"Welcome to the historic centre of Rome, in the year 2013. It was here at the top of Via della Vite, just off Piazza di Spagna, that four holidaymakers from Birmingham nearing the end of their six-day trip to Rome bought the ice creams with the nasty after-taste.

This is one of those stories where the most charitable thing you can say is that there are probably additional factors beyond the issue at hand that have contributed to its denouement, but regardless, nothing you see here could exactly be considered a good advertisement for the act of smoking or those who participate in that activity.
You know, maybe we don't need to auto-tune everything. Good Lord.

"US Doctor Who fans are being urged to keep the plot of Saturday's finale secret after DVDs of the series were sent out early in error. BBC Worldwide said 'a small number' of fans had been sent pre-ordered DVDs three weeks early. It asked those with the DVD not to reveal plot details which would ruin the 'viewing pleasure' of others. It promised footage of current Doctor Matt Smith with predecessor David Tennant 'if everyone keeps the secret'."

'Inside was an empty can of cat food,' said McAlonan, but no animal."
