BBC to spoil long-running sci-fi epic

Blue Peter has launched a competition to design a new Tardis console that will appear in the next series of Doctor Who.
Children aged between six and 12 are invited to create the new control panel which operates the time machine.
For the purposes of the plot, designs for the hexagonal console must incorporate household objects.
The winning design, to be chosen by new Doctor Matt Smith, will appear in one episode of the sci-fi show next year.
Entries will be judged in three different age categories, with the winner of each age group getting to visit the Doctor Who set and meet the cast and crew, including the Doctor.

I bet the Beeb's small army of set designers and technicians are really really pleased about this.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Quote from: Axisofevil

For the purposes of the plot, ... The winning design ... will appear in one episode of the sci-fi show next year.

I think these are the pertinent words here. If someone has written a clever story to explain the change, then it goes back to what it was before, then it won't necessarily spoil it.
