    It should have been the Natural History Museum and Hob's end. Of course you be facing a force of 500 mega-Bernards on the cross lateral so going would be slow. Shelton Street.

        It's hard to be decisive when so much of this is speculative. Henry Lincoln may have been a great man who knew the secrets of the cosmos or he may have just been making it up. IAnd when you have to avoid fungus and can negotiate the maelstrom in a double decker it's a very different kind of game.

            Has to be Post Office Tower. Hidden in plain sight. Now things are moving.

              I wondered if there was any connection between the sacred geometry later beloved of Henry Lincoln and the London underground and found this. Apparently the work of Alan Moorefdbb4088daec07b7030212795eedfc01.jpg
              and this milkyway.png?zoom=1.5&w=500&ssl=1.pngwhich is a guide to the Milky Way. Can't get a pentagram onto the underground, through I think Quatermas found one.

                  That actually sounds like a good plan...the whole Whovian universe is totally perilous WWS. Oh, blast it here i am too now !... making a stealthy exit towards a Shifter Tunnel... in Chelsea... (😖)

                    Okay, so Oxford Street. Cautious, I know. But there is a theme here.

                          Elephant and Castle would be a perfectly good move at this stage. I can't help suspecting a bit of gamesmanship here. You pretend to be lost and faux naively make a valid move. We think this is some novice and then shallomy gallomy zoop you deliver a masterstoke. Anyway Marble Arch will do me.

                            Again, Croydon is a good move at this stage, usually. You are luring us. Also I guess you were hoping we didn't notice you play out of turn. Unless you were back-looping.

                                Oxford Street at this point is a double back loop or back loo. It amounts to reverse Pertweeing.
