“We could have a meeting on Saturday night – “.
“I could do that.
Though I want it noted that it means I’m going to be missing Doctor Who and will have to watch it on iplayer on my laptop that keeps switching itself off”.
There’s a moment of nervous laughter down the phone.
“Is that going to be a problem?”
“Nooo…I mean I do miss Doctor Who…Some times”.
“Because it sounds like it might be a problem”
“No, really it’s not…though, crap it’s the second part of a two-part episode”.
There’s a pause.
“Look, you could come to mine and watch Doctor Who and then we could have a meeting”.
“Yes, that would be acceptable”.
