Dr Who and the kerfuffle

Walliams 'to write Time Lord script'

Little Britain’s David Walliams is reportedly writing an episode of the next series of Doctor Who.

The comic is known to be a big fan of the show, and has made no secret of his desire to appear in it.

Walliams has previously appeared in a Doctor Who radio play, written by The League Of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss, and he chose former Time Lord Tom Baker to provide Little Britain’s distinctive voiceover.

But now the Sunday Mirror reports he is also writing a script for the next series of the revived show, which will see David Tennant take controls of the Tardis.

An unnamed TV insider in quoted in the newspaper as saying: "Russell T. Davies, the chief scriptwriter, is a massive fan of Little Britain.  He was impressed by the fact David's comedy writing is always full of really original ideas.

"David jumped at the chance and is taking it very seriously."
