Toys! Toys in the post! Which I justified on the basis of BRINGING ME JOY, also they were quite cheap. So I now have an Eleventy WITH A FEZ and an Idris. And Eleventy has a mop. Probably he will be fighting ironside!Dalek with that.

Anyway, they are great, if SLIGHTLY WEIRD: why does Idris come with a bag of goo and a wee mask so I can make an Idris Flesh mask? What is the reasoning there? Also the Pandorica part that Eleventy comes with IS NOT A PANDORICA PART AT ALL. It is a CD and case DISGUISED to look like a Pandorica. Which is a bit annoying because I rather like the idea of a plastic box Pandorica but not the idea of one made out of disguised CDs. But what is on this CD? you might ask, quite reasonably. Well, it's either Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters, Doctor Who and the Auton Invasion or Doctor Who and the Giant Robot. And you only get part one or two, so if you want to hear the whole story you have to buy another figure. Or you could just get the Target book for a quid, second-hand. Or better yet, just watch the story cause they're all excellent and why am I getting audio Target versions of Pertwee and Tom Baker stories with my Eleventy and a fez? It appears to be a Really Unsubtle Ploy to try and encourage kids to buy classic Who tat, because, let's face it, it's not the ten year olds who are all a-glee at the prospect of a Mechanoid figure. Couldn't they just have tempted them with MORE PLASTIC ACCESSORIES instead?

That sounds a bit sarcastic, but I do love the wee plastic accessories, even if I did almost hoover up Six's sonic lance last week. It was a very tense moment.

In non-Doctor Who toy related news, I got sod all work done today because I decided to listen to Cabin Pressure, which is a BBC Radio 4 comedy show about an airlinedot and stars Stephanie Cole and Benedict Cumberbatch and Roger Allam and if you actually intend to get Anything At All done, it's really not suitable for background listening, but it is bloody brilliant and everyone should listen to it and love it or they're just wrong.

We need a picture of all of your toys stacked together...

Yeah - all of them!

You really, really don't. Mostly cause I would be Terribly Embarrassed. I am, however, proud to day I don't own a destroyed Cassandra.

See I don't own any toys so I live vicariously thorough other people's toys. :)

I finally got around to listening to Cabin pressure a few months ago -- sadly, only s1 and s2, since I haven't been able to lay hands on s3 yet, legally or otherwise. And I keep checking. The episodes were just the right length for my commute, so I could listen to an episode driving to or from work.

Cabin Pressure! Oh, it's just brilliant and I tried to clean and listen at the same time but I just ended up laying on my bed laughing my head off while my room continued to dissolve into entropy.
