mentioned the fez to Piers [Wenger] and I before he even wrote it. He said, “I’m thinking of putting Matt in a fez in episode 13.” And of course both Piers’ and my jaws hit the floor and went “A fez? You’re kidding me, you’re going to put Matt in a fez? If we put Matt in a fez, Matt will never take the fez off. He will want to wear the fez for the whole of the next series. It will be glued to his head. He’ll be wearing it, you know, with his own clothes. It will be a nightmare.” And he said, “No no, I’ve got a cunning plan; as soon as he’s got the fez I’m going to kill the fez.”
— Beth Willis, Doctor Who producer
As soon as he’s got the fez I’m going to kill the fez.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is Steven Moffat in a sentence
best summary of anything I’ve ever seen.

I have been to quite a lot of Zoos in my life!
My craziest Zoo memory is from when I was about 9 years old, and I flew out to California (with my mom) to visit my friend who had moved there a couple years ago. Naturally, we decided we wanted to go to the San Francisco Zoo, because psshh all kids love zoos! Going there, it took us about half and hour and we had lots of fun when we were there. (THE PANDAS WERE SO CUTE!) However, upon leaving, my mom, not being used to the california area, got COMPLETELY lost and it ended up taking us 5 HOURS to get back home! My friend and I (being the overdramatic kids we were) convinced ourselves that the car ride had been so long that we’d almost starved to death. But eventually we found our way back :)
Well, since then, going to Zoos has kinda become a tradition for us. Although thankfully the trips haven’t since taken QUITE as long…
