Fears that Daleks will become chaos, tales of ringworm and odd ways of saying 'I'm having a baby' dominate forum chat

With less than a week to go till polling day, chat in the online staffroom has, inevitably, focused on the general election. But we are bored with that, so let's talk about Doctor Who. The latest doctor Matt Smith, has attracted plentiful comment since he appeared on TV screens earlier this month. At least from female teachers — male teachers are more interested in his companion, Karen Gillan.

CuriousHistory was especially excited-by an episode featuring Winston Churchill. But he had one concern: "I just hope KS2 history isn't hampered by a generation who believe the Daleks were around in WWII."

Fincop wondered what they would do to make the programme more relevant to today's teenagers: "Will the next season have obese Daleks?" "I think they'll go chav," replied Mangleworzle, "'I is Dalek Keesha an' this is Dalek Chardonnay, you is like gonna be well mean bad exterminated innit."'

For makka pakka there was only one real Doctor. "Tom Baker for me — he signed my Doctor Who monsters book when I was four."
