As correctly claimed in a recent, Spoof story the new Dr Who Matt Smith will appear on the BBC TV Series Who Do You Think You Are.
Quite often the, celebrities who appear on, the show get a surprise when they dig up their, roots. The last, Dr Who David Tennant the annoying Scotsman discovered, that in a former life he, was gawky lanky Lancastrian Christopher Eccleston.
Christopher Eccleston was found to have been wierd "Withnail & I" straight man Paul McGann, for one second only, then, he was bow tied Sylvester McCoy whose real name is Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith who,found himself related back to Colin Baker,
Colin Baker was descended from Peter Davison, who was in All Creatures Great and Small. Sylvester McCoy had a staged name but the next stage was Tom Baker whose name is no relation to Colin Baker. Richard E Grant the other "Withnail & I" actor may have made a good Dr Who Who knows.
Some say the heritage of Dr Who is like the Bible's genealogy, in a way it is. It might make you think about your own heritage and what is true what is false in your life.
Dr Who kills a lot of alien life forms. Perhaps Dr Who is about the British Empire.
