Paddington vists St Paul's Cathedral in this book, somewhere I've never been.

Ah, you definitely should, mainly so you can go up inside the dome and see the Whispering Gallery, and then go right to the top for the views. Having said that, it'd probably cost about £20 to do that these days. EDIT: Christ, I was only half-joking, but it is actually £18 a pop at the moment!

I loved Paddington as a kid, I thought he had the life of riley - gets taken in by a family who give him his own room and feed him, isn't expected to work or pay his own way, and spends his time pottering up and down Portobello Road. You can see why I moved to London with promises of an easy life like this dangled before my eyes.

Well, he danced with Kate, but William told him to do one after some pretty desperate and (it must be said) unseemly pleading:

Oh fuck, don't give them ideas! The 'kids books for adults' thing is limping into its third Christmas in a row, and I think it's only the fact that they've got a film franchise to think about that's stopped them from doing it so far. But now Michael Bond is dead, who knows?

As long as they don't 'do a Peter Rabbit'.

On what fucking planet is that a bear? That's clearly Gordon the Gopher, and he's not fooling me.
