    @luke I shall keep an eager eye out for it on *cough* other platforms. Would be nice if the # unlocked their archives, as IIRC was once seriously considered, so docu-essays was a game we could all play.

    @kat Oh, I'm the first to leap onto a chair. My real # life has always been adorable hedgehogs, badgers, wombles, Bill Oddies etc.; the spiders, snakes, heat, fingernails-down-blackboard accent, and proud racism is just a passing nightmare.

    For many years, the only # merchandise from # Enterprises was a # of Revenge of the Cybermen, the 2nd worst story of Tom Baker's 1st series. The 3rd worst was bloody brilliant. Takes a special kind of genius to be almost, but not quite, as stupid as possible.

    I see that "The Fan Show" is produced by # Worldwide, the filthy lucre arm of the corporation. In my day we had #'s # Magazine. Also photocopied fanzines. Produced by fans, not by BBC Enterprises, as it was known in those days.

    Oh, goody. Another # spinoff. Proves the # has "immense trust and commitment to the [Dr Who] brand," apparently. Our culture is not your brand, Aunty Beeb.

    The # have already downsized & outsourced - in the late 80s, when # was the only drama they produced in-house, until they snuffed that out as well. It took over a decade to recover from that catastrophe.
