Project Indigo

One boy’s adventure through time and space!

Hi, I’m Tom, a local Doctor Who blogger & I write about my adventures online at

Project Indigo is my blog where I travel the world visiting people and places associated with
Doctor Who. This summer I went to Beaulieu Motor Museum in the New Forest to see a
special new addition. My last visit to Beaulieu was Quizfest in August 2017 but the following
month The Doctor’s car Bessie was introduced to the
On Screen Cars display! Bessie is a star attraction
alongside other cars from film and TV including Ron’s
Ford Anglia from Harry Potter, Mr Bean’s yellow Mini
and Del Boy’s Robin Reliant.

Bessie was the Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee’s, car and he
named her after his companion Liz Shaw. She is a 1954
Ford Popular 103E fitted with a kit by Siva to replicate
an Edwardian roadster. The Doctor needed her to get
around after he was exiled on earth by the Time Lords
and his TARDIS was deactivated. While earthbound,
the Doctor worked as a Scientific Adviser for UNIT and
Bessie was part of his compensation package.
The Doctor added lots of special features to Bessie including an Anti-Theft Force Field, a
Remote control to drive her from a distance and a Minimum Inertia Hyper Drive which let
him brake suddenly at high-speed without going through the windscreen!

The Doctor also gave Bessie his personal licence plate ‘WHO 1’.
Really, this plate was already in use, so Bessie’s actual number
plate was MTR 5. The BBC made special ‘WHO 1’ plates, and used
them on private land. They had to get permission from the police
to use them for filming on public roads. When the Seventh Doctor
drove her, her plate was updated to WHO 8 but she is on display
with her original.

Bessie’s first appearance was in Season 7 of Classic Who in ‘Doctor
Who and the Silurians’ (1970) and she featured in 15 stories. After
the Third Doctor regenerated Bessie only popped up on screen for
special occasions. Her most recent onscreen appearance was the
Eleventh Doctor episode ‘The Name of the Doctor’ (2013) when we
see his companion Clara Oswald risk her life to save the Doctor by
jumping into his time stream.
Archive footage was used to show Clara trying to attract the
attention of the Third Doctor without success.

I had a fantastic day at Beaulieu. Not only did I get to learn lots about motoring through
the ages I also enjoyed the peace of the Abbey and learning about its 800 year history.
If you would like to read about my other Doctor Who adventures please check out my blog.

Thanks for reading, goodbye!

“Caring for your feet in the winter”

As we enter the colder, winter months,
it’s extremely important to keep ourselves
warm. To do this, we normally wear extra
clothes and gloves on our hands. But, it’s also
essential we keep our feet warm. One of the
most common problems which can occur
during colder weather are chilblains. These
are small, itchy swellings on the skin which
occur as a reaction to cold temperatures. In
this article, we will provide some information
on chilblains and how to prevent them.

Chilblains usually occur several hours after exposure
to the cold as a result of blood vessels narrowing and
widening too quickly. When this happens, blood can
leak into the surrounding tissue and this is believed to be
reason for the swelling and itchiness. In extreme cases,
the skin may break and blisters may develop. It is very
important to try not to scratch the area as the skin can
easily break, leading to a possible infection.

Fortunately, chilblains are quite easy to prevent as long
as you follow these tips. The obvious thing to do to
prevent chilblains is by limiting your exposure to the
cold. You can wear thick socks or long johns to improve
the circulation to the feet and try and avoid wearing
tight shoes as they can restrict the circulation. Warming
your shoes on the radiator before wearing them allows
them to dry and eating at least one hot meal a day has a
fantastic warming effect across the whole body. Finally,
moisturising your feet every day stops your feet from
becoming dry and prevents the skin from cracking.

If you have any concerns about your feet or would like to
know more about preventing chilblains, then please do
not hesitate to give us a ring and make an appointment.

Guinness World Record Day - 8th November

World Records aren’t set every day, but world records for new
types of things can be. Whether you’re trying to spend the most
time hovering a table tennis ball over your mouth (6.35 seconds is
the current record) or spend the longest time holding your breath
(22 minutes, held by Stig Severinsen) Guinness World Record
Day encourages you to stretch the bounds of human endurance
and creativity, and set that new world record!

