Oops - Question Time must be on!

A top medical expert has hit out at broadcasters following another outbreak of exploding head syndrome on Thursday night.

The latest spate occurred during the BBC1 political debate show Question Time.

Emergency services started to receive calls around 11pm and shortly after victims of the syndrome began arriving at A&E departments, swelling the numbers already attending with the effects of drunken accidents and fights.

Mrs Cynthia Swaddling, of Southport, said: "My Philip always likes to tune into the programme but he has been getting more and more agitated lately.

"He shouts at David Dimbleby when he interrupts the panel members with silly jokes, then he starts to jump up and down when Mr Dimbleby asks people to be brief 'because we've a lot to get through.'

"'You've taken up ten minutes with those bloody imprecations, you poltroon,' he howls. But last night when Mr Dimbleby said where the next two shows would come from and reminded viewers how they could contact the show through things like Twitter for the third time, he turned a rather attractive shade of mauve and then his head exploded."

Dr Llewellyn Spucklehempf, director of the Exploding Head Unit at Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield, said it was time broadcasters were brought to book over these frequent outbreaks of the syndrome.

"It's time broadcasters accepted their responsibility to the health service and the general public. To repeatedly air irritating twits like Dimbleby and allow presenters to use poor and imprecise English is a criminal neglect of their responsibility."

He added that he would be seeking assurances from the Government and the BBC that a portion of the TV licence fee would be diverted to the NHS's exploding head units around the country.
