a few ‘Doctor Who’ headlines

• Russell Davies doesn’t like the obsessive core of Doctor Who fandom that consists of “mostly men who like to complain” — he calls them “mosquitoes.” But he recognizes that they’re a tiny minority.

• Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy thinks Eddie Izzard would be an awesome Doctor. I agree. And in the spec Doctor Who script I’m writing, there’s a part for Izzard (though not as the Doctor).

• The Sci Fi Channel will not edit the season finale, “Journey’s End” (which we’re talking about here) — it will be shown as a 90-minute bonanza.

• The first image of David Tennant as physicist Arthur Eddington in the upcoming BBC project Einstein and Eddington — costarring Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings’ Gollum) as Einstein — has him looking very Harry Potter-ish. As I mentioned in comments just today, I’ve been seeing a striking resemblance between Tennant and Daniel Radcliffe recently, and expressed a desire to see them together onscreen, perhaps as father and son. And then Mimi replied: “Wouldn’t it be great for Tennant to play grown-up Harry Potter at the very end of the last HP movie?” To which I say, Oh my god, yes.

UPDATE: Here’s the photo of Radcliffe mentioned in comments:
