The new series of Doctor Who was featured
on BBC2�s �The Daily Politics� in a segment involving BBC Political Editor
Andrew Marr (who appears briefly in the series), Conservative MP and fan Tim
Collins & former Who Producer Barry Letts.
The segment looked at how politics has
shaped Doctor Who stories over the years including �The Sunmakers�, �The Green
Death� and �The Happiness Patrol�.
Barry Letts discussed how he shaped stories
such as �The Green Death� to appeal to the large adult section of the audience
while Andrew Marr remarked on how modern shows such as �Casualty� also convey
political issues to audiences who may not usually watch political based shows.
Programme presenter Andrew Neil revealed
his Doctor Who fan tendencies by accounting he�s set his Sky+ on series link to
ensure he doesn�t miss any episodes!
