According to today's Mirror, Queen Elizabeth II has ordered a DVD box set of the latest Dr Who series for her summer holiday. "She has become a huge fan of the hit BBC show starring Christopher Eccleston - and she was hugely disappointed when the actor quit after his first stint as the Time Lord," says the article. She "is also a fan of the Daleks and she intends to while away August evenings watching the series at her Scottish residence. A Buckingham Palace source said: 'The Queen loves the programme and has requested a full set of DVDs. She has asked the BBC to send her copies so she can watch the series again during her stay at Balmoral.'" (Thanks to Peter Anghelides)
