The front page of The Times today (15/1/22) has a photograph of a face on a door. The door of 10 Downing Street is ajar and is reflecting a portrait of the Queen, to whom Number 10 recently apologised.

This reminded me of the Weeping Doors in Knightmare Series 4. Among their recurring phrases were "The bitter pill of self-delusion" and "Truth will out and so will you".

Meanwhile, the Cambridge Dictionary Word of the Year is homer: seemingly because a large number of the UK's Wordle players don't remember Barry and his team's potion choices on Level 3 (or the first Lurleen Lumpkin episode of The Simpsons).

A weather forecast including the phrase "bringing wintriness to the lower levels" immediately brought to mind Aesandre in Series 5!
