Paddington to St Pancras on the tube or bus?I'll be arriving in Paddington from Bath - how long does it take to get to St Pancras (Chunnel) with luggage? I know I should take the Brown Line and change to the blue - but time???

Em, you don't. You take the pink line (formerly Hammersmith & City, now part of the Circle line) which on the Tube map between the yellow & green and brown lines at Paddington.
As for time, it's about 20 minutes

8I would allow 30 minutes.
Note that at Paddington there is a different platform for the "pink" line than for the others, and it could be more convenient that trekking to the platforms for the Circle line. However, "pink" trains are less frequent, perhaps only every ten minutes. On the other hand, Circle line trains often wait for a few minutes at one of the stations en route, while "pink" trains don't suffer this delay.
When your long-distance train arrives at Paddington, you will see that you can go upstairs from the platform where you arrive and that lead fairly directly to the platforms for Hammersmith and City underground.

9There are repairs at the Hammersmith and City (Pink) line station,but trains every 5 mins,maybe very busy during Olymoics allow 30 mins.
I would take the circle line (yellow) often stops at Edgware rd where you hop off and get a second on the same route.Detailed times.
You ca selsect speed mode and find fares from 2 quid by bus to around 14 by cab
