Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

Are Daleks and the back of the Sofa really no longer synonymous?

A win for Dunfermline against the Jags, and away from home as well and--- Dr Who is back. Its been a good day today!

There is something quite wonderful seeing my lad as excited as I ever was at the sound of the Dr Who theme tune. I really did hide behind the sofa (who was that comedian who said "we were too poor to watch Dr Who because we couldn't afford a sofa to hide behind?) but whilst he really likes the show, he is not so scared. Are the shows less scary or is it just because the Daleks are no longer so out of the ordinary in the average school-kids experience of scary monsters? Has Harry Potter or Nintendo 2 made Daleks and Cybermen second division scary?
