Firefly - Shiny

Going home

Heading back from Cornwall, we've made a rest stop at Gordano Services. In the foyer is this little chap:

All together now: "Curse you and your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

Extant - Halle Berry

Lynda Bellingham, RIP.

Sad to hear of the death of Lynda Bellingham. Amongst other things, she was mum in the Oxo ads, Faith Greyshott in Second Thoughts and Faith in the Future, and of course The Inquisitor in the Doctor Who serial The Trial of a Time Lord. She always came across as really lovely and genuine. I know she'd hoped it to make it beyond Christmas. Really sad that she didn't manage that. At least she died in her husband's arms.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say she was a national treasure. A sad loss.
