Alas, once more has come to our screen yet another series of that inferior, badly produced children's programme Dr Who. The plot, to say the least, is weak and the actors no better than a bunch of fifth-formers reluctantly putting on a performance for a Shakespeare - hungry teacher. The younger girl in the series stares unceasingly at the camera. Speaking of clothes, the older girl would make a marvellous underwear model as it is very rare not to see two inches of her petticoat flapping around the hem of her frock. And finally, the fight arranger should have been literally knocked out of the series. When a 5-year-old asks: "What's he falling down for. The fist never touched him " it's enough to make anybody doubt the laws of gravity.

See-Through Sam, Ranturly.
