This news dated 3 Feb, found via the usual reliable source (5 Feb), is both thrilling and disturbing.
Thrilling, 'cos, well... you know, I love my Scottish boys and this one had me first (that isn't meant to be... oh heck, what I mean is... I liked him first). Anyway, it is a little thrilling because it's like some weird kind of time-looping overlap between him and the current DW. And I love to see good people getting work.
But it is also deeply disturbing because I hate that TV has to jump the bandwagon, mostly because such stuff ends up being second-rate (and lord knows neither deserves that). Part of me just wants to scream "NOOOO!!!!" and plead waiting for something else, better, more deserving to come along.
Will I watch it if this goes ahead as discussed in the Mirror? 'Course I bloody well will!
