Um, champagne is supposed to be served in flutes, tall and very narrow. Serving it in those wide-topped glasses (which I think of as martini glasses) makes it go very flat very quickly.

And I am passably confident the whole idea is a form of urban myth, anyway.

Yes, the site I link to is The Straight Dope, which along with Snopes.com is a brilliant source of debunking urban myths - some of which, however, are so stupid that it's hard to imagine anyone believing them; this being a case in point.

Wikipedia tells me that the wider glasses are more suitable for sweet and heavy champagne than for the dry champagne more popular these days. I've certainly seen both types of glass used, though the tall thin flutes are pretty much universal round here.

I'm rather amazed that William Hartnell was only 55 when he took on the role of the Doctor in 1963. They certainly made him up to look a lot older.
