  1. So according to the latest episode, among other things, the Doctor is a doctor of LEGO. Did you think she get her degree at the University of Billund?
  2. I've only recently emerged from the Dark Ages but I was able to give advice to a woman who, on a whim, fancied getting some LEGO bricks and was trying to decided between the Creative Suitcase and the Large Creative Brick Box.

    What got you into collecting Lego as an Adult?

    At the end of 2013 I was in Sydney for a business trip. I've always been fascinated by the Sydney Opera House so it was a must see on my itinerary. In the gift shop, they had the Creator Export model and I was absolutely blown away by it. I'd been away from LEGO since the early 80s, so I had no that sets like this existed. At the time I couldn't afford to buy it but over the next 12 months I kept itching to get one. Eventually I decided to treat myself to it as a Christmas present. I will not tell a lie that as I unboxed it on December 25th I felt a pang of excitement I've not felt on a Christmas morning since childhood. Since then I've been hooked, spending all my spare cash on this highly sophisticated interlocking brick system. I cry a little when I work out how much this new hobby is costing me. I think I can moderate my spending but then they go and release LEGO Dimensions with Doctor Who and Portal 2! Sometimes it's like they design these sets specifically for me.
