Doctor Who News no image

Bedside Manner…

David Tennant seems to be having an effect on ladies across the country. His down-to-earth, honest manner off-screen and his on-screen persona seem to be causing a mass attraction to the Doctor Who star, 35, from Paisley.

Proof? Camille Coduri – Rose’s mum Jackie – spoke to The Sun:

“I think David the sexiest Doctor I have ever seen. I didn’t think he was so sexy until I saw him at a screening of the show then I realised that he’s gorgeous.

“He is 110% sexier in real life and he’s great to work with.”

So who are we to argue with that?

Meanwhile, sad news for technophiles as Tom Baker’s time as BT’s Voice of Text is officially brought to a close. StuffMag however seem to think hes been dropped. Furthermore:

It seems certain pernickety people were a little disconcerted to hear the rumbling thunder of Old Tom’s vocals issuing forth the sweet sentiments of their female friends and family.

So, due to popular demand, from 1 May the service will feature a choice of male or female voices. According to a BT spokesman (or woman), the female voice is more ‘comforting’ although you’re better off having a male telling a joke.

And if you want to find out about the amazing uses to which Tom Baker’s voice has been put, look no further. Some of the language is a bit racey, mind, so don’t be listening with young ones present…

And finally Christopher Eccleston – the elephant-minded among you may remember him as the Ninth Doctor – is aparently in talks to become Number 6 in a remake of the seminal 1967 series The Prisoner. The BBC News site reports that the series will be made by Granada TV for Sky One, and wil lbe written by Bill Gallagher, who has episodes of “Casualty”, “Soldier Soldier” and “Dalziel and Pascoe” to his credit, as well as “Clocking Off”. The Times also reports on this, quoting:

Damien Timmer, executive producer of The Prisoner, “The series is like Pandora’s box; it’s the ultimate conspiracy thriller. Like 24, the new series will entrap you from the opening scene.”

The Welsh village of Portmeirion (which also appeared in the Doctor Who story The Masque of Mandragora) is not expected to be used…
