Latest Doctor Who Casting

Filed in: Doctor Who, Links.

The latest casting announcement from the Doctor Who production team has a lot of fandom in an uproar, with many of them comparing the casting to that of Bonnie Langford some 20 years ago with Lawrence Miles taking this to extremes.

OTOH gordon_r_d's cartoon on this matter is full of win.

I'm not going to mention who's been cast at this point, as it may be regarded as a spoiler, but for the score I think this is a great casting decision. Also, I like Bonnie Langford but you probably knew that already.

Are you looking into alternative realities again? That link to LM doesn't work. (But, geez, that man can waffle...)

Looks like he deleted it - it was there yesterday! And it's still on Bloglines, at least for the moment...

Aha! You want not

But there were very amusing moments in there.

Rather than Bonnie's casting, I compare this latest shock companion-role move to the Battle of the Kursk Salient in June 1943, the largest single battle ever fought employing tanks.
