Doctor Who Is Doctor Who, Really? (1985)

[edit]

I appreciate your airing the science fiction program, Doctor Who, but as a dedicated fan I would like to point out in error. In most Airwaves program notes, the writer refers to the Doctor, the main character, as "Doctor Who." The entire series is called "Doctor Who"; the Doctor isn't.

Other than that I would like to compliment the program writer's cleverness and style.

Just as the Doctor has two hearts, we are apparently of two minds about his proper name. We depend on descriptions from the program distributor which consistently refer to our hero as Doctor Who. Could it be the Daleks trying to confuse us?
