Doctor Who scored a mention this weekend on the US radio network, National Public Radio, during its program "All Things Considered"; author David Elliott discussed his book, "A Field Guide to Monsters" on the program. During the program, Elliott discussed various monsters seen on television. "There was a TV show, which I think has aired occasion on PBS here, called 'Doctor Who,'" Elliott told host Jennifer Ludden. "And there was Doctor Who, and he had these villains that went around with--they're basically--they look like upside down dustbins called the Daleks. And I would regularly hide behind the couch. But like any kid, I'd hide behind the couch, but my eyes would be peering over the top unable to, you know, tear away from the screen."
