And it’s down a wee bit today. And it’ll probably be higher tomorrow. Mutter.
After much speculation and the usual bonkers rumours, the BBC have now revealed who will be playing the companion to Matt Smith’s Doctor next year.
David’s stage performances as Hamlet were well received, and not just by the many Doctor Who fans who went along to see the man in action, so it’s not surprising that there’s going to be a TV version of the production.
BBC News reports that this will be a three-hour production, reuniting the principal cast, which includes Patrick Stewart as Claudius. Yes, that’s the Doctor and Captain Picard in the same production, which guarantees a lot of geeks will be watching, even if they normally shun Shakespeare with great force.
 Well, he won’t be the Doctor by the time this is shown, most likely. But he’ll always be the Doctor to a lot of people…
This looks like it’s a genuine old GPO promotional film about what were then future developments….
Like a lot of such things, it gets a few concepts vaguely right but in amusingly wrong ways. I love the method of getting a print-out. I think we should go for that, it’s so much easier than messing around with USB cables and printer drivers…
