'One of the eccentricities of Doctor Who is that you just pay attention quite a bit approximately what the lovers imagine, and so little from the opposite 100% of the viewers (my stats are clinically accurate.) So thank God for a pair who placed their love at the line to set the list directly. this is often the tale of a fan boy who inflicts each episode ever made up of health care provider Who on his marriage. Or to place it in a different way, this is often the tale of somebody with a formal love and knowing of health practitioner Who, attempting to clarify it to her husband.' Steven Moffat

This can be a high-risk strategy and (as some of the comments later in the book will point out) can produce both wonderful opportunities and particular difﬁculties. The ‘leap of faith’ that is required with any twinning – however sound it might feel – is immense, and the ‘signiﬁcance of the random’ makes the leap even higher. But even when (in my experience) the difﬁculties of a project have been enhanced by such a method, so have the opportunities. This is not an ‘adopting process’. Without in any way discounting the value of educationally based twinning projects (a school in the UK seeking one in Africa, say), there can be something of a ﬂavour of ‘adopting’ a ‘less advantaged’ twin, with all the ‘do-good’ connotations that has.

The ‘school up the road’ may be as alien as another country. In the UK at the moment there is some public concern about ‘youth gang culture’. This is often based upon rivalries (often violent in their nature) between groups of young people existing in close proximity to each other. A knee-jerk reaction of ‘the authorities’ is to ‘crack down’, but there is evidence that other approaches are possible and possibly more useful. The creative energies that go into destructive or antisocial behaviour (and they are creative, even if they manifest themselves in negative ways) can be offered other channels to express themselves.
