The rain in Spain actually falls mainly on Scotland

So I’m in Scotland again. Edinburgh this time. Technically, right now I should actually be in the air above Scotland since my plane should have taken off about five minutes ago. Instead, I’m still in Edinburgh airport, clocking up time on a BT Openzone WiFi rip-off scheme. Why?

Edinburgh Airport

Because it’s absolutely pissing it down with rain in Scotland again. QFS. So now my plane is now going to lift into the sky at 22:12 apparently and land in London at about half eleven. Next – and last – train to London Bridge is at 12.15. Sigh.

To save me from night bus and train horrors, my lovely wife who is both lovely and lovely is going to pick me up from Gatwick. She is indeed a wonderful wife.

But that means no proper review of Doctor Who today. No finales guide. Just a rainy picture of Edinburgh airport.

Actually, I’m feeling kind. Since I’ve been bleating on about how House has the wrong theme tune in the UK for ages now, I thought I’d treat you to the proper title sequence. This is how it should look and sound – notice just how perfectly the music suits the titles in exactly the way the lift music they use over here doesn’t. Time to start a campaign, everyone.
