Radio Times to Potential Customers: "There's Nothing On Next Week, Don't Bother Buying Me"

The Radio Times. Circulation: 1,046,601 (ABC, Jan-Jun 07). Readership: 2,959,000 (NRS, Jan-Dec 06). Price: £1. Advertising rates: quite high.

And this week's cover? "Erm... THE EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO WITH KYLIE MINOGUE IN IS ONLY TWENTY DAYS AWAY! WOOOO!"

Not only does that mean they've rather shot their wad re: the most likely programme to appear on the cover of the big Christmas issue, but also suggesting quite clearly that out of the several thousand programmes across the proclaimed four hundred television and radio channels over the next week, none of them is really worth getting excited about. But still, Doctor Who and Kylie Minogue! Woo!

Our prediction for the cover of the double Christmas issue: Either they're using a traditional Generic Non-denominational Winter Festival Icon (i.e. a snowman or Santa), or, as we're hoping, Bruce and Tess, on a Photoshoppedly shiny ballroom floor, dressed and Mr and Mrs Claus.

(Speaking of Kylie, we're still slightly annoyed that the first single to be taken from "X" was the mediocre "2 Hearts", because "Sensitized" is genuinely the greatest three minutes and fifty-seven seconds of pop produced all year. Oh well, released in early January replete with Pet Shop Boys remixes to guarantee the song a guaranteed four weeks at the top, hopefully.)
