[edit]

AFTER the galactic self-congratulation around the 50th anniversary Doctor Who, could we have a "touching drama" about how the BBC wrecked the show in the years after 1977? It could start with head of serials Graeme MacDonald surrendering to Mary Whitehouse and bullying producer Graham Williams into making Doctor Who unscary; then there could be Tom Baker and Douglas Adams turning it into a bad comedy, Michael Grade taking the show off air for 18 months and Jonathan Powell cancelling it. Finally, it could portray the 13 years that saw anyone who said the show was great and should be back on TV dismissed as "geeks", "nerds" and "anoraks".