History of Guinness World Record Day
In 1951 an argument was held between Sir Hugh Beaver and his fellow hunting mates in
North Slob in County Wexford, Ireland. What was the argument about you ask? Which
bird was the fastest game bird in Europe, of course. While we now know that the fastest
game bird is the plover, it cast light on an issue about available reference books. None
of them compared flight speeds of various birds, something we can’t imagine he was
terribly surprised by. This was something that Sir Hugh was determined to change, and
change it he did.
He got together with Norris and Ross McWhirter to create the first ever compilation
of records, well, everything they could get their hands on. So it was that the first 1000
copies of the Guinness Book of Records were printed in 1954. The book was hugely
successful, and thus the legacy that is the Guinness Book of World Records was born
and has continued to be reprinted every year, ever since. Guinness World Record Day
was established to give people a day to focus on challenging existing records or putting
forth a new record to be put into the books. That latter is for the truly ambitious, but it’s
entirely possible!

How to celebrate Guinness World Record Day
In fear of being redundant, one celebrates Guinness World Record Day by attempting
to break a world record! Some of them you won’t be able to do in one day, after all, one
such record is for the “Longest continually supported and updated Game”, an honour
which goes to the unique wilderness survival game Unreal World . You can also head
on over to Guinness World Records to find out what the latest records are, or just spend
some time looking up things like the fastest land mammal, or longest ping pong game
ever held!

Top Tips For Selling Your House

First Impression – This can be make or break. If a potential purchaser is put off before
the entering the front door then it’s over before its begun. Take a look at the outside of
your home as a stranger might see it. It might be winter and very wet but for a small
sum or some time and energy you could tidy the garden, paint your front door and get
a sale.

Tidy – Be obsessive about this, as it is a make or break to a prospective client. Our
advice is to have a seriously good clear out before you put the house on the market
– even if you bundle up your prized possessions and take them off site. Prospective
buyers want to see clean lines and uncluttered work surfaces that create a feeling of

Clean – Fresh, sparkling and inviting would be perfect. Hard to achieve when you
have an active life with pets and children, but the cleaner your house is the easier it is
to sell. If you cant face the task we can put you in touch with someone who will provide
a full deep clean for your home.

Bathrooms – Generally we don’t advise sellers to refit a bathroom prior to sale –
unless it is really ghastly. Do the obvious instead – re-grout, re-silicon, fluffy towels,
pleasant scent, clean and spotless please.

Kitchen – Spare a thought for the poor estate agent as you dash out of the house
without loading the dishwasher! We want to take pride in your house when we show
clients around and leftover breakfast is not the first thing they want to see as they enter
the kitchen.

Brief the agent – The more we are prepared to answer questions about your house
the easier it will be to sell it and allay any fears that prospective buyers may have.
As an estate agent we dislike not having the answers. And we particularly dislike not
knowing how your gadgetry works so please do show us how to use the iPad entry
system, the drop down cinema and the fancy lighting system. If we make it look easy
the clients will love it. If we don’t know how it works, then they won’t.

Odour – It may seem trivial but the aroma of your house is really very important when
you are selling. A simple diffuser discretely hidden in the hall could do the trick. Some
people proffer the advice of coffee and home baked bread but be realistic. It could
take a few weeks to sell your home and you cannot be there ready to turn on the bread
maker at the drop of a hat.

Animals – People’s pets are much loved by the owner but very often just the owner
and not necessarily the person that is going to buy the house. Pets also can have quite
a strong odour, not to mention the litter trays, food bowls and clutter that goes with
having an animal in the house. Try to keep pet evidence to a minimum.

