The BBC was last night facing fresh allegations of covering up sexual abuse after it has emerged that a suspected sex offender may have been operating at a high level in the Corporation for almost fifty years.
This individual, who is believed to be still employed by the BBC and can only be referred to as "The Doctor" for legal reasons, is alleged to have "travelled" with dozens of young women since 1963, although it has not been confirmed how far they went.
"They used to make me audition young girls to accompany him," said a source at the BBC who did not wish to be named. "After they were picked, I was told to have them dressed in really revealing outfits and delivered to his TARDIS."
It is further alleged that the BBC have paid licence payer's money to have his appearance altered on several occasions in a bid to discredit witness descriptions of him and avoid police identification but the BBC have been quick to deny all such allegations.
"These allegations are nonsense", they said, in an official statement released last night. "Just because a man is always dressed like a weirdo and waves a bag of jelly babies to children in one hand and brandishes some sort of vibrating screwdriver device in the other does not mean he's Jimmy Savile."
However, Katy Grant, who worked as a secretary in the BBC in the 1970s, states that she was frequently sexually assaulted by this individual and that the BBC management refused to take any action.
"It happened constantly but nothing was ever done about it" she said. "Any time I tried to report that I'd been groped by The Doctor, the bosses would just say, "Doctor who?" and then laugh and walk on."
