Who’s Tony Blair?
Now that he’s no longer Prime Minister of England, Tony Blair just might be up for a part in Doctor Who. At least, that’s what producer / writer Russell T. Davies hopes.
The London Daily Express reports the Doctor Who producers are trying to obtain Mr. Blair’s services for a fourth-season guest shot or cameo. The former Prime Minister, who previously had appeared on The Simpsons, does have a new job and might not be available: he’s the Middle East peace envoy for "The Quartet," a Led Zepplin-like supergroup consisting of the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia. But that job probably has a lot of down-time.
This could be a good career move for the former PM. After all, thus far the new Who has begat no less than three spin-off shows; four, if you count the animated series. If Blair agrees to appear in Doctor Who (perhaps as a Cyberman), might George W. Bush be called upon to drop by Torchwood?
