This entry:

A novelty song from the UK in the 50s, about a Dalek attack, started with a Morse code alert about the onslaught. The BBC didn't allow it to be broadcast, on the grounds it might confuse maritime radio users. (as the "Dr Who Discontinuity Guide put it": "...lest fishermen and freighters believe fictional aliens were attacking England, and decide to go elsewhere...")

...is impossible, as Doctor Who debuted in 1963, and the Daleks first appeared later that year.

I've corrected it to 'the 60s'.