Travel Feature - Getting away for Christmas ... By Mags Addison

Ever thought of taking a holiday break away from home over the
festive season? Well if you have, then you’d be amongst lots of
other Christmas evacuees! A general exodus at Christmas is now one
of the peak times in the travel trade calendar. But the escape is not
only abroad, or to warmer places – holidaying away from home in
the UK is also popular. No flights, no luggage restrictions.
An easy car drive, or train ride.
One thing you can be sure of, whether the break is at home, or abroad – it won’t be cheap.
The Christmas and New Year season are the absolute peak time to travel, and therefore it can be
expensive. And this is especially so if you head for most sunshine destinations. So you need to shop
around, or ask your travel agent to do it.
The choice of break you can take is enormous as well. Hotel breaks in the UK, rented cottages, or all-in
packages to hot spots aboard. There should be something for everyone, whether you are a couple, a
family, group of friends, or a single person looking for some company. Not everyone wants sunshine –
many head for the more traditional picture post card snowy peaks. And as Christmas is usually about snow,
so why not head for the northern climes of Europe.

Coach holidays have long been a popular choice. Europe, Scotland, city based venues in the UK, and
English seaside resorts are all well-liked.
Cruising is also fashionable – but book well in advance to get what you want – these sell very quickly
despite the cost. The Caribbean is the obvious choice here.

Thailand the Far East are also a must for lots of Brits. I have at least 2 different groups who are
travelling around the Far East from the end of November through to mid January.
Far flung places from Australia to South Africa also get booked out quickly. Again I have client’s flying in
both these directions in early December. Meeting up with family and friends is the main reason why a lot
of people make the long flights at such busy peak time. But many flee to places like the Caribbean just to
have their Christmas on a beach. For this reason the Canary Islands are also well booked.

Which ever way you do it, you have to be quick, because everything
gets booked up in advance. If you’d rather have the festive season
at home, than come Boxing Day the holiday adverts hit the TV – and
everybody wants to book something so they can go into 2019 with a
holiday, however, short or long, to look forward too.
Needless to say, it’s my busy booking period. And I love it.
January has a real buss of things to come with the new year starting.
Bring it on!

Beach holidays, City breaks, Honeymoons, Weddings abroad, Adventure holidays, Ski,
Cruise, Tailormade trips, Flight only, Car hire, Airport hotels and parking and much more...

Pet Medicine

1. Grasp your cat firmly in your arms. Cradle its head on your elbow, just as if you were giving a
baby a bottle. Coo confidently, “That’s a nice kitty.” Drop the pill in its mouth.
2. Retrieve your cat from the window sill and the pill from under sofa.
3. Follow the same procedure as in Step 1, but hold your cat’s front paws down with your left
hand and their back paws down with the elbow of your right arm. Poke the pill into its mouth
with your right forefinger.
4. Retrieve your cat from upstairs under the bed. Get a new pill from the bottle, (resist the
impulse to get new cat.)
5. Again proceed as in Step 1, except when you have your kitty cat firmly cradled in the bottle-
feeding position, sit on the edge of the chair, fold your torso over your cat, bring your right hand
over your left elbow, open your cat’s mouth by lifting the upper jaw & pop the pill in - quickly!
Since your head is down by your knees, you won’t be able to see what you are doing. That’s just
as well.
6. Leave your cat hanging on the curtains. Leave the pill in your hair.
7. If you are a woman, have a good cry. If you are a man, have a good cry.
8. This isn’t working, is it? Those flashing claws are causing the chaos. Crawl slowly to the
airing cupboard. Drag back a large beach towel. Spread the towel on the floor.
11. Retrieve your cat from the curtains and get another pill from the bottle.
12. Spread your cat on the towel near one end with its head over the long edge.
13. Flatten your cat’s front and back legs over its stomach. (resist the impulse to flatten your cat.)
14. Roll your cat in the towel. Work fast; time and tabbies wait for no man - or woman!
15. Resume position 1. Rotate your left hand to your cat’s head. Press its mouth at the jaw hinges
like opening the petals of a snapdragon.
16. Drop the pill into cat’s mouth and poke gently. Voila! It’s done!
17. Vacuum up the loose fur (cat’s). Apply bandages to the wounds (yours).
18. Take two aspirins, Lie down and try not to think about tomorrows pill !!

YMCA Bournemouth invites/challenges
community-minded local businesses to take part in
its biggest ever sponsored rough sleeping event

On the night of 17th November, directors and staff
from an expected 20+ businesses and organisations
across Dorset will be braving the cold on behalf of
YMCA Bournemouth to support ‘The BIG Sleep
Easy’ at The Bournemouth Sports Club (Chapel
Gate) near Bournemouth International Airport.

