LOL loved your essay on toiletries!
In the same style, answer this question:
Would it be more of an advancement to the world if Harry Potter or Doctor Who could be interviewed for half an hour? Assume that they are each able to tell, and give objects to, people - whatever is requested of them. [10 marks]
It should be regarded that an interview with Doctor Who would have a greater positive impact on the world (or as he might say, Planet Earth) than that with Harry Potter. The first distinction that should be made is experience of the Doctor of over 2000 years of fighting evil, compared to that of a child (or young adult) who may be a hero, but lacks the depth of villains which gives the Doctor his reputation.
Furthermore, the doctor is better equipped to manage the requests for gifts, his T.A.R.D.I.S. is a labyrinth of rooms filled with suitable objects. Mr Potter on the other hand spent a great length of time hunting Horcruxes, which is indicative of a lack of resources to meet a presumably high demand.
In addition, transportation to the venue would also be much easier for the doctor using his T.A.R.D.I.S. efficiently and effectively to reach his destination. In contrast, Harry Potter has experience problems in the past with both the floo network and with portkeys not to mention flying cars. Thus, the most reliable method of transport for Harry would be by broom (significantly slower than T.A.R.D.I.S.). It is worth bearing in mind though, that throughout its use, the T.A.R.D.I.S. has consistently suffered technical failures; however, it should still be considered that the doctor is more mobile than Harry Potter.
In terms of advice, it should be recognised that the doctor is more aware of future events, and is thus more qualified to provide guidance on courses of action. The only real area that Mr Potter can contest the doctor is experience of adversity and hardship, but the doctor still has a wealth of experience in this field as well which almost negates the toils of Potter here.
Therefore, it remains clear the the doctor (Doctor Who?) is the more suitable candidate to provide a half hour interview involving object-giving on request due to depth of experience, practicality and competence.
