also - as if rachel stevens is THIRTY
If they’re going for someone that’s famous outside of television, they could do a lot worse than Robyn.
because then it'd end up like when Kylie was in and it wasn't the Doctor and another character it was the Doctor and KYLIE
the same was Catherine Tate was inescapably Catherine Tate most of the time.
Billie got away with it because she was quite convincing and not such a big face in the public eye like this lot.
plus someone like Lily Allen or Agyness Deyn would just make it seem too YOOF TEEVEE
but it’s ingrained on my mind that she’s a year older than me.
I’d like to see an older assistant – I think that would work pretty well. Someone like Honeysuckle Weeks being more of a big sister to the young kiddo could be a nice twist.
that would be fantastic to hear her northern accent on Dr Who, I don't think she is quite up for it though.
Just because experienced stage actor and star of at least two well respected drama series Matt Smith looks "a bit indie" doesn't mean they're going to cast somebody on the basis of whether it'll sell the series to Nuts readers. Billie Piper had done plenty of quality acting by the time she got the Who gig.
given some prominence a couple of days ago about Andrew Sachs doing Dictionary Corner on Countdown. That was the whole story, and it's not even the first time he's done that job. It was literally one paragraph relaying that information, seven or eight about Jonathan Ross and... actually, hang on...
"One viewer is reported to have told The Daily Star: "It's going to be must-see telly to find out if he has a dig at them. It's going to be so tempting for him with all those letters to hand." "
No end of things here, not least the surprise news that a) Sachs, who has pointedly refused to talk about the whole thing while promoting a couple of recent guest roles, would suddenly choose Countdown for his airing of imagined griveances, b) Channel 4 would allow swearing in mid-afternoon and c) Dictionary Corner guests will not be required to operate the letters board, which'll be one in the eye for that girl who's replaced Carol. Plus, quoting the Star!
he was a bit annoying, apart from that bit where they are about to watch grizzly man
as the new assistant. It'll be a nice little spin on things what with the new Doctor being young.
like he used to in some of the old ones
or bring back bernard cribbins character, he was excellent during the last series
cast an unattractive woman plz
So not like an unattractive woman would be a first.
