh well, I’m committed now – or should be.

    I love the subliminal messages! So very odd!!

    Attack of the Cybermen is now one of my favourites – I really don’t remember it being that good. I do agree with Fake Keith though – what were they thinking letting the companion weild a gun and having the Doctor tell her to shoot some one?

    I watched the first Primeval – not bad. I’ll watch the second and then decide if I’m going to become a fan.

    A big hello to the Head of Pertwee!
