“Quiet please!” commanded the first Wise Man.
The other two finished their conversation and turned their attention to the first one.
“Right. Down to business.”
The other two looked expectantly at the first Wise Man.
“Reports indicate that far more people are concerned with this 50th Anniversary of a TV show than the forthcoming birthday of the Son of God.”
“Frankly, I find that show rather silly. I always have,” commented one of the other two.
“Even so it is very popular. We have to do something to make it unpopular.”
“Why? Lots of people on Earth like it. It is harmless fun,” said the third wise man.
“Nonetheless, instructions have come from ‘he who must be obeyed’ are for us to put a spanner in its worldwide popularity.”
There was a general nodding of their collective heads.
There was stony silence.
Five days later, they were still sitting there thinking hard when the most junior of the trio started to smile.
“How… Nah…. It won’t work.”
“What is your idea? Don’t worry about it being rather silly. We’ve been here for days trying to think of something. So far we have come up with nothing.”
The other two looked at him earnestly.
“Well, there is always a special show broadcast on our Lord’s Birthday. This year, I understand it will involve what they call a re-generation. This is where one actor morphs into their replacement.”
“Well, I was thinking that we could interfere with the process a little bit.”
“The show does not go out live you know! It was probably recorded last summer,”
“Yes but I am sure that you know who will let us mess around with it just this once.”
“I don’t know about that. I’d have to clear it with ‘him’ first. What sort of messing did you have in mind?”
“Well, I was thinking that every ‘Doctor’ for the past 50 years has been male. Why not…”
“Stop right there. ‘He’ won’t like a woman getting the job. You know how he feels about Women Bishops…”
“I wasn’t thinking of going that far. More like making the new Doctor start wearing women’s clothes.”
“You mean make him a Transsexual?”
“Yes. As the episodes go on, he becomes more and more effeminate and more… what the word… vampish. He can use his high heels instead of that think he calls a ‘sonic screwdriver’.”
“Well. We have not had an other ideas,” said the headman.
“I will put it to him upstairs. He won't like it but... we have to do something.”
Stay tuned for the 25th… Only joking. This is a bit of fun nothing more.
I wrote this just a few minutes before the 50th Anniversary episode was broadcast worldwide. I can remember the first ever one just a day after Pres. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, I was 10 years old.
