Let me tell you a story. One that will either make you laugh or question my sanity and it has to do with the first week of living in student accommodation (student halls). One student, a saucepan of sweetcorn and a loud, unfamiliar noice in this setting convinced a half-asleep me that I had travelled back into time but without the aid of a police phone-box camouflaged Tardis or a time turner.
