That's literally above my pay grade Vin. What I can tell you from flat-hunting last year is that this kind of door indicates some kind of former crack-house:

LOL, it does a bit yeah :)

except the tardis is an old police box so can only be blue/black .. if it were red it'd be a GPO phone box, and the doctor would have had to queue like everyone else.

A red front door has many different meanings in different countries, in Scotland it simply means the mortgage is paid off in America it means it welcomes weary travelers or something like that, to be honest it's all new to me I had to DDG it

Yeah I figured it'd probably be one of those urban myths with a tiny root in reality .. it **may** have meant something to a small few years ago, but if a Scot is having to Google it......

I've never heard of it, not that that means much.

The English don't all dance around banging sticks together with bells on their ankles either :)

Make the most of it Graeme, but remember you've just spent what's likely your one and only cartridge .. my turn(s) will come.
