Shock news: Lib Dems aren’t Dr Who fans

From reading Lib Dem blogs like Alex’s and Will’s, you might think that there are a lot of Dr Who fans amongst the Liberal Democrats – and indeed, the Brigadier himself has been a leaflet deliverer for Lynne Featherstone.

However, I’ve been perusing the lists of what people have purchased through the party’s affinity deal with Amazon (the party doesn’t get to see individual orders, but we do get overall sales totals).

Amongst DVD purchases, the most popular TV shows have been:

1. West Wing
2. Sherlock Holmes
3. 24
4. Star Trek
5. Inspector Morse

Not a Doctor in sight.

(And a reminder about the Amazon deal – just follow this link or the link at the bottom of when ordering from Amazon and the party will earn a commission to help pay for our campaigning and other work – without you being charged anything extra).

PS I’ve got a new job. I’ve switched from working in the Campaigns Department to being “Head of Innovations” and we’re currently recruiting a new internet campaigns person to join us on the third floor in Cowley Street. Interviews are taking place this week.

  • Genesis of the Daleks – that was my favorite – Talons of Weng Chiang is pretty good too!