Fundraisers will wrap up warm, build shelters out of cardboard boxes, take part in fun challenges
and then sleep outside for the night, protected only by their sleeping bag, hot drinks and the
warm messages of those who’ve sponsored them. The event will take place in an enclosed area of
Bournemouth Sports Club from 6.45pm on Saturday to 8am on Sunday morning.
YMCA Bournemouth are inviting local businesses, groups and organisations to put their own
teams forward for the event, the purpose of which is to raise awareness of local homelessness and
essential funds to support the charity’s work.

Fundraising Manager, Martin Stockley, said: “We had such great feedback from our previous Sleep
Easy collaborations with Bournemouth University and Lytchett Minster School, we wanted to
open the opportunity up to the local business community, who we thought would also benefit from
the event’s team-building aspects, positive local community involvement and resulting impact.”
He added: “The aim is to raise at least £10,000 to go towards our work providing the support
that homeless individuals need to help them return to independent living and a positive long-term
future. We urge all employees to mention the event to their managers – it’s going to be a great
night out for all involved!”

Local businesses already putting teams forward include Altogether
Care, Corbin & Co and Make Studio, plus Dorset Chamber of
Commerce and Industry members ITSB, Keyfort and Lester
Aldridge. Managing Partner of Lester Aldridge solicitors, Matthew
Barrow, who will himself be sleeping ‘rough’ on the night on behalf
of the charity, said:
“We are delighted to be able to support our local community by
taking part in the YMCA Bournemouth BIG Sleep Easy event.
Homelessness is on the increase and local business support is vital
to making a difference. YMCA Bournemouth is an integral part of our local community and by
taking part in this event we are helping to change the social landscape in Bournemouth.”

If organisations would like to join other local businesses for a night under the stars this autumn
and make a real difference to people’s lives, they can request an information pack from
Martin Stockley on 07897 563 473 or [email protected]
Individual fundraisers are also very welcome to join in the fun!

The one constant thing, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic
background, is that, deep down, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Brain Power

1: Alex is a keen dog admirer and over the years has had a number of dogs.
Alex has had an Alsatian, a Dalmatian, a Poodle and a Great Dane, but not
necessarily in that order.
Alex had Jamie first. The Dalmatian was an adored pet before the Great
Dane. Sammy, the Alsatian, was the second dog Alex loved. Whitney was
housed before the Poodle and Jimmy was not a Great Dane.
Can you tell each of the dogs’ name and the order in which Alex had them?


How many squares, of any size, can you find on
this chess board which do not contain a Rook?

3: There are five gears connected in a row, the first one is connected to the
second one, the second one is connected to the third one, and so on.
How much faster would the last gear be if the second gear was twice the size
of the first gear, and all the other gears were the same size as the first gear?

4: There are three people (Alex, Brook and Cody), one of whom is a knight,
one a knave, and one a spy.
The knight always tells the truth, the knave always lies, and the spy can either
lie or tell the truth.
Alex says: “Cody is a knave.” - Brook says: “Alex is a knight.”

Cody says: “I am the spy.”
Who is the knight, who the knave, and who the spy?

5: At the Pet Show recently I noticed that all except two of the entries were
cats, all except two were dogs, and all except two were fish.
How many of each animal were at the Pet Show?

6: A man on a park bench is looking at a small portrait.

You ask him, “Who is that in the picture?”

The man says,

“Brothers and sisters I have none, but that man’s father is my father’s son.”

Can you tell what person is in the picture? Answers on page 44

There is no beating the taste of truly fresh
fruit and veg especially, when it’s yours!

