Spin-off Number 3?

Would the BBC invest in a third Doctor Who spin-off, this time starring Lee Evans as Professor Malcolm Taylor and Noma Dumezweni as UNIT Captain Magambo?

Popular tabloid the Sun certainly thinks so, and under the headline “Lee’s spin-off spectactular” they claim that Russell “Stoke the flames” T Davies is considering a show dedicated to Taylor:

“Lee and Noma are a spin-off series waiting to happen. UNIT soldiers often work best as half of a double-act, so Magambo needed a foil, though we never dreamed we’d get to cast the part so well.” He added the spin-off could even make it to air late this year.

Russell, who quits the show after the next three specials, said: “The team is busy on more projects which might give an extra boost to Doctor Who fans in the autumn.

“It’s too early to reveal these plans.”

Not that early though, surely?
