Doctor Who (Doesn’t) Meet the Mayor

You know some people are impressed with anything, and recently David Tennant and Catherine Tate signed the Lord Mayor of Swansea’s guest book.

All of a sudden “I AM SWANSEA” or whatever local effort for a news organ runs the story as “Doctor Who Drops in on Mayor!”

Which isn’t what the story is about at all, not even slightly.

But hey, why worry about journalistic integrity – no one else does these days. Especially when there’s an “amusing” take on things.

The duo, who have been filming in the city for a series of Doctor Who specials, signed their names in the Lord Mayor’s visitors’ book at the Guildhall.

Catherine Tate couldn’t help tweaking her signature line after David Tennant’s signature, adding: “Is he bovvered?”

Ohhh ha ha hahahahahaha ha ha ha, *sniff* goodness…. oh isn’t that, isn’t that just SO funny!?

Gimme a break,

(Look out for “Doctor Who Waits Outside the Ladies Changing Cubicle at Next”, coming soon to a local effort near you. Reported by Pip & Jane Baker.)
