Superheroes at the V&A Museum of Childhood

You’ve probably seen my recent post about various objects that have been confiscated from school-kids on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood. If you haven’t, I can wait patiently whilst you check it out, it’ll only take a minute or two… Back already, my, that was quick! Now, that display is in the foyer, and…

The Doctor: A Re-Discovery

I’ve been going through some old photos on my phone recently. As you can imagine, there are snaps from all sorts of museums that I have visited on my Adventures.

Doctor Who in Comics: 1964-2011

 This review first appeared on the Kids in Museums site in 2011 in the days before I had a blog. I thought I’d re-publish it over here so no one misses out.

One Man and His (Robot) Dog

As part of their quaint but quirky Doctor Who in Comics exhibit, the Cartoon Museum had an extra special visitor today; a Time Lord’s best friend, the one, the only… K9! “Hang on a minute…” I hear you ask, “Didn’t you see K9 recently? There was a picture when you were at that robot thing,…
