After the loss of Star Trek there comes a new blow to Science Fiction fans. Christopher Ecclestone has quit as Doctor Who after filming just one series. He is the most hated man in Science Fiction – simply because he was so good!
This has left me in a sulky mood today. I was really enjoying the new Who but the pessimist in me says its all over. Sure he can be replaced but will the Tenth Doctor be as good? I doubt it.
So who will save us from the Daleks now? After all they are a severe threat to our existence. “Don’t be stupid” I hear you cry – they can’t get upstairs*. Ah true but with last years disability act enforcing all public spaces to have disabled access where are the stairs to stop them? With wheelchair ramps in every shop, library and public building the UK is a prime site for the invasion of the pepperpot like beasties.
*Yes yes, I know an episode in the Sylvester McCoy era proved the Daleks could travel up stairs – just humour me for the purposes of this blog!
