    Meanwhile…

    … I see that Michael Grade has recently been named the new chairman of the BBC. For those who don’t know, Grade was responsible for killing Dr. Who when he was director of programming back in the late eighties / early nineties (?), and has publically professed a hatred of the show.

    I wonder how long it’ll last this time…?
