‘Doctor Who’ to shoot in America?

Oh, baby. Reader Weimlady notes in comments that the British site Digital Spy had this to say today:

Two Doctor Who specials will reportedly be filmed in America in 2009.

The News of the World quotes a BBC insider as saying: “Doctor Who already has a huge following in the States. It’s on the Sci Fi Channel and is watched by millions of people there every week.

“But two specials in America, with a US setting and a US assistant, will take it to another level. David Tennant is already gaining a huge following and this will make him really hot property.”

(There’s a bit more.)

Okay, after you stopping swooning, start speculating, or at least daydreaming: Where in the U.S. should Doctor Who shoot, and which North American actor (male or female) should be the companion? And just for fun, name a North American actor (male or female) to be the villain.

I’m gonna say New York City (of course), with Zoey Deschanel as companion and Sam Waterston as the evil mayor of the city.
