When I went up to the Arts Centre above the library where I work to attend a poetry workshop, I was completely unprepared to see *this* in a side room…
A panoply of disembowelled daleks, no less!
As you might have guessed, there’s a Dr. Who stage-play going on sometime in the next week. Not having been aware of that before this pile of props caught my eye, it was a serious dose of cognitive dissonance for yours truly. My first thought?
“How the f*ck did they get up the bloody stairs?”
Ah, childhood fears. They never really vanish, do they?
There is a reason for this bizarre (yet serendipitous) post: when this goes live, I’ll be up in London for my first attendance at a BSFA monthly meeting, which is being held in some not-too-pricey pub in Belgravia. So probably no VCTB link action tomorrow morning (unless the trains get back sooner than I think they do), but I’ll redeem myself with a full report of the meeting sometime after I get up on Thursday (which is my day off, thankfully).
(Were there enough brackets in that last paragraph?)
So, enjoy your daleks, and enjoy your Wednesday evening – I know I plan to enjoy mine. Adios!
