I can’t remember exactly what is supposed to happen when a lunar eclipse coincides with a full moon but I’m pretty sure it involves werewolves, Halle Berry and NAMBLA.

It’s something of a novelty being able to take a photo of the night sky in Cambridge since London has rather too much light pollution for anything to actually show up.
Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere is finally coming to DVD this side of the Atlantic, where it has been notably absent despite being a BBC series.
