The Sun Claim Another Doctor Who Spin-Off
Britains favorite comic, the Sun, are claiming another Doctor Who spin-off, this time starring Lee Evans, this will follow in the footsteps of Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, K9, and not forgetting the pathetic Totally Doctor Who, (plus Confidential and Declassified if you wish to be completist :) )!
They claim Russell T Davies has said he was impressed with Lees performance (as we all where!) and is considering creating a new spin-off around him - Personally I can't see it!
They also claim he said Lee and Noma Dumezweni, who played Erisa Magambo of UNIT, are a spin-off series waiting to happen. UNIT soldiers often work best as half of a double-act, so Magambo needed a foil, though we never dreamed we’d get to cast the part so well. He added the spin-off could even make it to air late this year.
Although Evans was good as Doctor Malcolm Taylor, I'd like to see more of him in Doctor Who before anything is taken further. I'm off to find a large pinch of salt, as I can smell b*llshit :)
