Don't forget to turn the clocks back on Sunday 27th October

That time of year again folks. Daylight savings time ends on Sunday 27th October in the wee small hours. Back to good old GMT+1 for the next few months.

Back to perpetual darkness for me then. Dark when I leave for work, dark when I leave for home, and no natural light in my office.

If we really have to change I would quite welcome the change in an opposite direction - to have at least a bit of light after leaving work... Otherwise I would just leave the clock alone...

NO NATURAL LIGHT that would be a total nightmare for me- and could never work there (sorry, but I really could not)

Now, where could Slaphead be working where there's no natural light...? My money's on an underground superlab.

Yep. You'll have to jump into the TARDIS and hop back in time to make the change.
