The papier-mache puppet of the Beadle from Oliver Twist that my eldest brother made at school — to this day I am convinced he dug it up somewhere.

Dr. Who — “Fury From The Deep”, April 1968. This wasn’t about hiding from the Daleks behind the sofa, this was about killer seaweed that moved along pipes. I was convinced this stuff would find it’s way up to the toilet bowl…
