Did you watch Doctor Who last night?

Flak999 thought a thread about UKIP might be interesting so I decided to start one.

There's a fine line between cynicism, sarcasm and humour. This is way too subtle for me to tell which, maybe I needed to have seen last night's Dr Who...

I once watched Dr Who over 4o years ago, with a daughter. Do they still have Daleks and a Police box? Do adults watch it?

They do still have Daleks and a travelling police box. And today's Dr Who is aimed at adults.

No, you didn't watch Dr Who. Or no, your not biting fm's the bait?

Perhaps fourm member may be implying, by comparison, that UKIP may achieve the popularity that Dr Who already has, and then we wouldn't need a Tory party at all.

There's no confusion with Nontek's reply.

OK. If you're planning to watch it on iPlayer later, look away now.

Diana Rigg played a lunatic who persuaded the gullible that, if they entered her enclosed community cut off from the rest of the world, they would live in prosperity and happiness and be spared the coming apocalypse.

What the doctor's companions found was that the factories supposed to drive this economic miracle were empty save for loudspeakers playing the noise of busy machines.

And, of course, far from living happily ever after, the residents realised too late that they were being sacrificed to satisfy the desires of the villain.

I can't say if Mark Gattis wrote it with Farage in mind or if it was just a happy coincidence but it was such a relief from all the guff spewing from every news outlet I don't care.
