Unfortunately, we don't know exactly when Sydney Newman had the idea, but we do know that a few minutes later Nigel Kneale said "No, that's a terrible idea, only a producer could come up with something like that..."
"Some days are better than others. They say that where I come from."
"Loudly, I imagine, on the day you left."
