The November 18 issue of the UK's "The Sun" featured another 'potential': the star of "The Royle Family," Ricky Tomlinson. Says the article: "Dalek's My a**e! Royle family slob Ricky Tomlinson wants to be the new Dr Who. He reckons the Timelord should be a scouser and says: 'I'd be perfect! There are always funny moments and a scouse accent would work well. It instantly makes things funnier'. Ricky, 64 - famed for Royle Family catchphrase 'My a**e!' - added: 'I've always fancied myself as a bit of an action hero and i'd love to do some Dalek bashing'." Rivals for the job include Eddie Izzard, Alan Davies and Rowan Atkinson." As usual, take with adequate grains of salt. (Thanks to Scott Hughes, Phillip Madeley)
