Log Cabin in Newfoundland, Canada.
Submitted by Troy Holloway.
I’ve been dying to move to Newfoundland ever since I found out that, all within a short distance of each other, there are towns named “Butts,” “Gander,” and “Gambo.” I can only pray that this cabin is in that vicinity and that I can live there until the end of my days.
This is rather lovely. Bernard Cribbins, who of course you’ll recognise as Donna Noble’s grandad Wilf from Doctor Who, is starring in a new TV show called Old Jack’s Boat, on the BBC children’s channel CBeebies.
The show revolves around a fisherman, his pet Salty Dog, and the stories he tells, and also stars (among other people) fellow-Who graduate Freema Agyeman. Bernard is no stranger to children’s TV, having narrated and appeared in all sorts of children’s shows, from The Wombles (a ’70s animated smash hit, that actually got revived in the late ’90s), to The Railway Children.
But in his latest show, the one thing the production team are always on the lookout for are stories. And having been taken back into the Doctor Who family by Russell T Davies, Bernard knew just the fella to ask.
THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FAVORITE THING. There is a character called “Miss Bowline-Hitch.” Also Wilf & Salty Dog and oh my stars.
