first British-Asian women MPs, tonight on BBC1 I think we've just had the first ever Brit Asian in Doctor Who's tardis! Or at least the first person in there ever to be called Nasreen Chaudary. Am I right? If yes, you go girl!
In fact, reading elsewhere about this just now, Meera Syal has apparently been desperate to appear on the show for some time. I'm not surprised. She and I are about the same age and so, growing up, the programme must have the same iconic status for her as for me. (Though I must say, I've tried but I'd still prefer David Tennant...sigh...him and Meera would have been magic.)
Doctor Who continues on Saturdays at 6.15pm on BBC One.
