WE took our family to the BBC's Dr. Who exhibition on April 3 at Longleat, the stately home of Lord Bath. It was a shambles.

We arrived just after 11 a.m. and queued for two hours. Only when I walked to the ticket tent to find out why the queue was not moving did I learn that no more tickets were being told.

Our journey was some 200 miles in all, and was to have been a special treat for the children.

They came home very disappointed and upset, and we had spent money we could ill afford on petrol and the parking fee.—Mother, Hainault, Essex.
