From Mr Dennis Guerrier (1985)

[edit]

From Mr Dennis Guerrier,

Sir, in his "Yours sincerely" (March 13) Mr Bill Cotton says that the BBC does not stoop to such tactics as to rest Dr Who as a publicity stunt". He asks your readers to accept his assurance that this "stunt" is not connected with the BBC's licence-fee application.

If this is so, why was the BBC unable to give the present Dr Who some advance warning that it was going to "give the programme a short rest to allow it to return "revitalised" only "eight months" later than originally planned"? Who is kidding whom? Or doesn't Mr Bill Cotton know?

Yours faithfully,

Dennis Guerrier,
