Everyone’s favourite TV granddad, Bernard Cribbins, has revealed that he is looking forward to the new series of Doctor Who – whilst admitting he would return to the show “like a shot if I was asked”.
Cribbins is of course the actor behind Wilf Mott – the man who knocked four times and set in motion the events that lead to the death of David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor, and the birth of the Eleventh, played by Matt Smith.
“I haven’t seen him and I wish him the very, very best and I’m looking forward to him enormously. I’ve heard on the grapevine that he’s made it his own, which he had to of course after David, but I’m looking forward to it with a lot of anticipation.”
He added: “Stephen Moffat is down there writing and producing, and he wrote two or three of the last series, the very best episodes, really spooky – wonderful writer. There’s nothing wrong with it down there in Wales – they’re doing a fantastic job.”
This is of course the week in which you can help the veteran entertainer get back into the charts for the first time since 1962, by purchasing a copy of his single Right Said Fred – for just 70p or so on Amazon Â (also available on iTunes and other sites) it’s got to be worth it, hasn’t it?
