On March 26th, I watched the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who on a big screen in London. Shortly before it began, we saw on the news that former PM Lord Callaghan had died.

Last night, BBC3 began repeating the series. Shortly afterwards, the news was reporting the death of former PM Sir Edward Heath.

No further comment in necessary, although I’m still very much looking forward to the Christmas special.

(Shamelessly cribbed from some smart non-bloggers who pick up on this sort of thing.)

  1. I am also very much looking forwards to the Christmas Invasion (despite the silly name) and have the screensaver to prove it.

    Hopefully, by your logic, we’ll be rid of Maggie Thatcher at the start of series 2.

  2. You might want to get planning, now: this should help.

    … then there is the ‘coincidence’ that saw the first ever episode and the Kennedy assassination planned for the same day. Curse of Who, anyone?
