John Simm Angered by “Tesco” Story

You probably caught our earlier report on some things John Simm said about shopping in Tesco and looking forward to putting Doctor Who behind him.

So angered by the reports in the mainstream press this morning, Simm took to Twitter to set the record straight.

He goes on:

So, how do we know for sure? Well, as Simm points out:

We’re more inclined to believe John Simm than not, and he’s hardly likely to make such a faux pas and then go to such lengths to deny it. He’s just never come across as that type of guy.

So if he is being straight on Twitter, that’s a pretty shoddy piece of journalism.

(Thanks to everyone who highlighted John’s response.)
