Dr Who writer Russell T Davies said the Conservatives will destroy the BBC if they get elected.
Conservative shadow culture secretary Jeremy Hunt revealed last month that his party was ready to freeze or cut the BBC licence fee.
Davies told the Daily Mirror: “They want the votes but once they get in they are going to be absolutely vicious. I think the BBC has got five or six years left.
“They’ll dismantle it slowly. It’ll get smaller and smaller until it just supports Radio 4 and some news.”
