The filming of the next series of Dr.Who has been hit by a setback with the production team being blasted for a stunt 'explosion' which nearby people thought was a terrorist attack. They have been fined and ordered to apologise to everyone concerned. They also explained to the public that Dr. Who hasn't really been 'hit' by a setback - it's only a figure of speech. Similarly, the team haven't really been 'blasted' - only shouted at quite nastily.
Following this public rebuke the BBC are to consider filming the rest of the new series - featuring aliens, sub-human creatures, zombies, surreal sets, trick camera work and relative privacy - at the Big Brother house, where at least some of the above criteria are already in place.
When told by Big Brother of the possibility of Dr. Who taking over their house, one of the inmates said 'Who's Dr.Who?' - Two more said 'Oh good, we can wear our pink tutus' and another threw up over the monitor.
In a discussion among them afterwards, one of the men intimated he would love a part in the series if it could end with 'David Tennant holding me in his arms and whispering his undying love for me while tears run down his face'.
This was met by derision, laughter and cries of 'That wouldn't happen - this is Dr. Who remember!' Shooting of the new series continues next week.
The Dr. Who team would like to point out that this does not mean real shooting where people get hurt and a bit messy but is all done by cameras. And no aliens were harmed in the making of this series.
