As mentioned previously, here are some photos from my recent trip to Cardiff.
If you hate other peoples holiday pictures, or Doctor Who, better head off for a cup of tea or something. Seriously.
The Doctor Who exhibition was great fun. It's not particularly big, but it is very well laid out so it takes a while to get through it, and they give you a clipboard with a quiz* on it to make sure you read all the information about each exhibit.
Anyhoo, there was the Tardis, rotating on a plinth, hence the wonky angle.
There was K-9. Aaaah. Memories of my wasted youth.
There were the horrible aliens who ran on clockwork, no idea what they were called. Sorry.
There was a Dalek. This was actually quite scary in real life, probably because it looked exactly like they do on TV, rather than just a costume worn by someone.
If you were wondering what those little knobbly things are in front of the Dalek...
Of course! Terracotta Daleks. For taking with it to the next world, one assumes.
There was a Cyberman. This bit was good because they were playing a VERY LOUD recording of the "clong clong Cybermen walking around" noise. Brrrr.
I saw this rather charming statue of a dog in the Bay area. Isn't he lifelike?
So, why, why, does the dog in this sign just round the corner look nothing like any kind of dog whatsoever?
And what has it been eating?
It's crapping firewood!
Get it to the vet, someone!
Plus, now you know the Welsh for No Dog Crap, which is bound to come in handy at some point.
