Doctor Who’s Too Short?

You would be forgiven for thinking that this was yet another commentary about the Series 6 split, but in fact we’ve just foudn out that comedian and writer Ricky Gervais’ new sitcom series will feature an appearance by the Daleks and possibly even a Doctor…

Life’s Too Short stars actor Warwick Davis – well known for many roles such as the Star Wars trilogy and Willow, not to menion the Harry Potter films – playing a caricature of himself, and like The Office and Extras comes from the pen of Gervais and partner in crime Stephen Merchant.

Little is known so far, but with plenty of images of Daleks and Ricky in a police box, it seems likely that the hints are pointing to another affectionate dig at Doctor Who…

“Details are under wraps, but Ricky has filmed a little something for sci-fi nerds everywhere.”

“Who meets Ricky on Life’s Too Short.”

It should be good…

…and if it isn’t we’ll still have this from the Extras episode which guest starred David Tennant as the Doctor.
