Jedi School and Life on Mars

It's not often you get the chance to go to Jedi School to learn the ways of the ‘force’, so I thought, why not, well you would. Wouldn’t you?

It was part of the Star Wars exhibition, and the ‘school’ was held in an old court room at Westminster County Hall (complete with lots of leather and wood upholstery). It was hard to tell who was more excited to be a 'padwan', the parents or the kids. Unfortunately for us original fans, they only picked 6 kids. But it was a lot of fun, and the sight of Darth Vadar looming from the smoke can still put the fear of god into you.

On the same day, while I was trying to get to Liberty in Regent Street, I witnessed some Starsky and Hutch style driving from DCI Gene Hunt from Life in Mars in a Cortina, delivering Graham Norton to the BAFTAS. (please see photo). London’s all go, isn’t it.
