2MTL 381: BBC Under Attack? Toby Hadoke Helps an American Understand (Time Dilation)

Should the BBC give up on popular commercial programming like, oh, I don't know, Doctor Who? A "green paper" to be released today reportedly calls for reconsidering the British Broadcasting Corporation's purpose, while the government plans to force the BBC to dig deep into its own pockets to fund license fees for citizens over 75.

Is this the darkest timeline? 2MTL gets a little uncharacteristically political as I talk with friend of the show Toby Hadoke about what's behind these moves and whether Strictly and Sherlock and our favorite television show might be at risk.

(Also, check out Toby's play on BBC Radio Four, The Dad Who Fell to Earth.)
