Urgh. I wish that time travel would hurry up and be invented.
In the meantime, I’ve comprised a list of things I’d like to travel back/forward in time to:
Bowie circa Ziggy Stardust
Elliott Smith playing live
Any number of man-made distasters so that I could try and save people (Chernobyl/Titanic etc)
Some time in the late 90s so that I could invent the iPod
To go and see all of the 7 wonders of the ancient world before they were lost.
Before I started doing a university degree that I hate, so I could tell myself not to.
The French Revolution.
When humans take a real step into space travel.
It is a sad thought, when you realise at 20, that time travel is unlikely to be invented in your lifetime (if ever). I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed that someone from the future comes to visit me and takes me in their time machine.
Developed in association with Doctor Who’s Executive Producer and show runner, Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Live promises the same excitement, adventure and suspense that viewers have come to expect from the TV programme and will feature specially filmed new video scenes.
Opening in wartime London and concluding in an epic onstage battle, audiences should expect the unexpected as the The Doctor’s arch-enemies the Daleks are joined by some of the best-loved and most terrifying monsters from the TV series including the Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Judoon and Oods to name but a few. With an out-of-this-world set, Doctor Who Live will feature special FX, optical illusions and spectacular pyrotechnics building to an epic finale. Specially edited video clips, drawn from the TV Programme will be shown on a massive screen and accompanied by the music of longtime Doctor Who composer Murray Gold. These iconic scores will be brought to life by a 16 piece orchestra live on stage. Actors from the TV series will not be appearing live on stage.

Once you get over the obvious gargantuan money making aspect of this, it is pretty exciting…I know I’ll be going anyway.
