A Dr. Who Special
The draft script for a one off special (Christmas?) of the BBC's Dr. Who series has leaked onto the net. The plot is based around parallel dimensions and split personalities where three versions of the current Doctor (Matt Smith) will all find themselves materialised. Matt will play the main doctor, John C. Reilly is to play a dominant "older brother" type doctor while Tom Waits will be playing a wise but broken father like character.
It's also hinted that Gordon Ramsay may make a cameo appearance as a 4th version of the doctor although it's not quite clear what type of character he will play. The only description he's given in the draft is "The Ego Monger."
This of course, is all bullshit. If a Christmas special like this ever appeared I would have to sue the BBC and possibly ask that they fire their lackluster script writing staff for stealing such a lame premise. That said however, I must say that my choice of alternative Doctors is genius. A year ago, when I first heard Matt Smith was to play the new Dr. Who, I was as perplexed as the next person over who and where Smith had come from. To me at first, he looked real kooky, like a young Tom Waits or something. And last week when I saw John C. Reilly in the lovely Cirque du Freak(2009), I felt he had this look about him that was Matt Smith'ish. How I could tell this was a mystery however, as I haven't actually seen Matt Smith as Dr. Who yet. I did see Smith as himself on Blue Peter last week though and I thought there be a touch of Gordon Ramsay about him. [Ed. Similar? You mean they both English accents or something?]
