We revisited the end of the Earth today.
The Lad (aged six) and I were reading Beowulf over lunch. Not my choice; the lad is drawn to it. He suddenly stopped me, starting to look upset.
After much to-ing and fro-ing, we eventually decided to let the Lad watch some New Doctor.
“Everyone’s frightened of something different,” was part of my rationale.
Partner is freaked out by supernatural and ghostly stuff, like The Empty Child. For me, the Daleks do it. “Who knows what the Lad’s triggers are?,” we said, “Monsters, aliens, Daleks – it could be anything. We’ll just be there for him, and have fun.”
So we did, and he OMGloved the first episode.
Anyway, now that the first episode of Doctor Who’s Season 4 has aired here in Oz, it’s time again for: Marry, Shag or chuck off a Cliff? As usual, you may match one and only one of the characters below to each fate.
