In transit to south coast. Refreshment has been taken and a fine bacon and egg muffin it was too. Not enough attention paid to the tomato sauce distribution but I can live with that. Onwards. I have some pupil's education to disrupt.
Enjoyed Sir TP and Lady MP yesterday, the book and album are a treat. I've interviewed Terry enough times now to know that it is worth sitting through the quiet to get to what will be reached if we show patience. In radio we are terrified of silence but sometimes you have to wait. And waiting whilst one of the greatest brains sparks and fires is still a privilege. Long may he inspire.
And today we welcome Mark Gatiss. One time League of Gentleman star and now Dr Who and Sherlock writer and author and comedian and author all round good guy. He has written a Dr Who special An Adventure In Space And Time which details how the doctor came into being which goes out tomorrow. And so (obvs) we try DR WHO oldies and step back from the lit touch paper
Have a well-moisturised and perfumed Wednesday, see you after 5.
