    I do like all things Dr. Who but I love all things 4th Doctor Who related ( his were the seasons I saw as a kid here on the East Coast, NY/NJ/CONN Tri-State broadcasting area. ) so this spot is great! I can only imagine having Dr. Who so ingrained into your childhood Pop Culture where he appears on boxes of breakfast cereal. That wasn’t the case in the US in the late 70s when the show first started to be aired here.
    And although this is a great spot, thanks to Youtube’s suggestions after viewing it, here is an even more amazing series of spots for Prime Computers featuring Tom Baker as the Doctor!

    Why are the Daleks against the dry but harmless cereal known as Wheetabix? Could it be that in addition to destroying all sentient life in the universe, the Dalek agenda also includes wiping out foods that keep people regular? Perhaps they failed the Weetabix challenge when the Silurians put them up to it.
