Aaaaaaaahahahahahahaha! Haaaaaaahahahahahahaha! Oh, man, that's beautiful:

... according to this story [Jason Statham] has been offered the title role of "Doctor Who". Evidently, this rumor assumes that David Tennant will not be returning for a fourth season ... To quote the article "...It will be Doctor Who meets gangland. He will do a lot more thinking with his fists and will be a sure-fire winner with the ladies." Blimey! There are some reaction [sic] to this story on the SCIFI.COM forums, which can be found here. But, it can't be true. No way - he just does not fit the mold (at least in my mind). I'll give it a 1 out of 10 probability rating.

No shit, Sherlock! Heh, oh, that made my day, but not as much as this:

The report is that Davies wants Spears to appear as a "raunchy bunch of sex-mad aliens," using special effects to create multiple versions of her.
Now, without any knowledge of Russell T. Davies, I would suspect that he (A) Had a little too much ale and was joking with the reporter, or (B) Really wants to see Britney act 'sex-mad' (not a bad pick for the casting couch...).

Yep, Britain's most famous non-fictional gay Welshman wants to cast Britney Spears in Doctor Who because he wants to shag her. You've got to love our more credulous brothers and sisters in fandom, haven't you?

What bothers me is the rate we are going through Doctors at the moment, ever since Paul McGann.

Any fule kno that the Doctor can only regenerate 12 times, giving a lifespan of 13 Doctors max.

This means there are only three more attempts at getting Stephen Fry to take the job!

You know, I was worried about that too, but then I figured that any series that can perpetrate such a blatant (bloody literal) Deus Ex Machina as the end of series one is not going to let such a trifling concern get in its way.

I still think that a minimum 3 year contract for anyone signing up to play the Doctor would be a wise plan though. That's buy us a good nine years plus.
