THANKFULLY the waiting is all over. The announcement, on your front page ('Dimbleby provides answer for 'Question Time' ', 12 December), has enabled us to get back to our normal lives. David Dimbleby is to be the new presenter of Question Time.

This event has, during the run-up to the announcement, carried with it more flam, more 'in-depth' personality profiles, more 'and now over to our media correspondent at the scene' ballyhoo than the election of a Pope. If the BBC really wants a slightly podgy, fully inter-textual, media-referent figurehead who will say nothing controversial, why didn't they give the job to Mr Blobby?
