Fitzroy Tavern tribute

If you're going to illustrate your article with a random bit of London that's not the Tavern itself...Fitzroy Square is a stone's throw away.
It's not the best article ever, but seeing as the Fitzroy Tavern's been mentioned in a major metropolitan newspaper now, here's a link to Jenny Colgan's write-up on its impending renovation. If you've not heard of it: essentially, it was the central meeting place in London for Doctor Who fans during the '90s; any number of people who've worked on the new series, spin-offs, and so forth used to hang out there, and some fans do still do frequent the place.

(George Orwell used to go there too. It has a storied and illustrious history for what's now a somewhat generic Samuel Smith pub.)

Happily, the pub's not closing down forever but should be open again maybe around the end of the year, so it's not the end-all, be-all...
