Fencing Sculptor's Diary

The Ramblings of a Reluctant Civil Servant

Who's Who and What's What

I was up until silly o'clock this morning shifting boxes of action figures up into the loft and try and clear my studio / spare bedroom in case I had a guest staying with me for a few days.

A friend from fencing had his lease terminated recently and was supposed to move into a new place last week but at the point of moving in and collecting the keys from the estate agent the landlord's solicitor halted the process leaving my mate high and dry. So for the last week he's been bombing around (not literally of course - that would be the exploding fatwa pixies) looking for a new pad.

Yesterday morning he collard me and asked if the worst came to the worst could he crash (again not literally…. that would be the conflagrant fatwa pixies) at my place until his flat situation was resolved. Well Robs a nice guy and I didn't want to let him down so I agreed. But what he and probably few people probably realise is that I have to fill my bedroom up with crates of action figures and shite to maintain the illusion that I in fact live in some pristine Ikea showroom. Reality couldn't be further from the truth…..as evidenced from three recent posts which illustrated how yet another 4 cubic feet of living accommodation is now occupied by completely unnecessary but undoubtedly 'shiny' stuff.

However while I was up in the loft I found a crate of missing Doctor Who videos and as if to affirm what a mass of contradictions I am I set to preparing an ordered list of the untold mass of chaos that are my belongings…..

(BTW Robert phoned me this afternoon to say that his move went smoothly and that my spare bed wasn't needed….relief all round…. However the loft is completely full…you couldn't get a sausage in there (well to be honest you probably could), certainly I can't fit in there…and attempt to enter the space now requires crates to be moved around your person in one giant form of Human Tetris…God help me if I get trapped up there….I'll need the fire brigade to rescue me… 

Where was I? ...Oh yes the List...

I am profoundly impressed with that lot. If I had rediscovered such a hoard, I'd be tempted to spend the next year enjoying them in sequence a few nights a week - and I'm not even a fan. Still, I'm sure some of them would bring back childhood Saturday tea-time memories for me. I stopped watching Dr Who sometime during Tom Baker's run, I think, as I saw no P Davidson estipodes, and only saw one or two of Colin Baker's.

This is exactly what I have been doing and it's been fab.

I had forgotten that I had quite so many. The video's were all bought from a discount outlet in Bromely in the early to mid 1990's and then consigned to the loft. I am particularly enjoying some of the Peter Davidson stories which I haven't seen since my yoof !

Two of the stories I most want to see Tom Baker Episodes - the Talons of Weng Chang, Full Circle.

I was thrilled to find that I had the whole Keys to time season...I shall enjoy watching those. For somereason a couple of them pappear never to have been watched....I can't remember Romana or K-9 at all !

Oddly, I do remember Romana and K9. The one was sophisticated and a little bit sexy and the other was a waste of time if you were more than eight years old. Didn't Romana turn out to be a Time Lord, and regenerated into another actress at some point? I remember hearing that the original actress and Tom Baker were an item for a while. I must say that he was one of my favourite doctors (though I've never seen McGann, Eccleston or McCoy).
