Congratulations to the team behind the TARDIS garden on display at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – NewsWales.co.uk reports that their creation on a silver gilt medal – not bad for Cardiff Council’s first entry!
It is the first time that Cardiff Council has exhibited at the show and A Garden in Time which was created by the Council Landscape Officer Mo Dorken and her team features a life-size Tardis with lights and familiar sound effects as its centerpiece.
On one side of the Tardis is a typical garden from the 1960s when Doctor Who first came to our screens, and on the other a contemporary Cardiff garden. The display also features a few subtle artifacts around the garden, including a 1960s Cardiff rugby shirt, a modern Doctor Who figure, and a 1960s Doctor Who annual, with William Hartnell on the cover.
If you fancy displaying your regard of David Tennant, Freema Agyeman, Torchwood and a selection of other shows and actors and actresses in the TV Choice Awards, click the link and head on over there. But be warned – there is some chaff to get through, and wading through talent shows and reality shows, and voting for Not Going Out in the sitcom category when you know that Extras is going to win anyway is a little sould-destroying. So look on it as backing Freema after yesterday’s erroneous report in the Sun.
Finally, it’s half-term week for many schools across Britain, and in Bridlington in particular there is a Doctor Who themed event at the North Bridlington library, reports who else but Bridlington Today
…The highlight of the week will be a visit from Dale Ibbetson, who starred in the Dr Who audio series.
Library supervisor Paul Hughes-Buchanan said: “We try to have activities and events during the holidays so we had a brainstorming session and thought ‘what are we going to do this half-term?’ A lot of people here like Dr Who and it just grew from there.
“A lady who works here called Alex Robinson has a husband Al who is a real enthusiast and he has a lot of models. He helped us produce a quiz and David Roberts, who works at the library and took promotional photos of a dalek and cyberman outside the library, knows Dale Ibbetson.
The article lists several events throughout the week, and even if you don’t live in Bridlington, it’s worth reading the article in full for the pun-tastic headline!
