    That is the symbol we see in LazLabs. It is similar to the Gallireyan in the Doctor's TARDIS from the 2005 series. It doesn't look anything like the Seal of Rassilon, though.

    Not only is he a LazLabs funder, he's also a client Wink .

    Some folk have postulated that he is tapping out his hearts beat. Him on oxygen while there is clearly a passed out man next to him, well the mind can invent a few possibilities Cool .

    Actually, this is what it reminded me of as well... specifically calling back to the Mark Gatiss and David Williams comedy sketch they did together in 1999 for Doctor Who Night in a piece called The Pitch of Fear. In it, Mark Gatiss plays a BBC exec, 'Mr. Borusa' and David Williams plays Doctor Who creator Sidney Newman pitching the idea of "Doctor Who" to him. At one point, through a series of taps on his desk and clipboard, hums, and other noises that Mark Gatiss' character and a courier (Paul Putner) that steps into the office produces, it forms the Doctor Who theme.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Being the Head of BBC - I think it supposed to be the Director Generals Office.

    Great clip.

    While the "Saxon tap" was spooky, the thing that scared the bejesus outta me was the very last shot. Tennant has an amazing ability to express, "Something is very, very, very wrong here."

    Mike I think i was refering to the wrong quote:-

    I was meaning this quote from Darth:-

    While the "Saxon tap" was spooky, the thing that scared the bejesus outta me was the very last shot. Tennant has an amazing ability to express, "Something is very, very, very wrong here."

    EDIT - But my film title fits both
