Gosh no.  If I had wanted to move the conversation in that direction, I'd've
suggested Sc**thorpe.

 Awww,  Huddersfield has a lot of character for an old mill town, and a
surprising amount of charm IMO. It  also has a working Tardis, which the Dr
is kindly letting the police use(*).  J-L. Picard makes a point of visiting
regularly as well, though nobody has actually seen the Enterprise at the
same time (unless they were watching tv).  Real ale is plentiful. The train
station is an architectural gem (grade I listed) with a tasteful statue of
Harold Wilson in the plaza in front.  It's hardly Venice (or even Skipton)
but the canals and mill redevelopment set it off nicely in certain spots.  I
won't be moving there from North Yorkshire anytime soon but Leeds and
Manchester are definitely further down my own personal list of 'places I'd
consider living in'. :-)
