Doctor Who: Terrorist?

He is single handedly responsible for bringing down the corrupt empires of countless evil dictators and insidious goverments – but it seems that the Doctor failed at the first step recently, trying to smuggle his trusty sonic screwdriver onto a flight.

Of course, there was no intent involved – Eleventh Doctor actor Matt Smith was in fact on his way to Belfast for the recent preview screening of The Eleventh Hour.

“Matt was very polite and explained what the screwdriver was. But the guards just looked puzzled. Fortunately he had some Doctor Who promo material on him so was able to show them who he was.

“Once the penny dropped and they had a proper look at the screwdriver, they let him through.”

And so it should.

Everyone knows that the Doctor doesn’t carry weapons…
