Make Good TV Not Bombs

As if all of this talk of doctors weren’t enough, I thought it would be a good time to spread some Doctor Who rumors around (because, you know, here at Carol’s Little World, we’re all about interplanetary innuendo.)

For starters, I’ve heard that the producers of the show are in talks of making a Doctor Who full-length feature film. (Oh, how I wish they could use a lensbaby on that. It would give new meaning to the words “time warp,” wouldn’t it? Makes my eyes bleed just thinking about it.)

If that weren’t enough gossip for you, latest ramblings have the current Doctor, David Tennant, nixing an appearance by Harry Potter author JK Rowling. To keep David’s space/time/we’re not a spoof of ourselves continuum happy, show producers nixed the idea. Look for this years Christmas special to be “Victorian” (their words, not mine.)

In other “who are you now?” news, former space capsule mate of Tennant, Freema Agyeman, is reported to be starring in an upcoming English version of Law and Order, SVU. While there’s no telling how a British Benson (played in the US by the oh-so-incredible Mariska Hargitay) will fare, it’s safe to say that poor unsuspecting British folks everywhere will now have to battle space and time to get their TiVo’s to work. (You do recall what happened when I tried to order up some Law and Order re-runs now, don’t you? Or do I have to go and get all Nicolas Cage on you again?)

Here a tip for my British friends, from me to you-never, and I do mean this under penalty of death, never say you don’t know who Nicolas Cage is. Oh, and, biopics about serial killers aren’t really so bad, once you get past the dismembering of neighborhood cats part. But, you know, it is a TiVo unit and all, so you can sort of “fast forward” through those bits.

I’d say “Oh the Humanity!” but I’m not really sure who’s left around here that isn’t a wee bit alien, so I’ll leave it at that.

Until next time/space capsule with bunny ears…
