A Selection of Sweet Cigarettes...

There was a time when very TV series had a packet of sweet cigarettes named after them. 

And just like real cigarettes, you had to keep buying further packets. In their case, it was to complete your collection of FREE PICTURES CARDS - usually about 50 to collect. 

You can still buy them today only they are called candy sticks and no longer contain free cards. So sad.

Here's some of the rarer examples.

Whovians in Love special emergency topical edition!

Someone put a fake eBay listing up for episode one of the missing Doctor Who adventure 'The Savages' last week. At the risk of sounding arrogant, it didn't fool me and just looked a bit like a desperate cry for help and attention. Some dreadful photoshopping - worthy of my early efforts on this blog - coupled with the usual vague details of provenance one associates with this sort of 'wheeze'. 


Fake!
Sadly, a small number of fans were taken in by the scam. Even more sadly, a large number were also 'up-in-arms' about it despite seeing through the attempted deception meaning the perpetrator gained even more publicity oxygen. 

My attempt to create a missing episode fragment is to the right... IT IS A FAKE! 

Anyhow, my usual absurd view of the world was applied to the sorry situation and, at the risk of giving him more net-time, I came up with this rather angry issue of Whovians in Love

Happy days! 

Also fake!
