ACKNOWLEDGED for his devotion to "heavy metal" music and for the services he has rendered Mrs T while her private secretary, John Whittingdale, the Tories' prospective Parliamentary candidate for Colchester South and Maldon, has another string to his bow. He is, I hear, a member of the "W Committee".

This will, I gather, be of especial use should Whit-tingdale meet a stray Dalek among his potential constituents, for the "W Committee" is a Dr Who fan club which numbers various of his colleagues — including Gary Black, who works for John Wakeham, and Tim Collins, one of Shaun Woodward's Central Office apparatchiks — among its members.

"I have attended on one or two occasions," says Whittingdale. "Mr Collins has a remarkable collection of videos, including Dr Who and other such television programmes."

But Whittingdale fears that his hobby may soon be at an end. "I'm not sure I will have time to go if I get elected," he says, before admitting that he could never quite persuade Mrs T to enter the Tardis, as it were. "I don't think Dr Who has ever cropped up in conversation," he adds.
