#1 He appeared in a non-canon Doctor Who short during the Colin Baker years, along side a kid who wanted to appear on Doctor Who. The Doctor and Tegan call Savile "monstrous" and "revolting". The Doctor knew something, perhaps?

Couldn't do it while Jimmy was alive. The dead don't talk, and more importantly, can't be stoolies.

Late BBC TV and radio star Jimmy Savile is accused of physically abusing hundreds of children--the youngest of whom was just 8--as well as many young adults whom he met through his high profile charity work at various children's hospitals throughout England.
Savile's crimes began in Manchester in 1955, peaked in the late 70's and early 80's, and continued at a lower pace all the way until at least 2009, two years before his death at 85.
The police report concludes that Savile committed 214 criminal offenses including 34 rapes or other serious sexual assaults across England. 450 people have come forward with information about Savile's crimes
