Eddie Izzard’s Doctor Who and the Daleks Routine

Did you know that Eddie Izzard, sometime marathon runner and potential future mayor of London, used to be a standup comic? Of course you did – he still is.

But did you know that the comic – who made headlines when he revealed himself to be a tranvestite, a move that enabled him to dress as he pleased on stage – was also a Doctor Who fan? Other than being touted by the press as a good casting choice and suggesting himself for the role, he’s also performed a routine based largely on Daleks.

View it above – note that it predates nuWho by around 10 years.
