By the way I don't think 25 is Blue Peter as that doesn't really fit the clue. I think it's Peter Purves. He first played the part of Steven Taylor, one of the Doctor Who companions back in the William Hartnell era. He later became one of the Blue Peter presenters. Then in more recent times with the Crufts dog show. So he does fit the clue.

Dame, you're still showing 25 as Blue Peter rather than Peter Purves

 

Moonie, I don't think Petra can be right. If you read the clue: "Companion Who was Blue and also went to the dogs", companion Who is clearly a reference to the companions in Doctor Who, the Blue is of course to Blue Peter, and the dogs referring to Crufts.
