You're An Action Figure
Not been up to The Smoke with the family
for a while.
Much pre-planning (the day before) meant we had reserved seats on the loco and
knew precisely which bus to catch -- no. 26 from stop L -- to take us to the
Bridge of Abba. Seated on the top deck, we expressly made our way along Fleet
Street and past St Paul's, then hopped off and down to the riverside.
Don't remember the Eye capsules being swept with metal detectors last time. Good chance to take in some Dr Who locations for The Boy:
- there's the clock tower (BB) that's hit by the Slitheen spaceship ("Aliens Of London")
- in the distance is Lumic's Cyberman factory at Battersea ("The Age Of Steel")
- and somewhere down there is home to the Nestene Consciousness ("Rose")
Come on kids, you can't be tired yet? Tubed it and walked a v. long tunnel all the way to a busy busy Science Museum. Paid our money to do the Pixar expo: pricey but well worth it. Lots of incredible Incredible designs, plus a stunning original 10 minute film taking a tour through some production sketches, and then there's the zoetrope. It's amazing: read the reviews.
And back on another punctual train in more seats of our own. Top day.
