Yes, yes, yes, one knows that it is a long way off but Xmas has already arrived in all the shop windows on the streets of Londinium. Even McSpigget’s wants one to book early for their Xmas Xtravaganza! Harrumph! Monsieur Marcel is selling “Marcel’s Cheesy Bits” in festive wrapping. However the title does somewhat put one off! One will let him keep his bits to himself.
One may have noticed that your Doctor has a wish list of places that he would like to visit. It can be seen as a link up there on the menu along with other items of interest. Maybe there are some of you out there that have visited these fine eateries already and can comment? Possibly you believe that one is missing out and should add something to the wish list…In any case , one has set out the current list below. No complaints please for those not in Londinium. After all your dear Doctor does live in London. However, one can always make some suggestions for the Doctor’s next grand tour.
