Lucky creature - the combined squee of Toby, Hattie and Fenella is going to be amazing!

Speaking of squee, I need to fix the filters on my squee-dar to pick up fantastic things like Toby and Alex being marvellous on the radio. My squee-dar has been overrun by squee regarding the return of Doctor Who this week. squee!

Squee-dar sounds fabulous, where can I get one?

Doctor Who is indeed squeelicious.

The R4 Toby and Alex play was good.

Fabulous squeeing people have in-built squee-dar. For example, I think you use your squee-dar to choose the squee-est pictures for your picspams :D

Have recorded the Alex and Toby play; will listen to it soon.

Am very impatient for the Doctor Who squeeliciousness this weekend, aargh!
