Brown paper packages!
I love mail order. So today, one of my orders came in the mail. At first, I couldn't remember what it was (that's how bad I am at ordering stuff... I sometimes order so much I forget what I've ordered) but then I recalled my Amazon.co.uk order. Ooooh! New audio book read by Sylv! Yay! So now I have Let's Do the Pharaoh to listen to. (No, it's not a dirty book, it's a kid's book!) Also in the order is the much postponed A Very Peculiar Practice, the very funny, often surreal series that Peter Davison was in with Graham Crowden and David Troughton. And I also got the Dalek boxed set - 2 audio versions of Doctor Who stories long since lost to us in video format and a radio documentary. So plenty of aural entertainment (and some visual) for trina! Let's hear it for Mail Order!

Current Mood: happy happy
Current Music: "Getting to Know You {From the King and I}" by Julie Andrews

Oh! If you got your AVPP, mine will probably be there when I get home tonight. Cool!

Wow - I didn't figure you for ordering that series, Elsa. I didn't even think you liked that Davidson guy... ;-)

Yeah. I thought you'd kicked him to the curb. :)

Sounds great! I fear I would not be able to follow what goes on in the audios - following what they're saying on my video tapes is hard enough! But it sounds marvellous. :) Yay!

I'm hard of hearing (though really only in my left ear) so I do sometimes struggle to hear some audios*. However, with a good CD or MP3 player and earphones and a quiet place to work (or laying in bed) I can really enjoy the stories. Some of the BBC audios of the televised series are very good (Dalek Invasion of Earth was a lot of fun) and some show that the classic really ain't all it's rumored to be (Abominable Snowmen anyone?) For audios written with intention to be audios, Big Finish is the main supplier, though I absolutely adore the BBC's Death Comes to Time.

*If you think it's bad understanding BBC audios, just try listening to Sylvester McCoy speaking in a Doctor Who! ;-)