November / December - Gardeners Tips

Wrap up when out in the garden or allotment. November can have some chilly days.
The good news is you will not be outside too long at this time of year.
Before it gets too cold, and the ground still has some warmth hedging and shrubs
should root readily even though the air feels cold to us.
1. This will definitely be your last chance to plant Spring flowering bulbs but it is the
best time to pot up or plant out some Tulip bulbs for next Spring.
2. Sow Sweet Peas either under glass in an unheated greenhouse or under a cloche. Do
remember to chit them first for improved results. My wife puts the seeds on a damp
kitchen towel in a takeaway tray, cover with another sheet of paper and put them in the
airing cupboard until the first little root appears before sowing.
3. Keep clearing any leaf fall, especially from ponds and lawns.
4. Lift any outside pots onto feet to prevent waterlogging & bubble wrap to insulate against any frosts.
5. Cover up any Brassicas to keep the Pigeons off.
6. Harvest any remaining fruit and vegetables, prune fruit trees when all leaves have fallen to rejuvenate
over winter.
7. Plant out your winter bedding. Sow Broad Beans, Peas, Asparagus, Garlic, Onions and winter lettuce.
8. Use grease bands or a Grease paint (you will need an old brush) around fruit trees to prevent Winter
Moth damage. I prefer the grease paint as the stickiness of the bands is so difficult to get off your hands.
9. Dig in some manure to empty vegetable and border areas to add fibre and goodness to the soil.
10. Isolate the outside tap, empty the garden hose, clean and store any unwashed plant pots.

Thankfully December is a quiet month in the garden. It can be cold and very wet but there are some
positive things we can do weather permitting.
• Support any larger shrubs and tall roses as they are particularly vulnerable to wind rock. The roots
can tear and reduce the plants’ potential for next year.
• Prune any overgrowing and congested branches of freestanding Apple and Pear trees to allow fruiting
buds to develop next year.
• Ensure your greenhouse heater is working if you have one. We have included a separate electronic
thermostat which only switches the electric heater on at our pre-set temperatures.
• Harvest Parsnips, Leeks, Winter Cabbage any remaining root crops and especially those long
anticipated sprouts.
• If you did not do it in November. Dig over borders and next years’ planting areas incorporating as
much organic material as possible all of which should rot down over the coming months. The birds will
love you for it as they pick up the grubs you have unearthed.
• Do ensure any outdoor pots are raised off the ground to avoid freezing and waterlogging.

• If you have a pond or water drinker for the birds do ensure it remains frost
free. If you have fish, never hit the ice with a hammer the shock can kill the fish.
Much better to place a floating object on the surface. This can be removed from
time to time to reveal an air hole.
• During the winter the wild life can find food gathering difficult so do provide
a variety of feed locations and variety for the different species. Remember the
ground feeders as well as the perching birds. There is a definite pecking order so space out the feeders to
give them all an even chance.
If you live in the Bournemouth Borough Council Tax area and would like to grow your own fresh fruit and
vegetables whilst keeping fit and healthy, then come and talk to us at North Bournemouth Allotments in
Cornelia Road, Wallisdown. We are open every Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 12.00 noon and you will
get a warm welcome from our very friendly group of volunteers.

Pupils put new SafeWise tours to the test

mouth Local charity SafeWise has joined forces with St Mary’s Primary School
in Wareham and Damory coaches to help develop new Junior Citizen tours
which are set to be rolled out to thousands of pupils from September.

St Mary’s is the last of five Dorset schools to trial and feedback on the new tours, which focus on

equipping children aged five to 11 with skills for life, at SafeWise centres in Bournemouth and Weymouth.

Year two pupils spent four hours at SafeWise Bournemouth’s indoor safety village testing out a range of

interactive scenarios based around fire, road and water safety plus healthy choices, online safety, journey

planning, first aid and more.

SafeWise Bournemouth Manager Elise St.Hill said: “I’d like to thank all the schools which have visited

to test out our new Junior Citizen programme, they have provided invaluable feedback which we will use

to fine tune the tours. “The Junior Citizen schools programme aims to provide realistic and immersive

learning experiences to equip children with the skills, knowledge and confidence to live active, fulfilling

and safer lives in the real world.

ifeDrive datesCarlea:ss Teacher Mr Leyman-Hobbs said: “The children have enjoyed a superb day at SafeWise.

“The new tour represents a really good step forward, such as the clever voting system, real car which the

children can get into as well as other situations where they recognise danger and deal with it. “It’s a nice,

secure environment for the children to learn in and all the helpers are really down to earth, so the pupils

feel confident asking questions and are not afraid to have a go and try different things around the centre.”
