Some interesting news on the WHO~horizon
Nice jacket?TOM "I Bet He Cried After 'Time Crash'" BAKER
has mooted a return to DOCTOR WHO
he says that he's never
watched the show since its return in 2005
. Now, this totally
contradicts comments he made on a DVD
commentary, with LIS "Slurrrrp!" SLADEN
, where he spoke rather derogatively of the 'revamp'. So have you seen it or not Tom?
Anyway, it seems that he would
return to the show if they "ask me nicely"
. Part of me wonders if they got PETEY D
back just to p*ss
that old b*stid
off. Don't get me wrong, I lurve TOMMY B
but there's an old saying: "Don't slag off a show and then expect them to ask you on it."
In a bizarre
coincidence, he did the same with SHOOTING STARS
and then subsequently appeared in the ill~fated (but not terrible)
remake of RANDALL & HOPKIRK DECEASED
. So he's got form
in that area.
article was proving to be a dull read - regarding DOCTOR WHO
novels - until I came across this nugget
. There was a recent novel, REVENGE OF THE JUDOON
, that was going
to feature WINSTON CHURCHILL
, but the "TV people"
liked the idea so much that they want to use it on the small screen. Obviously
a bit late for SERIES 4
but it looks like an appearance from the ex~PM
is likely in perhaps one of the 2009 SPECIALS
or possibly SERIES 5
. Now, there are SPOILERS
in the next paragraph, so this post is at end for you if you don't want to be sullied with info on the upcoming series of DW
. You have been warned...
Firstly, a bit of house~keeping
. In THIS
post by me I gave out some tantalising, if true
, news about TORCHWOOD
but I forgot to source it; for completists (I don't make this stuff up, you know)
, you'll find the relevant sources HERE
. Interestingly, and I use the word quite wrongly
, those articles also bring up the name of ROBERT "Wanted: My Career Back On Track" CARLYLE
regarding the 11th DOCTOR
. His name has been bandied
about a lot over the past few years and in a recent RADIO TIMES
interview he said he wouldn't mind taking on the role. I bet he wouldn't!
spoilers. Not sure how to gauge this one. It popped up on WHO
forum by a guy who claims to have a friend on the production team who is leaving (I know, I know)
but he offered the following tidbits: 
returns, she meets the DOCTOR
by accident; it is not
returns, she does so alone (at first) 
THE DOC meets up with SARAH JANE
"minutes" after THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES
finale finished 
THE DOCTOR goes looking for his former companions 
There is "definitely"
a regeneration this SERIES. The last point is very intriguing as the regeneration could be a number of characters other than the Doctor (as we know DAVEY T is doing the specials)
including:  THE MASTER
- reportedly JOHN "Please Come Back" SIMM
filmed a few scenes back in NOVEMBER and there is his ring left behind in last year's finale;  THE DOCTOR'S DAUGHTER (some claim this it the title of the episode she appears in)
- this one seems unlikely but EPISODE 6 of the new series will feature either his actual
daughter or someone claiming to be her but his could all
be confusion as GEORGIA "I Am Peter Davison's Daughter" MOFFETT
is playing a part in it; 
Flashback to the 8TH DOCTOR
regenerating at the end of the TIME WAR - the woman who runs the MCGANN BROTHERS website has said that PAUL MCGANN is working on something at the moment but won't (or can't) reveal what it is. 
or simply another TIME LORD
Regenerating?'Til the next time,C.
