Charlie Brooker on Nortongate
TV critic and Doctor Who fan Charlie Brooker had a great rant on his topical TV quiz show You Have Been Watching this week – directed at the whole concept of IPPs (in programme prompts) of the type that marred the end of The Time of Angels last weekend.
Featuring Brooker, Lauren Laverne, Chris Addison and Rufus Hound, the clip lets you relive the horror of Nortongate, the moment when an animated Graham Norton skipped across Matt Smith’s head as the Eleventh Doctor made his famous “trap” speech.
There’s also mention of the Dalek redesign, as comic Chris Addison describes them as a cross between an old Dalek and a London bendy-bus.
Incidentally, Den of Geek have an insiders view on IPPs – fascinating stuff…
