Even If Karl Marx Does Look Rather Like An Unshaven Timothy West

Despite having lived in London for over a decade, yesterday was the first time I've ever been to Highgate Cemetery.

As the chap at the gate said, the main draw for many visitors is the tomb of Karl Marx:
But there are many other graves to see, and it's a quiet and somehow relaxing atmosphere - well worth a look if you have the time and are in North London.

Though I have to admit that several times in the visit I heard David Tennant's voice in my head...

"Whatever you do, do not blink!"

And did you whisper to Karl´s grave ´you´re never gonna BELIEVE what they did wih your theory´?

Nah, he looked miffed enough already.
