The page that has no wish to be devoured by alien monstrosities, even in the cause of political progress.

A History of Doctor Who in 100 Objects...


It’s not often that this page dips its toes into the warm sewer of current affairs – but there’s a first time for everything. So this month, I thought we might take a few minutes to ponder 20 random Doctor Who characters. Can you spot any connection?

1 MORGUS in The Caves of Androzani: a corrupt businessman who interferes in global politics from the top of his big tower.

2 GILES KENT in The Enemy of the World: a corrupt businessman and would-be world leader with a longstanding grudge against Mexicans.

3 VAN STATTEN in Dalek: a hubristic American megalomaniac with more money than sense.

4 JOBEL in Revelation of the Daleks: a narcissist in a toupee who chases after women half his age and is dangerously out of his depth.
