Indeed, looks like the possible discussion of Ugandan politics caused tension within the office.
More likely, tension at the office led to the discussion of the Ugandan situation to blow off some steam.
I do hope the next Producer they hire is a man with no interest in geopolitics.

Frankly the whole sorry mess has left me feeling quite tired and emotional.
And cue William Shatner...

After recent events at the Beeb, it could be worse - at least nobody's assisting Inspector Knacker. Though they might get a carpeting from the new Head Prefect.

Yes, spare a thought for the poor Americans reading this and getting increasingly confused.

Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

Who is going to write "Me And My Spoon: Stephen Moffat"?

Do you have an amusing story you want to tell about a spoon?

Steven Moffat: This is the problem with the internet, nobody wants to wait, you want to spoil my carefully planned story about a spoon.

Cont. pg.45.

Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

Recent events have shown that older males sometimes have difficulties in working with their younger, more attractive female colleagues. I wonder if anyone has any pictorial evidence showing that men and women of different ages can get along amicably?

I work better with more attractive colleagues.

Because I'm trying to impress them so they'll sleep with me.

Frankly, I live for the day that David Yates' movie gets off the ground and Spilsbury and his publication discover they don't have the same access to a Hollywood production that they have to Cardiff.
I have a similar desire for immortality.

The moderation of GallifreyBase is one of the most hilarious things I've seen. Talk about people who take themselves so incredibly serious.

It's not just the mods, but also half of the posters there. God, to think Trekkies get a bad rep for moaning and being too serious. I've never encountered such a wound up bunch of arrogant and snooty fanboys in my life.

Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

According to people who have seen the new DWM, the issue that caused such a tizzy yesterday with its leak of the John Hurt/David Tennant/Billie Piper news, while Faith Penhale's new role is mentioned, there's no mention that Skinner has departed (which would explain why Penhale has a new role with the production).

"You will be erased from Doctor Who," indeed.

Re: Caroline Skinner Has Quit!

If you want to apply for Skinner's former job, the BBC is taking applications for the next ten days.
