This Much I Know: Bink

Bink, 7, on interplanetary travel and widowhood

With being invisible comes great responsibility. I was born this way so I have always known this.

I love sneaking up on Delores when she sleeps, but I do get the odd whack around the head.  She usually misses though, because I’m fast as well as invisible.

My official breed is Silent Secret Super Hero Lop. I am the last one of my kind.

I was born on the planet Bunnifrey, the lesser known twin of Gallifrey. Gallifrey is bigger but Bunnifrey’s meadows are greener.

The Doctor once gave me a sonic screwdriver.  It was when he gave me a lift to Earth.  Yes, the screwdriver is also invisible, he has a wicked sense of humour.

I once cornered a cat in the garden with my late wife, Spoon.  She was fearless, was Spoon. That couldn’t be said of the cat, which was never seen again.

When Spoon died I thought my life was over. I was with her when she passed away, lying very close to her to keep her warm and secure. It was the darkest time of my life.

Lightning does strike twice. After I’d been widowed I thought I would never be happy again.  Then they signed me up for internet dating and drove me to my first date with Delores.  The rest is history.

I’m really into tunnels at the moment. There is something so earthy about them, it really connects me with my home planet when I’m digging.

Delores is lovely and warm in winter and very affectionate.  Our favourite passtimes are sharing a carrot and chasing each other around the lawn.

Bunnifrey’s meadows are without equal but the Oxfordshire lawn comes very close.

  1. Gallifrey… Weeell, perfect to look at, maybe. And it was, it was beautiful. They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The best…. Weeeellll…. Second best….. Weeeellll…. Any-way.

    Bunnifrey…. perfect to live in maybe. And it was, it was bunnifeautiful. They used to call it the Carrot World of the Seven Vegetables. And on the continent of the Wild Rabbits, in the hills of Hay and Floppy Ears, there stood the Golden Hutch of the Rabbit Lords.
