TV presenter and serial invader of Doctor Who, Graham Norton, plans to get his own back on criticism from fans – by commissioning a new banner that shows the Irish comic being exterminated by a Dalek
If you’re unaware of Nortongate, it is the term given by Doctor Who fans to the second encroachment by an Graham Norton into the world of Doctor Who at the climax of The Time of Angels, in which an animated advert for Over the Rainbow – Lord Lloyd-Webber’s latest state sponsored advertising campaign for his next musical – was displayed over star Matt Smith’s face.
Press reports indicate that bachelor Norton is set to have his head blown off by an animated Dalek in a similar banner on his weekly broadcast The Graham Norton Show on Monday evening at 10.35pm on BBC One.
This is a preview that has been doing the rounds online:
