Today's edition of The Newcastle Chronicle & Journal interviews Mark Gatiss, new series writer and author of the new novel "The Vesuvius Club." In the article he discusses his new book, the movie version of his series "The League of Gentlemen," and his ambition to star as the Doctor... "although he says Christopher Eccleston, the latest doctor, brings a new dimension to the role." "I've spoken to Chris and we're going to have a kind of Brown/Blair thing," Gatiss tells the Journal. "He's going to retire gracefully after a few years and give it to me. No, I wish that were true. But if I waited as long as Gordon Brown has, it'll never happen!" (Thanks to Paul Engelberg)
