I promise I've not just been sitting around pondering. I've been busy, busy busy.
After my last blog on Haiti, I thought it only fair that someone on the inside had a chance to respond so am fixing that up; I've interviewed a courageous and passionate beach resident who will feature in a series of blogs leading up to Remembrance Day; and last but not least, I've got a date with Dr Who. Not the recently deceased Tenth Doctor, but the very proper and slightly bewildered Fifth Doctor.
Big Finish, an audio-book company have put out a call to new writers for an original adventure starring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa, his assistant. So for the last few days I've been poring over clips of Tom Baker and Peter Davidson slaying monsters and defying death. Now it's time to stop watching and leap into the fray.
So, with reluctance, I bid farewell to this serene day on Shoreham Beach and set off for an intergalatic war between the brilliant Cytons and the deadly Hudogs.
Wish me luck.
