Today in 1788 The Times of London was first published. Mark the occasion by dressing up as a Time Lord… wait, that’s not right…

Though it really started in 1785, it had the rather ponderous name of “The Daily Universal Register” which, you must admit, sounds like something that was put together by Rassilon.

Further, The Times is now wholly owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, and I think recent blood tests have shown him to be at least partially related to Davros. I might be wrong about that. Please don’t sue me.
