I don't know about anyone else but when I find out someone I've known is doing something ace, I get disproportionately excited. In the early hours one morning, me and the boys were on the Dr Who website, checking out Daleks (like you do at 7am) and there was David Hankinson: Dalek Operator. Looking just like he did, way back, when he worked with us (in Leicestershire). I know it's really unlikely that anyone reading this knows anyone on the Dr Who production team but if you do, say "Hi" to David (the old pervert*).
We also found out how to make a Dalek cake.
