Brexit Minister, Dominic Raab, has today revealed that he is hoping to persuade the BBC to make an episode of Dr Who based around the story of Brexit, which will clearly explain what the Doctor would do at this point.
It is thought that he unusually has the full backing of both Theresa May and gobshite-Brexit trumpet Jacob Rees-Mogg, to put pressure on bosses to politicise the programme in support of the government, in-line with the rest of BBC programming.
Mr Raab told us this morning that he was expecting the talks to go extremely well, due to the very testicles of the BBC being clamped firmly in the fist of the government.
He explained, “It is to our advantage that the BBC has completely abandoned the premise of one of their flagship, primetime shows and allowed it to become a sterile, anti-establishment, white elephant, much like the current government.
“They did race last week, a Trump parody this week and we’re hoping it’ll be Brexit next week. In fact, we will insist, I need answers and I need them quickly.”
Showrunner Chris Chibnall, who has promised to take the show in a new direction, so that it’s not at all like Dr Who anymore, said that he would be happy to help.
He told us, “I realise that I am the current custodian of one of the most loved shows in the history of British television, but I want it to be less about Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels and more about politics, current affairs and me.
“So this sounds like a perfect fit.”
Mr Raab said that he envisages ‘significant movement’ in Brexit negotiations once the programme has aired.
