INT. BLUE PETER STUDIO – EVENING 1
1979. SIMON GROOM, Blue Peter presenting legend, is talking
to camera. Around him are children’s paintings on easels.
But the one that really caught our
eye was this brilliant painting of
Doctor Who battling the Daleks.
The camera focuses in on a pretty good painting of Tom Baker
facing off against some Daleks.
You might have guessed the artist
is a bit of a Doctor Who fan, but
if there’s any doubt, here’s a
photo of him in all his Time Lord
A monitor flicks to a Polaroid photograph of a young boy in a
huge, unwieldy home-knitted scarf and a too-large-for-him
floppy brown hat.
