Ah, the Xmas Radio Times. All is right with the world again. In this year's bumper issue, complete with a choice of covers, including one featuring a Dalek, an interview with outgoing Doctor Who David Tennant is one of the main features. Handy little checklist too for his other appearances over the festivities, including the television version of Hamlet.
There's also an interview with John Hurt and some generous coverage of An Englishman In New York, although TV Editor Alison Graham, whose tastes are often dubious at best, attacks it for being a disappointment in comparison with the original film The Naked Civil Servant. Well, yes, dur! Alison, it's bound to be but that's not going to stop me and thousands, nay millions, of other homosexualists from watching it.
Am I reading too much into this? But there are no major bits of coverage for Day Of The Triffids in the RT. Just inclusions in the day's choices. Are the Beeb not confident about their latest adaptation?
