    "you're not actually reading this are you?"

    Why should I not? Never miss a post. Even all that politics stuff 🙂

    Although in that rather smart/unbelivably stupid movie's defence, I think any mortal man would be momentarily taken aback by a massive Ahnuld, coming out from behind a pillar laughing. "What is that roaring growling laughter-like sound?" and "Is he going to eat me?" would be the two first questions that would pass through the guard's mind. Before he began a Dicksian questioning of reality.

    Has Doctor Who ever given any us Dickian pleasures? And if not why not? I can only think of The Pit (reality altering drugs/dreaming androids) and that unmade Stephen Gallagher script Nightmare Country (about a virtual reality indistinguishable from our own).

    The politics is the bit that's good for you. Chew it. CHEW IT I SAY! 😉

    Re: "Dicksian questioning of reality"… umm, there's the bit in 'The Ultimate Foe' where Mel is in the court room watching the Doctor and a fake Mel in a fake court room inside the Matrix. Does that qualify, do you think?
