Sir: I am a 13-year-old Dr Who fanatic. I agree with David Lister in his letter to Steven Spielberg (11 March) that it is ludicrous to have an American play the part of 'Doctor' and Daleks screaming 'I will exterminate you' with an American accent. But Mr Lister is wrong to say that there has been no whiff of romance in the Doctor's life. In the book of the BBC series Doctor Who and the Aztecs, Carmeca, a female Aztec, turns to the Doctor and kisses him on both cheeks, saying, 'Oh sweet favoured man, you have declared your love for me, and I acknowledge and accept your gentle proposal.'

THERE'S something serene and unnerving, something more, or less, than human about Steven Spielberg. It's as if, rather than just striving to be himself, he was actually responding to some perilous, deep-seated urge: 'I can be anything.' There are ways in which he intrigues the biographer in me, for this is one of the most telling American lives of the last half-century. So far, let me stress, for he's only 46, no matter that he's been a fixture for two decades. He's done so much; yet as a man he's so unremarkable. Is there enough of him that's real or ordinary, or is he maybe as ageless and steeped in alien wisdom as his own ET?

IN John Donne's 'Nocturnal upon St Lucy's Day', he wrote of '. . . absence, darkness, death: things which are not'. When I came out of a preview of Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List and wandered off down a London street in the rain, those familiar words insisted that they were important.

STEVEN SPIELBERG is not a good director in the conventional sense. His characters assume recognisable human attributes only when they are dramatically endangered. He seems unable to represent emotions other than the primitive staples of terror, awe and a sentimental yearning for the nuclear family with its clearly defined relationships.

New York (Reuter) - Steven Spielberg has scaled back his plans to make part of his next film at Auschwitz under an agreement aimed at meeting objections from survivors of the Nazi death camp, officials of the World Jewish Congress said.
