Who From the Outpost Gallifrey New Series News Page:
"Bill Nighy appears to be the front-runner for the role of the Doctor, being writer/producer Russell Davies' first choice. Now, another article in the Telegraph quotes television presenter Richard Bacon, who says the veteran actor is a "shoo-in" for the job. "I'm very good mates with the League of Gentlemen writer Mark Gatiss, who's going to be writing the show with Russell T. Davies. Mark says it's Nighy for the lead, and he's in the know on this."
Good news if true that Gatiss is involved, because it means actual fans who have written the series in off-tv formats are working on it, not pointless hacks who think the TARDIS has a cloaking device etc etc. Unfortunately it sounds like the news was carried Ferris Bueller's Day Off-style ("My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night....") And with this quote the series link to Blue Peter continues ever onward. Who could forget that amazing (!) episode when Bacon's friend Konnie Huq turned up dressed as Tom Baker?
