The show might be called Doctor Who, but the lead character isn’t. He (or she) is the Doctor, even if the actor playing the part has been credited otherwise. However, in the 1966 story The War Machines several characters refer to him as “Doctor Who”, which upsets the fanboys no end. Third Doctor Jon Pertwee was highly critical of K9, saying he was twee and unnecessary for a genius like the Doctor. Happy Birthday Doctor!

Sadiq Khan has seen a lot in his seven years as London mayor: Brexit, a pandemic, terror attacks, a tower block fire tragedy, five prime ministers and a cost-of-living crisis. Yet it’s a war more than 3,500 kilometers away that could have the most profound effect on this diverse city of almost 9 million people, and his own legacy. The fighting between Israel and Hamas, now in its seventh week, is shaking Muslim and Jewish people, who have lived side-by-side in London for generations, to their core. "This is the worst I’ve known it,” the mayor said in an interview with Bloomberg, remembering his role as minister during the 2008-09 war in Gaza. The overall number of hate crimes recorded by London police in October was up nearly 46% compared to the same month last year.

It is an assault on the ears, looped with sounds of Mr Blobby repeating his name. Of course, we know that Noel’s house party was big at the time, indeed in the mid to late 90’s, the character ‘made appearances’ at Dobwalls Adventure Park, where there were times where Blobby would throw soft things around a room full of children. There was also a short-lived Mr Blobby world theme park too, if we recall.

On September 21 an engineer installed a new gas smart meter, but Mr Cowdery says this is yet to be commissioned. In the meantime, Mr Cowdery is taking his own readings from the gas meter at the front of his house. A spokesperson said: “We’re very sorry as the bill Mr Cowdery received was based on estimated meter readings which were incorrect. “We’ve since sent a revised bill based on meter readings that he has provided and have installed a new gas smart meter.
