Sir,—May I appeal to the BBC to reverse its decision to postpone the next series of Dr. Who. This programme represents all that is best in the BBC.

It is creatively stimulating to young minds. Its scientific content and the ingenuity of its presentation arouse the intellectual curiosity of young people everywhere. Perhaps most important, It presents an unequivocal moral message, where good always confronts and defeats evil.

As a former BBC Governor, I remember the appreciative letters from Dr Who fan clubs all over the world (I was once invited to speak to Dr Who clubs in America and to my abiding regret was too busy to accept).

Dr Who now reaches a world audience of 100 million among whom are certainly numbered foreign undergraduates at my own university who watch the programme avidly.

A further consideration (if appeals on other grounds fail) is that Dr Who's earnings in overseas markets are assisting Britain's economic recovery. —Yours faithfully, (Prof). Alan Thompson. Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.
