    Wow, I feel out of the loop on this! Weird UK ad placement stuff…it's quite interesting to get a glimpse. Reading up on this mascot, it mentions a Doctor Who episode called "The Happiness Patrol" that featured an homage to Bertie Bassett…so I'd say that would be my only other exposure. Horrid episode btw, they gave McCoy (my fav Doctor) and dear Ace nothing to work with in that one.

    It makes you wonder what Bassett's marketing department have been doing all this time if Bertie still hasn't crossed the pond. He's 90 this year! He's practically a British institution.

    What I know about Dr Who you could write on the back of a postage stamp so I wasn't aware of that. I did do a quick search to see if the mascot had appeared in any other games over the years, but couldn't find anything.
