In 2013, I made a film about the Dambusters, called WHAT THE DAMBUSTERS DID NEXT. You see, after the Dams raid, there were two more years of war left - and lots of Nazi Battleships and Secret weapons to smash. It's on Channel 5 at 9pm this Monday (May 26th) - watch it!

Date 29: The Girlfriend and the Happy ending
But…but…what about the  text message to the Doctor  explaining you were seeing someone? Oh, alright, I suppose I should tell you what happened. In between Date 24 and Date 25, I got a message through OK Cupid.  Now, this isn’t unusual – I haven’t actually c...
“I appreciate the paradox in sending someone a message to confirm that I'm not harassing them but I was telling a friend about your blog (recommending if that gives me any credit). Once she'd stopped laughing we decided to see if we could find your dating profiles and it was much easier than ...
