I went back in to the TodayTix presale and there was a single £40 seat for a date I could do so I have now snapped it up - a bit more than I ideally wanted to pay, and I hate paying TodayTix fees, but my train is delayed so I will still be in the middle of nowhere at 12pm and the general sale will likely be madness enough for such a short run without having to battle dodgy 4G and train Wi-Fi!
At least I can relax a bit now, although next up is the airport security queue so maybe not quite yet...
83 on one laptop, 1664 for the other. Got one Q35 ticket and restricted view Row C dress circle ticket for a Friday night for £20 each. However credit card payment is really playing up. Tried all my cards and then returned to the first and it went through. Keep trying - it does eventually work. I was afraid it might lock me out but I tried four times on one card before it went through.
I'm certainly moving through the queue, but my estimated arrival time keeps changing. I'm also trying to get through on the phone, but this aggressively jolly song (is it from The Lorax?) combined with the way it disconnects every few minutes might prove to be my undoing. Hopefully any card issues will sort themselves by the time I get anywhere...
Well, I was 388 with a 28-minute wait. Got to the front, redirected to what I thought would be the seat plan and got this instead:
