“I was promised Sue MacGregor; who are you?”

Here’s a brilliant clip from an edition of the Today programme in 2001, wherein John Humphrys receives a telephone call from an inhabitant of the planet Skaro.

It’s followed by an appallingly po-faced discussion about the future of Dr Who, wherein somebody called Michael Hanlon expresses his view that to ever bring the show back to television would be “an abomination” and that “it wouldn’t stand a chance”.

    I think the most charming bit isn’t the DALEK (anyone else thinks he sounds a bit like Culshaw’s impression of Patrick Moore?) but the way both McCoy and Humphreys are trying to entuse about something they don’t really understand…
    “You can ‘log on’ and ‘give it a hit'”

    Today show, Doctor Who and lack of understanding of the web. None more middle class, middle England
