A propos Tom's thoughts about intelligent aliens from outer space: here is the Galaxy Song from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.
"...And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space/ Because there's bugger-all down here on earth."
The song is classic - and perfectly sweet - Edwardian music hall, by the way. The Pythons were fond of traditional English things: they were often quite conservative at heart.
