Doctor Who makes the Grade

Possibly the biggest story of all about the recently finished series of Doctor Who: Michael Grade is a convert!

The new icon, which seems kind of appropriate, is from a 1917 Punch cartoon captioned ST. GEORGE OUT-DRAGONS THE DRAGON. It's sub-titled With Mr. Punch's jubilant compliments to Sir Douglas Haig and his tanks. Cropped out of the icon, the tank is rolling over a shocked looking dragon in a pickelhaube.
