Digital Spy is Gaga!

A Doctor Who scribe has jokingly blamed Digital Spy for the worldwide rumour of poly-sexual pop starlet Lady Gaga’s possible involvement/destroying of Doctor Who.

Lady Gaga - NOT in Doctor WhoGareth Roberts, who pens this Saturdays episode The Lodger explained to Doctor Who Magazine that in the early days of The Grand Moff’s chiefdom an entirely different episode of Who was planned and that now discarded script:

“Might end up on screen one day, or as an audio play in 2030, guest starring Lady GaGa, who will have fallen on hard times”.

Which was then sent around the world by Digital Spy. Roberts, speaking to the website said:

“I know what Digital Spy is like! You managed to send that Lady GaGa thing round the world. The Daily Star misquoted me as it was a slow day in their office, and now it’s in the New York Post! Never mind.”

The Daily Star commented on the throwaway DWM comment, quoting the ever reliable and mysterious ‘Source’ on the reasons why ‘Telly Bosses’ want the “Poker Face” singer… that’s the song, she doesn’t sing with an unreadable face (no, she uses her mouth – Ed):

“She is no stranger to dressing up and would be more than a match for the Doctor. It would be a great coup to get her.”

It’s a great simplification of Doctor Who’s casting decisions; it appears as though you either have to be a) willing to or have been know to dress like a alien or b) be a bit weird looking. Which would explain why Ken Dodd appeared in the classic series serial Delta and the Bannermen in 1987…

Other pop stars to have graced Who steam from legends such as The Beatles…well, footage of The Beatles in The Chase to Kylie in Voyage of the Damned. Not to mention the glorious reign of Billie Piper as Rose Tyler.
