Ahhh - apparently it comes from an american show (ICarly and Friends) as a made-up britishism. That explains why I've never heard it :P

Clearly you people know nothing about Britain or British slang. I was fortunate enough to have been there at the conception of this term -I'd just finished afternoon tea with Lilibet and was waiting for my corgi-bag when I saw Phileeep going to town on one of the palace sheep. Suddenly a blue phonebox appeared right in the Victoria Memorial fountains and the woolie bounded out of the gates and swam to safety inside. "Bloody doctor always swanning in and spoiling things" exclaimed Phil, at which a head popped out and yelled "You always were a Who-knocker" just as the box swirled and whooshed off into the distance. A QuornEater guarding the gate overheard the exclamation (although the sonic-screwdriver boom happened right in the middle). Henceforth, the term Who-B!-knockers has been used to refer to those of welsh persuasion. Because the Brits speak so quickly and have a propensity to swallow entire syllables, it has gotten a little squished up back into three syllables over time

O M G!
I knew the lovely Mark Gatiss had written another Dr Who episode, but have just found out that Reece Shearsmith also appears in it.

Given that Jeremy Dyson does not act, we'll now have had the full hat-trick of The League of Gentlemen in the show.

And for those who moan that the programme is a luvvies club - yah boo to you, with knobs on.

New companion revealed. Looks like she may be from the '80s.

Oh man, I am loving the current series of Doctor Who.

I struggled with Capaldi's first season - mainly because of the story telling. There were some excellent individual episodes, but the meta story, which started out really well, just didn't pay-off for me. It didn't have the coherence of some of the better series, and seemed like it couldn't figure out quite what it was after the Matt Smith era

second season I started out dubious, but eventually liked.

Am now totally on board with Capaldi's Dpctor and his storylines - just in time to say goodbye :P

The new companion has allowed his Doctor to fully step out of 11th's shadow, and has returned him to his status as mysterious other, now that we are not seeing him through the eyes of a companion who knows him better than he knows himself.

Also, Bill is an excellent companion.

Agreed on all counts.
