Dr Who

I just watch the second part of Dr Who. Wow. OK. It had some weak points, like there being just one password that allows you to, remotely, launch any missile from a submarine from a home PC. I also found the aliens rather silly rather than sinister. It had some humorous lines. Aliens able to destroy earth in 45 seconds, a reminder of Tony's 45 minute line from the Iraq dossier, or was I just reading too much into that?

The kids were riveted again. The trailer for next week did however let out of the bag what we are to face: Daleks.

I can't wait. I must find the sink plunger for the full being a Dalek effect.

Only one password? They have a high tech single sign on system of course! I think the writers were having a bit of fun rather than being technically unaware. You must check out the website for UNIT

Re the 45 min/sec reference, I don't think there's much dobut it was intentional... you'll note they also had "massive weapons of destruction"...
