FOX’s spokesman said: “We had expected that people only wanted to learn how to throw a punch or hotwire a motorcycle from their TV heroes.

“But we found, quite sweetly, that the guidance that people are really looking for simply relates to being an honourable or good person.

Mind you, the top gun on their Top 24 TV Heroes of All-Time has been known to hotwire a TARDIS or dismiss murder as man-flu in his time.
