I am sorry to see you omit our most senior and distinguished female broadcaster and journalist from your list of possible replacements for David Dimbleby on Question Time (Report, 18 June). Dame Jenni Murray is surely an obvious choice. She not only has considerable and extensive experience in live political broadcasting – don’t forget she used to present both the Today programme and Newsnight – but is mistress of asking impartial but incisive questions. Her long tenancy on Woman’s Hour has made her much loved by audiences. Who better?

• Your excellent long read (How to spot a perfect fake, 15 June) suggests that “in England, the last art history A-level was cut in 2016”. While AQA did cut the subject, Edexcel developed a syllabus which we started teaching last September, and the subject, while small, is growing. History of art is also available to teenagers who study either Pre-U or IB.

• No, Chris Hadfield, astronaut, you are hopelessly wrong (Life on the moon – it’s not as far-fetched as it sounds, 12 June). The real question is not: “Can we live happy and healthy lives on the moon?” A far better question is: “Why haven’t we managed it here?”

• Your caption on the letters page photo (18 June) makes the usual mistake by referring to the highest mountain in Wales as “Mount Snowdon”. People in Wales call it by its proper name, which is Snowdon. The word Mount is superfluous.

• I also have experience of the front wheel falling off my Morris Minor (Letters, 18 June). In the passenger seat at the time was a nun, so I just put it down to the weight of the Almighty.

• When did the Guide’s “Jump the Shark” feature jump the shark? When it started to feature programmes of which I have never heard.
