Well that was just stunning! Beautiful and moving and caring and touching. OK the monster story wasn’t up to much but this was about monsters of another kind. Those internal, terrible demons that afflict a fair few of us at one time or other in our lives. Those monsters which try to suck the very joy from our lives, try to make us stay in bed and forget the beauty of the world around outside. And it’s here that the focus of the story really is – how our own humanity and sense of beauty and worth can help us combat these things.

The computer game, which was introduced as "The Doctor Who Adventures" earlier this year has now been released. There are a couple of sore points, 1: IT IS AS WE EXPECTED GEO-LOCKED, that means if you are not resident in the UK you can't access it. 2: WINDOWS VERSION ONLY, the Mac version is due on the 15th of July. and most Importantly 3: IT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD, but your going to have to lay out your hard earned cash for it. I suspected this part but as the BBC now has to show responsibilty for it's earnings since the change of government in the UK this was no surprise to me.
