Jim NortonWhere would you travel to if you had a TARDIS?

I’ve never been asked that question before, I’ve never thought about it. Off the top of my head, as a kid I grew up in Ireland and my grandmother came from a little village up in Monahan, a tiny little hamlet and as a kid I used to go there for holidays and I used to hear these wonderful stories of the nineteen hundreds.

Although people weren’t well off, life seemed to be so much less complicated and it was quiet and leisurely and I always had a feeling it must have been wonderful to live then, just to have your little farm and just to have that responsibility and no jet planes flying overhead.

As I live in London and sometimes in New York I tend to be in places where there’s lots of noise and I pine for the countryside. So if I could take a little trip back it would be back to the leafy glades of Monahan in the nineteen hundreds.
