Further to your recent Doctor Who correspondence, I feel that the public should be aware of the increasingly disturbing relevations appearing in the Lost in Space shows on Channel 4 during Sunday lunch (set in 1997).

According to these programmes within ten years we will all be wearing Bacofoil jumpsuits and using 1950s computer hardware.

Space exploration will leap ahead while robotics still has metal men waving their arms up and down like Zebedee in The Magic Roundabout.

All very disturbing, especially since the jumpsuits will make it very hazardous for me to use my new microwave oven. What should we do?

Yours in chainmail undies,

Gavin The Opera Singer,

Tewkesbury, Gloucs.

Don't worry. In another two years Moonbase Alpha will break orbit from the sun in the pilot of Space 1999 and the resulting climatic disturbance and solar radiation break-through will render your microwave redundant as all meat will be cooked at source. Meanwhile you may like to see a (The) Doctor.
