gollum and welby
From the Vapour, 9 November 2012

The media is strangely silent about the fact that the newly announced Archbishop of Canterbury is twinned with a character from the world of fiction. One of them is a strange, goblin-like creature, living underground and obsessively searching for an ancient ring of power, while the other is Gollum from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Justin Welby is reported to be at Lambeth Palace tonight, searching, he told reporters, for "my precioussss".
