Hamsters within wheels within wheels

I was amused to find, in the Wikipedia entry on Noel Coward, a reference to a Dr. Who novel Mad Dogs and Englishmen in which, I quote from Wikipedia 'The Doctor Who novel Mad Dogs and Englishmen features a version of Coward who has allied himself with alien poodles and gained time travel technology'.
I did wonder whether The Boy Who Told Plausible But Dull Lies had been at work again, but it appears to exist.

Mat Coward appears to have written a Dr. Who short story ( see 'losing the audience' in http://homepages.phonecoop.coop/matcoward/). Looks interesting, but not interesting enough to buy a book of Dr. Who short stories, I don't think. This bizarrely leads round in a circle because Coward (Mat, not Noel) says “Losing the audience” involves several of my great fascinations; Doctor Who, of course, and radio comedy, as well as BH itself, and a period of history that I’m very interested in - the plans for the British Resistance during World War Two', and the reason I was looking up Coward (Noel, not Mat) was that I had just read the Noel Coward play 'Peace In Our Time' which is set in a Britain defeated by the Germans in 1940 and subsequently liberated in Act 2, and largely concerns the Resistance.
