Nice old costume from Banshee. I had forgotten that particular monster with research an Alpha Centauran I think. There are hundreds to choose from. Looking forward to November for the big episode. big_smile

Correctamundo..... Ambassador Alpha Centauri.  I thought about Arcturus, but he looked naff, even by BBC standards, and already done Ice Warriors, so, it was either Alpha Centauri or Aggedor. Methinks this could be an off-topic thread.

"Are you my mummy?"  Maybe just me, but of the recent "creations", I thought The Empty Child had a slight edge on the Weeping Angels. Mind, as a youngster, after seeing the Autons come crashing out the shop windows, I could never walk past a department store too quickly!

Now, whatever you do...don't Blink!!

Your thread about BBC4's Blues show is still on front page; its news worth mentioning twice.

Glad you like the avatar - you wanted an angel, you got one! Remember, "Don't blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back; don't look away. And don't Blink. Good luck."
