  • 'Power of the Daleks' is supposedly being animated. Probably best to take a grain of salt with this: this claim comes from the Mirror, the same paper that once confidently predicted the Ninth Doctor would be played by Sean Bean.

  • Mark Carne, the chief of Network Rail, thinks Victorian railway architecture is of much higher quality than the 'shoddy workmanship' of the 1960s, full of asbestos and dodgy concrete (paywalled, requires a Times subscription). Mr Adamant would doubtless nod approvingly. Though, to be fair to the 1960s, Victorian railway architecture wasn't immune from jerrybuilding; after 115+ years, you'd expect to be left with the more robust bits.

    Now, if Network Rail are in the mood for sensitive treatment of heritage, and since Euston's got to be rebuilt for HS2, how about reinstating that arch?
