A POP record which attacks the BBC's decision to axe Dr Who will he played today on BBC radio.

Colin Baker, who stars as the Doctor in TV's favourite science fiction series, teamed up' with pop celebrities, to record the protest disc on Thursday.

It will be broadcast on Radio One's Saturday Live show.

The afternoon magazine programme will feature a discussion on BBC1 controller Michael Grade's plan to shelve the Time Lord for 18 months.

A Radio One spokesman said : "The BBC still has to decide whether it will be played regularly on Radio One."

The record, called Who Cares? is the brainchild of Dr. Who fan and record producer Ian Levine.

It features Bobby Gee of Bucks Fizz, pop group Ultravox, Justin Hayward and John Lodge of the Moody Blues, comedienne Faith Brown and Dr Who's screen assistant Nicola Bryant.
