Following his resignation from Oldies favourite station Radio 2, Russell Brand is in talks to play the new Dr Who, following the departure of David Tenant from the iconoclastic role.
Brand, known for his hair, and extreme thin-ness believes that the role is his for the taking. Apparently, he is in talks for a Dead Parrot to star alongside him, but it was felt that that would reveal the acting of Brand too much.
Jo Brand, no relation said: 'Russell would make an excellent Dr Who. I also felt he would make an excellent Panto Villian, and I believe he is in rehearsals in Rhyl as we speak'
A number of Panto villians are said to be up in arms about the news, well not Captain Hook, obviously, but you get the point.
