Well, Dr Who, BBC1, is given that appellation, and certainly the current adventure, which will last four weeks, has not been dredged up from the archives.

Yet the formula is relentlessly the same as when, in gentler days, the programme descended upon us at Saturday teatime, and children hid behind sofas, cushions-anything—as the Daleks approached.

Now, Dr Who suddently respectable is given adult scheduling directly opposite Coronation Street.

Why does this happen? The only explanation can be that Dr Who nowadays is only fit for ingenuous grown-ups. Today's small children, presumably, would hoot it off the screen.
