The Doctor is in Birmingham

Doing sightseeing right now! By accident I bumped into him. Apparently he is here to see Sherlock. Who would've thought?
So, we had a fun day together. Click the LJ link for some pictures!



First he enjoyed the canals. It is said that Birmingham has more canals than Venice:

Then he had a break at the ICC (International Convention Centre which also includes the Philharmony) and marvelled at the architecture:

The library is also an interesting building:

When the Doctor was enjoying the view at the Town Hall:

He suddenly got attacked by a guy long dead:

His name is Thomas Attwodd and he was Birmingham's first MP:

He fought for Full Employment and Free Trade:

And also Votes for All:

The two of them had a nice chat:

But then the Doctor wanted to go shopping! So we went to the famous Bullring Centre:
