Presumably Rory's wife on the way back from the tanning salon... After all, it is not like they are holidaying on alien planets any more, she's got to top up her tan somehow - and she might be one of those redheads which unaccountably object to freckling...
It's time to play the Christmas Train Diversion Game!
I have to admit that it's a rather poor effort from GWR when a blockade east of Reading meant our HST made a reverse at Reading followed by another at Basingstoke and then a very rare visit to London Waterloo.
This year they're turning train short of Paddington at Ealing. Now this isn't a bad thing and we'd have done it anyway cos HST's don't normally call there. But Ealing is the starting point for the 65 bus which will take us all the way to Kingston! We get to go past several Spearhead from Space locations, including where the Autons burst through the window and the dept store in Monty Python's buying a bed sketch, Ealing Film studios, used in many a DW and outside of which the Moonbase Cybermen queued for a 65 and Kew Bridge Steam Museum, the site of 76 Trotter's Lane in Rememberance of the Daleks
In theory it should be an easier trip than usual. 1 train, no changes, shorter journey time, same number of buses albeit with an extra amount of time on the first.
