Doctor Who Is Amazed By The Prime Computer In These 1980 Commercials!

Doctor Who - Prime Computers

Thanks to friend to the Retroist site, Toby Deshane, for giving me the heads up on these wonderful advertisements featuring Tom Baker dressed as his memorable turn as the Fourth Doctor and Lalla Ward as his companion Romana for the Prime Computer.

You heard it in that advertisement folks, Doctor Who said it himself that Prime Computers were being used on Gallifrey. I really love how you can tell the two are having fun with the whole thing!
