Doctor Who - 50th anniversary logo

Oh, that was pleasantly nostalgic...

One of the default screensavers that my MacBook chooses at random is a display of various songs from iTunes. Attempting to wake the poor thing up when that's the screensaver occasionally involves actually making it play one of the songs.

This morning it was this one:

Very nice to be reminded how entertaining Iron Maiden were. Are, for that matter, not that I follow them these days.

In a hole in the ground...

I'm a bit of a happy bunny today, on account of having acquired a copy of this. It's currently unavailable on Amazon (and because of Audiogo going into administration, I'm not sure when or if it's ever likely to be available, so when I saw a copy in the local W H Smith's I decided I'd pick it up. Had a slightly paranoid moment when the person at the desk trying to find it in the drawers of CDs and DVDs couldn't actually find it! But they eventually managed to find it. Haven't listened to it yet - I suspect I'll bung it on for the journey to work next week. Really looking forward to it, as I have very fond memories of the original broadcast.

Incidentally, am rather delighted that someone has uploaded some contemporary BBC continuity, included clips of the 3rd episode, to Youtube. :-)
