The Trouble with Being 15 in Dr. Who and 24 in real life Is That Small Boys Fall In Love With You

Dear Carol Ann Ford: I hate to say it but you have broken my heart. thought you were 15, like the girl you play in 'Dr. Who' on television. Now I know you are 24.

I thought you were unprotected and needed someone to look after you with all those Daleks about. (I am 5ft. 41in. and have grown 1 in. since June. I am also third in my class in chemistry and have some interesting ideas about how to fight the Daleks.)

Now I know you are married and even have a daughter of four called Miranda (if she's like my sister, it serves you right).

To tell you the truth I'm not sorry you are going to leave 'Dr. Who' in three weeks' time to go into pantomime although I will admit that, without you to watch, Saturday tea will never taste quite the same again. Yours in sorrow, A Schoolboy.
