Thinking ahead...

My nephew Jakob turns 5 at the end of April.

I've been having a bit of a think, and I reckon I might get him this on DVD. On the basis that I loved it when I was his age (literally. It was first broadcast ten days after my fifth birthday), so hopefully he will too. As his uncle, I feel a responsibility to ensure that he is brought up enjoying the finer geekier things in life.

(Checks: Certificate U. That's okay. Although I was going to suggest that if he finds it scary he watch with his mummy and/or daddy. And they have at least one sofa that doesn't have a wall behind it, so that's alright. If this works out well, I'll either get him this for Christmas, or make it clear that I'll happily lend him subsequent serials.)


  • Life on board

    The Cabin Pressure fan in me is taking great delight in addressing Sarah as "Skip," since she spends most of the time behind the wheel of the boat…

  • Maybe I'm too literal-minded...

    ...but I feel very strongly that a place with a name like Horsey Mere really ought to have actual, y'know, horses...

  • Happy Star Wars Day!!!

    May the Fourth be with you!
