What’s the use of a good quote if you can’t change it?
- Colin Baker
Me: Wow. Just… Wow.
Him: I don’t know what to say.
Me: That was superb. What a treat.
Me: I’m feeling worryingly upbeat at the moment.
Him: Right. Any particular reason?
Me: Just that… I think we’ve been very lucky this weekend. I can remember watching Dimensions in Time when it went out.
Him: Did you think it was good as Dimensions in Time?
Me: What, The Five-Ish Doctors?
Me: I thought it was quite a bit better than Dimensions in Time.
Me: In fact… Yeah. Beautifully done. What a treat.
Me: “Wik lint usal, Mr Davison.”
Him: That’s not it.

Him: It’s in Volume Two, yeah?
Me: It… Is.
Him: “Dish of the Day.” Got it. “w-i-k-Capital I-n-t –u-s-u-l”. The final l’s a capital.
Me: Shall I just put a photo in?
Him: If you like.
