Image of Fendahl is still a fave though - like a hauntological retro-fit, also liked City of Doom (Paris is cool, not to harp on but y'know we could clone Lalla - technologically we have the ability)

helping kids with homework I also keep remembering one of the episodes with a "blue" badge for mathematical excellence and wished they would start awarding them and that they would be as widely highly regarded...

Re: Doctor Who

Last night I dreamed about the bit in Creature from the Pit where the Doctor pulls out a book on Tibetan mountain climbing and then, a few seconds later, pulls out another book on how to read Tibetan. I remembered it as a sight gag but couldn't figure out how that would work -- if the first book is in Tibetan then the audience won't be able to read the title -- so in my dream the Doctor tries reading the first book then says, "It's in Tibetan" before pulling out the second book. Which makes more sense but isn't as funny. Annoyingly I can't find the scene on Youtube to see how it actually played out in the episode.
