He's not a fan. Thank heavens for that.

That was the point Liz. :roll:

He can write the show, be in the show, sing the theme tune for all I care.

Back on Moff - one more year.

Unless you cast Clint Eastwood.

Everyone seems to be missing the point, even though it was a fairly throwaway one.
Clint isn't relevant in this particular case because he's never played the Doctor. The actor who plays the Doctor hasn't to the best of my knowledge written any of the stories (though they may well have contributed material). There are lots of cases outside DW where the lead actor has done the writing, obviously, but we're talking about Doctor Who here.

Likewise, this guy who doesn't want to be the Doctor is an actor, as far as I know he has even less desire to write for the show than he has to appear in it, and probably no ability to do so anyway.

...all right, punks? I can't remember is I have used six retorts or only five, so if you feel lucky we can continue this odd and rather pointless discussion even longer. :roll:

Liz..

No one is missing the point but you. We all recognise you've been getting a hard time on the Moff's writing thread (I agree with all you've said there by the way)

Rory declares he's not a fan and has no interest in being the Doctor. You said that sounds ideal. So I replied.. great can he write too!. It doesn't really require any knowledge of the other thread to see Im digging at Moff here.

Clint, Im guessing, was purely a humorous observation that actually actors can sometimes be writers too.

Hope that clarifies. We're not all so dumb that we "get the wrong end of the stick on that one". Some of us are quite adept at a throwaway line.

OK, fair enough. Sorry. Must be the menopause.

If Moff really is going for the useless older brother (in the kids eyes) angle again :

Bryan Dick.

Bleeding Cool say Daniel Rigby - Ron suggests, on their current form, all the right notes, not necessarily in the right order.

Kasterborous is reporting a rumour that the actor to play the 12th Doctor may be revealed during the 2013 proms...anyone following those?

Already being discussed above and on the other thread - bizarrely.

I assume this has been posted somewhere but I can't spot it offhand so I will bung it in, just in case.

Pertains to next Doc and possible appearance of a previous one (Davison seems most likely imho).

Blow me who's dumped a load of money on Peter Capaldi?

Straight in at 6/4 at Ladbrokes tonight.

(Sum of cash, new name, this far into the search - must of spooked 'em).

Correction: Ladbrokes was only one to originally call him when betting opened.

Still, in from 20/1 to 6/4.

Who's sung his praises online? :D

Was he ever in?

The thing that makes me think the Capaldi story actually has legs is how the sanitised story of his fan years is now being pushed. A young lad writes to Barry Letts and received some scripts. Firing his imagination and ambition towards a career that would ultimately lead to...

Its so much nicer than the true story the same papers covered only two years ago.. :lol:

Capaldi would actually be a choice I could get behind.


Almost certainly not true, therefore. :(
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.
