    Some Doctors are ruder than others. Anyway, it’s still kind of a cult show here. I haven’t known anyone to watch it who wasn’t already a fan of SF.

    Meh. Englishmen are evil intellectuals in movies made by not-Englishmen. Example Bad guy in a Matt Helm movie: English. Supposed to be not-English but says “Shedule” instead of “Schedule” to assert his evil intellectual Englishness. And so it goes when your superspy is not-English. Meanwhile, English Sherlock Holmes’s perennial foe is intellectual heavyweight Professor Moriarty (who, BTW, might be Scottish), but Holmes outsmarts him repeatedly; therefore, no evil in being the smarter English one here.

    Doctor Who was made by Brits for Brits. So was A Fish Called Wanda, where the bad guy is a comically pretend-intellectual not-Brit. On the other hand, if Doctor Who was made for not-Brits, well, let’s not do that again….

    Englishmen are villains to Americans because … 1776.

    Sometimes the point is so obvious, everyone misses it.

    “Englishmen are villains to Americans because … 1776.”

    Heh. If that were reliable, then the French would still be the comes-in-at-the-last-minute-saves-your-backside good guys

    The guy on the left reminds of ‘Breaking Bad’ Walter White. Anyway, regarding English bad guys, ‘Burn Notice’ has some from time to time.
