It’s A Girl!

Congratulations from all here at downthetubes go to Richard and Alice Sheaf on the safe arrival of their baby daughter. As for her name, well there were plenty to choose from: Bunty, Debbie, Jackie, Jinty, Judy, June, Nikki, Sally, Tina, but instead they chose Zoe Laura.

New dad Richard, one of the dtb team, tells us, “it’s a baby girl, so I’m off to collect Girl comics now which will complement my collection of original Eagle comics well. I imagine I’ll become lead reporter on nursery comics, pre-school comics etc. in approximately 2-3 years time.”

In the meantime no one tell him what happened at the end of tonight’s episode of Doctor Who
