Yeah and Danny Devito is playing a Dalek. According to PeopleNews, the star of the new “Dr Who” TV series will be….Eddie Izzard.
The transvestite artiste was suggested by former Dr, Tom Baker, who said he should get the gig ‘because he’s so strange,’. “Eddie Izzard is so mysterious and strange. He seems like he has lots of secrets," Baker said. "You always feel Eddie Izzard knows something you don’t, or has been somewhere you haven’t been." Baker has also suggested Melinda Messenger would make a fine assistant because ‘she can scream and has bosoms’. Of course, a requirement..
The BBC though says no official announcement has been made yet, and there are a couple of other actors under consideration too. They include Richard E.Grant and Alan Davies.
