Just to clear up a bit, davec, like you said, a muffin is the same as a Thomas's English Muffin (except over here they omit the extra 's' that we would use).
A crumpet is quite different, and is rubbery when not cooked, and much chewier than a muffin (the English kind).
There is a scene in the Malcom McDowell film "If...." where one of the senior schoolboys orders his fag (completely different meaning to the septic term, but not "cigarette" in this case) to run down and get some some muffins, and is extremely peeved when he brings back crumpets instead.
Also, crumpets are eaten whole, whereas muffins are sliced horizontally (usually pre-sliced in the packet).
SepticTone: I agree; biscuits and gravy, as pictured, look disgusting, but they actually taste delicious if you can get over the appearance of that white gravy.
I'd forgotten that (the 4th? - EDIT: I wasn't correcting you, I didn't notice you'd already stated that, and I was unsure of my memory) Dr. Who liked jelly babies - Tom Baker was my favourite, although I haven't seen any of the later ones.
Joanna Lumley's also a bit long in the tooth now, & a bit of a fossil herself, but I wouldn't mind having her set before me on a table, covered in gravy.
"Set" is used here in the transitive sense, although Americans might mistake it for intransitive (I think; I could be wrong).
Either way, I concur
