Doctor Wired

If you’ve ever manically tried to write your own Doctor Who script, spare a thought for poor old Nicky Wire of once-fashionable Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers who has been playing with a few ideas of his own recently.

Whether there is some form of Motorcycle Emptiness at the root of his attempts, or he’s gone From Despair To Where, it really is hard to fathom. But let’s face it, playing around with Doctor Who is hardly a Design For Life for most of us, is it?

Asked recently about songs he’s been working for on the Manic’s next album, Wire replied:

“I know it sounds like a cliché but that line, ‘Rage, rage against the dying of the light’, it feels so applicable to the music industry at the moment, where we’re stood at the moment. It’s not a negative thing to say, it’s just true.”

He added: “On a completely different tip, I’ve been trying to write a script for Doctor Who called ‘Do Not Go Gently’.

“The idea is centred around Dylan Thomas’s last days in New York. Of course it’s going to have a massive f**king monster in it too.”

Sounds familiar. Like Vincent and the Doctor, for instance…
