    Default Where were you in 2005?

    2005 may only have been 6 years ago, but things have changed a great deal in that time.

    Where were you and what were you doing in 2005?

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    I was working in flexible benefits, posting to PS a lot and watching Doctor Who in my spare time.

    Heady days.

    I was in the Lower Sixth at school in Wimbledon, preparing to take my AS-Levels!

    I'm now living in America, with two degrees to my name, preparing to get married!

    Things HAVE changed a great deal in that time!

    Do you know what they call me in the ancient legends of the Dalek homeworld? The Oncoming Storm.

    Me and Steve were house hunting while the series was airing (and after for a little while too) which was fun and scary.

    I was in the middle of the first year of my MSc, so was very busy as I was working full time too. It was enjoyable, but tricky balancing my time

    I got made redundant the day before 'Aliens of London'. Happy days!

    It's okay, Andrew... I went to "the other place" - there's no way they wouldn't have let me not do A-Levels, lest it damage the school's reputation!

    I was working in a job where I was taking a lot of daily abuse, so pretty fed up. By the time of Parting Of The Ways I was on a much better project, and had a really good mentor who set me on the path I'm on now. W00t!

    Cameron had only just started football training. Which seems odd now considering how skilled he is.

    Then, I was planning world domination from a secret HQ under Loughton Library. I am now Rupert Murdoch. Draw your own conclusions.

    I was living in Bracknell and I switched jobs from doing IT Support at the local college in Bracknell to doing IT Support in London. I started working in London just over a week after the 7/7 London bombings.

    Sorry, maybe I'm being a bit dim, Duncan, but does that mean you moved your house to South Kensington, too..?

    Ah, no but I can see why you thought that when I re-read my post.

    I moved offices from Baker Street to South Kensington.
