I stopped watching Doctor Who halfway through David Tennant’s first series — finding it all incredibly tedious.
Nevertheless, I have been interested in who they would select as the doctors next incarnation, Tennant’s replacement. Would it be someone who might actually bring something multi-dimensional to the role, I wondered.
After seeing the wee bairn who has been cast in the role, however, let it suffice to say that I certainly won’t be watching this series, either.
Young, cute (I’m reliably informed) and not a beer-belly in sight! Talk about playing safe. Bring back the days when the Doctor was old and crusty… the days when you were completely certain he would never, ever get a shag.
Stephen Fry would have been my pick.

The recent ”discovery” of Bigfoot in the US state of Georgia has turned out to be a hoax.
Two researchers who bought the “carcass” for an undisclosed sum found it was a rubber gorilla suit encased in a block of ice.

No surprise there, then!

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bigfoot experts yesterday reacted with suspicion to the claims made by Matt Whitton and Rick Dyer that they have found the body of Bigfoot. Apparently, the alleged DNA results from the corpse’s body tissue revealed in one test human DNA, another was inconclusive and the third came back as the DNA of a possum!
It’s not a Bigfoot — it’s a chimera!
I especially found this amusing, however.
In the accompanying video of the press conference, Mr Whitton says:
“[…] you have to come to terms with it and realise you’ve got something special.”
So what do they do? Dump it in the freezer. Makes a kind of sense, I suppose but… no. Just no.
