Skeptics with a K: Episode #158


Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, migrant bees, surgical instruments, and sleep paralysis. Plus Alzheimer’s, pesticides, Doctor Who, and genetic engineering. Who would fabricate news stories just to get clicks? Certainly not Skeptics with a K.

    Good grief, mention of the Dr Who exhibition in Blackpool brings back the memories, most vivid being that the exit from the exhibition took you in to a chip shop. I seem to recall it was advertised on Teletext with a crudely digitised yet still recognisable image of the Peter Davidson era Doctor. Also, I am older than all of you.

    I have been a Doctor Who fan since 1974.
    I am therefore relatively old (51 is but a dim memory).
    On the other hand, Peter Capaldi is older.
    Where there’s a time loop, there’s hope.

    Peter Crapaldi has been brought in to do the same job as Sylvester McCoy all those years ago, to get viewing figures low enough to justify scrapping the show.

    I know Dr Who is crap at its best, but at least it was worth a laugh…all the polystyrene scenery and laughable costumes and plots…
