Review

You never know what goes on behind closed doors, right? Anaesthetist Faisel looks like he lives in a regular suburban house, but venture inside and you’ll clock the many scale models of classic cars, around which he’s created intricate dioramas of famous movie scenes. Everything from The Graduate to Back to the Future is there.

But it seems he’s not alone in turning his home into a toy haven: Tasmin has whole rooms dedicated to her Superman merchandise, which she’s spent upwards of £20,000 collecting. “Do you fancy Superman?” she’s asked. And when she answers with a laugh that she does, you wonder how any potential partner on Earth could ever measure up.
