The Adventures of Mini-Doctor

The Adventures of Mini-Doctor in London, Paris and Cardiff

The Mini-Doctor accompanied his companions to London, Paris and Cardiff in April/May 2009.

The Mini-Doctor prepares to fly to London from Toronto aboard a primitive aircraft. The TARDIS seems to be missing.

Mini-Doctor is amazed that Air Canada feeds everybody as soon as the plane is in the air ... even if it's midnight (Eastern).

Air Canada wants to make the Mini-Doc fat. Breakfast is served!

First stop in London is Portobello Road market to find some magic bedknobs. Alas, there were none to be found.

An evening walking around Camden Lock.

A red telephone box... not a blue police box. Darn.

The Doctor stops for a photo op at Big Ben.

Mini-Doctor stands in the middle of Westminster Bridge for yet another photo op. The bridge and many of the nearby roads were closed off to vehicular transportation due to the London Marathon.

The Doctor stands near the London Eye -- or is it an Auton communication device???

Forget about the Autons, it's time for tea at the National Gallery Dining Room. Finger sandwiches, cakes and scones is the perfect way to end an afternoon of walking around London.

After tea, the Doctor steps across the street to Canada House in Trafalgar Square.

A walk down the closed street of Whitehall (still closed because of the marathon) finds the Doctor at the Household Cavalry.

The Doctor takes an opportunity to ride on the London Eye just before sunset.

Big Ben and the Parliament buildings look very small to the even smaller Mini-Doctor from high atop of the London Eye.

The Doctor visits Tower Bridge on a rainy day.

The Mini-Doctor is trapped in the Tower of London!

Out in the rain, the Mini-Doctor contemplates whether he ever met Henry VIII. The Tower of London's exhibit on Henry VIII and his armour was quite interesting.

Outside St. Paul's Cathedral.

The Mini-Doctor standing outside of St. Paul's Cathedral. This is where his companions wished they had brought a Mini-Cyberman with them! (The Mini-Doctor is slighly miffed at his companions for that thought.)

The Doctor on the Millenium Bridge, approaching the Tate Modern... the former Bankside Power Station. It was designed by the same architect as the Battersea Power Station or as we know it: the place where people got renovated into Cybermen on "Pete's World".

Having lunch at the Swan, near the Globe Theatre.

The Mini-Doctor visits Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and was fortunate enough to watch a rehearsal of Romeo and Juliette ... coincidentally he watched from where the Carrionite witches sat.

The Doctor reads a London rag.

The Doctor takes in the Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle.

St George's Chapel provides the background for the Doctor.

Still at Windsor Castle.

The Mini-Doctor enjoys a day at the Roman Baths in .. Bath.

A visit to the UK would not be complete without a visit to Stonehenge.

Just can't get enough of the circle of stones.

The Doctor visits Buckingham Palace while the Queen is in residence. He was a bit miffed that he didn't get an invitation in considering how he stopped a big cruise liner of a spaceship from crashing into the Palace.

At one of the markets near Camden Lock. That's one big nostril.

At St. Pancras Station waiting for the Eurostar train to Paris.

The Doctor's own Eurostar ticket.

The Doctor arrives in Paris and near his hotel, in the La Defense district, stands in front of La Grande Arche. A monument dedicated to humanity and humanitarian ideas, instead of military victories, this monument is huge and is part of the Axe Historique.

The Doctor surveys the mass of traffic at the Arc de Triomphe

Across the Seine, the Eiffel Tower looms above the Mini-Doctor.

Taking another photo opportunity in front of the Eiffel Tower.

The Mini-Doctor avoids gypsies and manages a photo in front of Notre Dame. No sign of Quasimodo.

The Doctor holds the lunch bill and tries to stop himself from exclaiming, "Blimey, that's expensive soup!" in a little cafe near Notre Dame.

The church at Les Invalides where Napoleon's tomb resides. The Doctor racks his brain trying to remember if he met Napoleon but is pretty sure that Bill and Ted did ...

After a short plane ride, the Doctor finds himself in Cardiff in front of Cardiff Castle.

The Doctor remembers this place... the Millenium Centre and the rift!

Standing in front of the great Millenium Centre, the Doctor wonders where Captain Jack is and where is his TARDIS. He thought he left it here.

The Doctor stands where he last saw Captain Jack.

Oooooh, an exhibit dedicated to the Doctor (Maxi-Doctor not Mini-Doctor).

FINALLY, the TARDIS. Alas, Mini-Doctor needs a bit of help for the photo.

After looking at himself at the Doctor Who exhibit, the Mini-Doctor decides to sightsee something more cultural and heads to Cardiff Castle. Here he stands in front of some Welsh dragons.

Standing below the Norman keep at Cardiff Castle.

The Doctor stands near the stone circle in Gorsedd Gardens, near City Hall and the National Museum of Wales. The stones are relatively new since they were put there at the turn of the 20th century.

Enjoying the sights and smells of Cardiff Bay.

There was something appealing and curious about having Chinese dim sum in Cardiff. The Mini-Doctor stands amongst the food at the Ba Orient Cocktail and Dim Sum Bar at Cardiff Bay.

The End
