I keep forgetting to post these, so I hope you’re not forgetting to read them! First off… the Doctor… Doctor Who fans angered by trailer for Over the Rainbow – BBC News Frankly an example of EVERYTHING that is wrong with modern broadcasting, and a prime example of EXACTLY the kind of thing the BBC SHOULD NOT be doing. EVER. This incident made me embarrassed and sad to be a BBC employee. BBC Complaints On an unrelated note, if you’ve ever wondered how to lodge a complaint to the BBC… Doctor Who: The Adventure Games: first episode, The City of the Daleks, revealed – guardian.co.uk And now a happier Doctor Who story.
