Woody Allen Who?
Okay, there’s been all kinds of rumors about this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special. People have been fighting about Australian pop star Kylie Minogue, and nobody’s been able to confirm her appearance. That’s fine; the last pop star (Billie Piper) turned out swell, so what the heck.
But Woody Allen playing Albert Einstein?
That’s what the British newspaper The Sun reports. But we’ll believe it only when writer/producer Russell T. Davies sez so… even though Allen’s "people" did the "neither confirm nor deny" thing.
While we’re at it, Outpost Gallifrey notes SyFyPortal is reporting "new interest" in a Doctor Who movie starring Paul McGann, the eighth Doctor who appeared on screen as the Doctor but once in the made-for-teevee movie, against Eric (Heroes) Roberts as The Master. McGann has also played the part in literally dozens of full-cast original audio productions for the BBC and Big Finish.
Whovians would love the chance to see McGann morph into Christopher Eccleston, although I suspect Mr. McGann would rather squeeze out a few more teevee movies before that happens – if he’s interested at all.
