An off-the-cuff comment by Sylvester McCoy on 'political agenda' during his time on the show seems to have set off a right media scramble - the Times started it on Sunday (and got a mention on BBC Breakfast), and the other big-weights have subsequently weighed in with their opinions! It's a non-story - Who fans have known this for years! - but with an election looming the papers seem to like anything 'controversial'! The debate culminated in a discussion on BBC2's Newsnight on Monday evening.
Here is a list of the various media reports and opinions on the subject - for more information see the Doctor Who News Page article.
