Triumph of a Time Lord

I had dinner with friends last night and they introduced me to Marmite and cheddar sausages, which has changed my life significantly for the better.

More importantly, their nine-year-old daughter popped off to her room in the middle of the meal and returned wearing rainbow braces, because she is currently the 13th Doctor.

Unlike most people, she was delighted to discover that she was in the company of a massive nerd and admired my rendition of EX-TER-MI-NATE!

"Do you remember when there was a man made of sweets and everyone had to be happy?" she asked, describing an adventure she'd read about in her annual which I identified as (of course) The Happiness Patrol.

We discussed our favourite episodes from the series just finished, and she asked me why the Dalek in the New Year special was an octopus, whereupon I launched into the history of Skaro, the Kaleds and Davros.

Doctor Who is clearly doing something very right indeed.

This is wonderful to hear! ♥
When it was time for her to go to bed her dad gave her a big hug and said "You're my favourite Time Lord." I almost cried.
Must admit Resolution didn't overly engage me (though Chibbers had clearly seen Venom while scripting) however it is entirely possibly my opinion was invalid as I was wee bit tipsy from a few post NYE beers.
It was a bit Who-by-numbers but there was lots I enjoyed about it, with some funny moments and a couple of genuine scares.
I will have to rewatch sober lol.

I watched The Happiness Patrol not so long ago with Heather (mostly to prove Fifi was used in Space Vets) and I am surprised at the hate it gets and that the Kandyman is rather a small character in the story.
FIFI WAS IN SPACE VETS!?

I'd like to rewatch it; I found it impressively scary at the time.
If memory serves. Though I think the prop was slightly altered.

"(Marmite and cheddar) sausages", or "Marmite and (cheddar sausages)"?

(I'd probably prefer the latter, myself.)
Ah, yes, that was ambiguous! The former!
What a lovely and encouraging anecdote :)
I've heard several similar stories and it's so lovely!
