Not for the first time since I’ve been living in London, I woke up unnecessarily early in the morning to go spend hours of my life at an event that will probably seem hilariously unimportant years from now. Or, maybe not. I don’t yet regret any of my silly decisions, who says that future-me will suddenly become less of a total dork? (Chances are I shall remain thusly nerdy for the whole of my existence in this dimension.)
Now to get to the good stuff: Whovians, beware. You may possibly implode in a fit of jealousy, because this chick went to the Forbidden Planet megastore on Shaftesbury Ave this morning and got a first-ever exclusive look at the new TARDIS speaker system that the Doctor Who merchandise team will soon be releasing upon the world. We got to watch a demonstration. And we got goody bags. And we got jammie dodgers and jelly babies. All for free, yo.And what was in those goody bags, you ask? A t-shirt, poster, and badge. Ooooh yeah, you’re now talkin’ to the proud owner of some fabulous free DW merch.
And just a warning to my fellow nerds, beware the Forbidden Planet stores - their extensive stock of all things dorky and obsession-worthy is dangerously tempting.
