Doctor Who Executive Producer and showrunner Russell T Davies has been to Buckingham Palace to collect his OBE.
Not only that, he’s found time to tell the world that he hasn’t a clue who the 11th Doctor will be played by.
Of the OBE – presented by the Prince of Wales, with whom he later chatted for some time, Davies said:
"Writers are the lifeblood of a lot of stuff that gets made. So I was really honoured to accept it on behalf of everyone slaving away at keyboards."
And on the news that everyone is talking about, he claimed absolute ignorance, as expected.
"The people who are choosing the next Doctor are in the office next to me and I do not know what they’re doing.
"Imagine if you took over a new job. You don’t want the old bloke popping his head round the door saying ‘Can I give you some advice?’"
The old dog… he’s the best liar in the world, isn’t he?
