Dum-de-dum, Dum-de-dum, Dum-de-dum…
Richard Grant has been announced as the Ninth Dr. Who: The BBC is foisting off the 40th anniversary of the show with a webcast rather than a full-blown TV show or movie, but it’s official nonetheless. A six-part audio webcast on BBCi will be premiering in November. Grant describes his interpretation as “something of a ‘Sherlock Holmes in Space,” which sounds cool to me. The author of the as-yet-untitled adventure, Paul Cornell, says that it’s going to be fully-animated (not just moving stills, like the past webcasts), and that it could lead to “other things”–apparently including a series of Ninth Doctor books.
Oh, and I’d also like to share the following:
Thanks to Elissa for taking the picture, and, of course, to Red, for showing the world the proper care and feeding of the North American Game Designer. Heh.
