Her answer went up on The Blue Corner a while back. Here ’tis.

Meantime if’n you want to have a crack at answering the same Q, please leave a comment or get in touch via email like the older folks do.

"Hello! I'm The Doctor and this is my friend Ace. We heard the tea was getting cold." My birthday present to myself came in the post today. We're back!
