Dr Who's Phone Number Is 07700 900 461, Why Doesn't Anyone Answer?

BBC Phone Fracas

United Kingdom: Viewers of the BBC television science fiction series Dr Who are said to be livid with the BBC for clearly showing viewers Dr Who's cell phone number and then, when they rang it, viewers get a network error message.

Apparently 2,500 people tried to call the number before the end of the show on Saturday evening.

"The producers of the show should be exterminated", we presume some viewers quipped dryly.

The cell phone number is registered but it doesn't go anywhere...

It is believed that callers will not be charged for calling the number, at least not in this time dimension - check your bill for the next twenty thousand years just to be safe...
