hmmm, what about having a female doctor?
(no doubt there's some technical, geeky reason against this... i'll await instruction from CPie )

Is it true that Catherine Tate is lined up to be a new companion? I really didn't like her in last year's Christmas episode. All that shouting *shakes head* I wonder if Minogue'll turn out to be an alien in this year's, she's looking more like Jocelyn Wildenstein every week.

And yes, Laura, a female Doctor would be great. Any preferences? _popupControl();

so i hear I don't like the woman apart from sweary nan. she's a better actress than comedian, but she's not that good an actress.

As for female doctors, well i don't know - there's a wealth of excellent actresses out there. it'd be nice to have someone break the mould. how about Zoe Wanamaker? think she'd be fab - superb actress, great sense of fun and excellent comedy timing. Amanda Redmond (is that her name? the one in New Tricks) very strong, sexy type, from "New Tricks"). Also, Sarah Parish for a younger female Doc - yes yes she's been a baddy but i like her lots and i think she'd be very good too. just please not caroline quentin or amanda burton, over-used, over-hyped or what?


(and by the way, what do you control with your pop-up? )

I'm not quite sure  what this popup control  is but let's refer to it as my magic wand.

Totally agree with all the actresses you just said, any one would be great. Just NOT Nesbitt! What about Siobhan Redmond? She's quite stern and authoritative.

oh yes good idea, and good comedy too (Smoking Room). i think the comic tough is important.

Nesbitt's blackened hair in Jekyll really scared me there was one advert where he just reminded me of Papa Lazarou from League of Gentlemen, which was just plain wrong.



papa lazarou

Ha!  Papa Lazarou is easier on the eye, wouldn't you say? I hope they don't ever approach Mark Gatiss for the role, he seems to pop up on everything and I'm not keen on him unless it's the League Of Gents or Nighty Night. I don't like it when he does 'serious'.

Off topic - The Smoking Room is brilliant. Has it ever been on terrestrial? That guy with the crosswords cracks me up.

hmmm, not sure, think it's just been BBC3 but may have been veh late night BBC2 at some point?
You can't tell when things will transfer from digital really, Drop Dead Gorgeous (the Manc comedy drama thing about a chavvy girl becoming some kind of supermodel) is now on BBC1 as a new drama, it was on BBC3 last year, definitely a good number of months ago.
