From the Never Underestimate the British Public Files

I just don't know what to say to people who call a phone number they saw on the telly.
Dr Who fans' anger as 2,500 try and call Doctor's mobile number shown during show | Mail Online
More than 2,500 fans - whipped into a frenzy of anticipation after a cliffhanger ending in which it appeared that star David Tennant might be leaving as the Doctor began regenerating - dialled it before the last episode aired on Saturday.

One fan complained: 'They showed that number so many times, as if they were asking for it to be called.'

But their attempts to contact their hero on his personal number - 07700 900461 - came to nothing when they discovered that it would not connect-Writing on the BBC's website, one disgruntled viewer said: 'Grrr - I phoned the Doctor's phone number but there was just an annoying network message.

'What's the point in showing a phone number if you're not gonna use it?!'

What the fuck did you think was going to happen? Did you really think that you'd call the TARDIS?
Eat some pie and mash and leave the phone alone.
