VIE-CAP: The Woman Who Fell To Earth

I went into yesterday’s premiere of Doctor Who with no preconceived notions, other than that I continue to believe that Peter Capaldi got the short end of the script stick and any attempts by the series’ own network to paint him as the reason for a progressive drop in viewership as grossly unfair. As for […]

The 2018 Con Season Begins

It has been far too long since I last posted here, so this is more of a catch up blog than speaking to anything specific. What were we doing? What were we wearing? What did we buy? The fourth Cornwall and Area Pop Event (CAPE) was held last weekend at the city’s Benson Centre. An […]

Mine was fantastic. I finally found a French Taunter Pop! Vinyl figure to complete my Monty Python […]
