During an interview by Fern Britton on the June 25 edition of ITV's "This Morning," British actor/presented Shane Ritchie was touted as the "next" Doctor Who. Asked for his reaction to this apparent exclusive, a surprised Ritchie said, "Really? Wouldn't that be great!" I loved all the hat and long scarf." "How would you dress as Dr. Who?" an excited Britton asked him. Ritchie replied: "It would have to be black leather trousers. A Matrix look." "Yes, that's what an updated Doctor needs!" chipped in the other interviewer, former kids TV frontman Philip Scofield who chatted with Sylvester McCoy many times back in the 80's. Of course, we'd like to point out that this is certainly not the way the BBC would have a new Doctor announced, nor do we put any credibility into it... but we've gotten a number of emails about the past couple of days and had to share. (Thanks to everyone who's written in with this story.)
