Default Christopher Eccleston on leaving Dr.Who

I came across this today and it was good for a laugh.

Besides which, it's foreign, so it'd be a T9 transaction or something.

In which case you have to charge a VAT-inclusive price, which contains all relevant tax at the prevailing rate.

The VAT content still has to be adjusted. Whether or not you alter your price to reflect this is down to your discretion.

Probably not, given the menu costs for no material gain.

... you can tell I've had this discussion lots can't you?

Cliffjumper ... heheh, nice invoice ... normally I'd say something's worth everything you paid for it.

At least I didn't foist a Rickroll on y'all.

BTW ... if there actually was a movie version of Blake's 7, who in your opinion would Eccleston be best suited to play?

There were no one-note shouty northerners in B7, so nobody.

Maybe Travis, for that one scene were he's just shouting "CRIMOS!"? You know, in the one where Blake gets off with his cousin.

Iíve often thought Dead Ringers must have worked better on the radio where you canít see what poor impressionists most of them are. Fair enough they usually get the voices mostly right, but Rory Bremner always manages to do a good physical impression as well, John Culshaw always looks like John Culshaw in a wig.

Having finally gotten round to this months DWM thereís some interesting stuff in the Phil Collinson interview about Eccles, where you get the impression his very methodical acting approach was completely buggered by the utter chaos of the first recording block where theyíd badly misjudged how to make the show.

Oh, and the Brigís turn in The Sarah Jane Adventures (part one of which is on I-Player) is lovely, just lovely. Though Nick Courtney is looking very frail now, even more so that when I met him about three years ago (when he was basically Battlefield Brig with whiter hair). If they donít get him into Who in the next year or so I think itíll be to late sadly.

Culshaw has the same problem as Bremner and most impressionists - he can do a good impersonation, but can't write funny jokes. He also doen't have enough variety to mount a series - the Cakebastard stuff was in every episode, and it's always the same, just him going "AM DOCTOR HOOO AM FRUM THE NORFFFFF". And as that's exactly what the Puff Pastry Pantominist* himself said both in and out of character, you've got to ask exactly what the point is. Same with Rory Bremner - Tony Blair's voice, Tony Blair's body language, speech that Tony Blair is likely to say. Oooooh, satire.


* I'd like to register Currant Containing Clown for future use as well, even if I couldn't lever it in to this post.

Culshaw doesn't write his jokes. Dead Ringers is one of those shows where about 1800 people write an episode.
