Exterminate! Exterminate!

The nation sighs in relief. It seems that the BBC has now settled its dispute over editorial control with the estate of the creator of one of the 'baddies' for the new series of Doctor Who currently in production and due to be screened on BBC1 next year.

So the Daleks are set to play their normal evil role. Doctor Who was one of my favourite television programmes when I was a child, wobbly scenery and rubbish dialogue notwithstanding, and I am looking forward to seeing the new version. Christopher Eccleston is a good choice for the lead role of the errant Time Lord; he seems to be quite a versatile and skilled actor.
