50 Ways to Happiness

Because the holidays are all about pantomimes, costumes, satire and boxes of liquorice allsorts, this month's 50 Things... is 32 Cool Things About "The Happiness Patrol" (and 18 Stupid Ones). Find out the truth behind the rumour that Doctor Who was in the grip of radical leftists in the 1980s! Debate whether the writer's original ideas were better than the final serial! Marvel at the weaponization of musical notes during the McCoy Era! And gasp at the similarity between Daisy K's wig and a pound-shop duster!
