Ex-Shhh!-Minate

There will be silence in the library come 13th November. The despot dustbins, the Daleks will be issuing tomes of fear and returning extermination on any users with late books as the seize control of the Central Library, Swindon,  Wiltshire.

While holding literature to ransom the fiends will also be judging a Dalek colouring competition (1st Prize: that person gets to live) in the morning and a sci-si dressing up competition for children in the afternoon (1st Prize: that person gets to fight the winner of the previous competition to then see who lives.)

Local childrens sci-si author and non-Dalek David Johnson (Crystal Quest) will be teaching writers workshops throughout the day; no doubt designed to make sure those suicide notes/last wills and testaments are razor sharp and spelling error free.

The event also sees the return of the Central Library Doctor Who Reading and Listening challenge – where particpants aged 17 or under are asked to read or listen to four Doctor Who titles from their local libraries (two must be audiobooks) – from now until the 30th November.

Those that complete the challenge will then be entered into a prize draw (1st Prize: A weekend in Eastbourne with Davros – who I’m told is very fond of the Banoffi Pie.)

The event runs from 10am until 3pm.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
