The New Tardis

The BBC has announced numerous cut backs as the recession bites. The popular sci fi series Dr Who has been radically overhauled - starting with the Tardis.

The Doctor was famed for his Police Box time and space traveling machine. However, the program makers have had to adapt to the new budgetary restraints. The Doctor will now travel in a porterloo. This will lead to the Doctor no longer having any travel companions as conditions will be somewhat crowded.

However, at least the program will survive. Fans of the long-running show were delighted. Tom Sillyasreky, President of the Dr Who Society, said "I don't know what I would do without it. Probably stomp around in a trench coat looking miserable. Now every Saturday evening I will be able to settle down in front of the tv and crack one off when the Cybermen come on."

The BBC refused to comment further.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
