Flight woe

My cunning plans to be back in Brussels by lunchtime today have been scuppered. The flight I was meant to be on to Manchester got cancelled, but they changed me to another flight via Birmingham which would actually have got me into Brussels a little earlier. Alas, the Birmingham flight was also delayed, to the point where I would have missed my connection there, so I got them to switch me to another flight via Heathrow (incidentally delying the Birmingham take-off still further while they took my bag off it). But the Heathrow flight is also running over an hour late, and while it looks like I will make the early afternoon connection to Brussels, I’ve had to alert colleagues to cover for me for a meeting with the Hague war crimes tribunal people this afternoon which I will now miss. Bah.

    I have to recommend the first episode of Androzani.

    In my adolescence, I drifted out of the habit of watching Doctor Who after Resurrection of the Daleks. This was poor timing, but I wasn’t to know this until some years later, when I came across a video tape on which was recorded only the first episode of Androzani. It’s a cracker all the way through, the cliffhanger is a genuine “how the hell do they get out of that?” moment. It was many, many years before I finally saw the rest of the story, but my interest was firmly captured by that first episode.
