If your lust for ticking is as boundless as eternity, please spare a thought for some of our earlier polls on this season. The ones for Mummy on the Orient Express and Time Heist seem particularly neglected!

After that, see you after wobs for the wobs special reactipoll, and then an end-of-season OMNIPOLL as is Traditional. (I should probably include the 50th special Day of the Doctor and the Matt Smith-goodbyeeee xwobsmas special Time of the Doctor in that too, right? Or not? Your thoughts are APPRECIATED.)

Does anyone use LJ any more?
Unless anyone else wants to, I'll get a look up when I'm back home probably Wednesday for Deep Breath. That is, if people would still like one? LJ is a ropey old thing at the best of times but it still has the best community and poll features in social media I'm aware of...

Your drinking reminder
Seeing as yesterday I couldn't organise a rabbit out of a brewery, another reminder!

DRINKS!
TONIGHT!
FROM 17h30!
ANGEL & CROWN!
They do light food all evening i.e sammiches chips etc. There is a Benito's Hat nearby if we need to go for burritos en masse :)

I shall endeavour to find a copy of DWM or at least Doctor Who Adventures so we can seriously analyse the thought provoking contents within and most certainly not draw n0bs on the Valeyard.
