Not Patsy! Don’t be ridiculous! No, Eddie. Eddie Monsoon off-of Ab Fab (also known as Jennifer Saunders off-of French and Saunders) is being mooted – and really hard – to be the new Dr. Who. As in Time Lord. As in Dr. Who!
Apparently everyone knows that this is David Tennant’s – that is the current Dr. Who’s – last series (thanks to Catherine Tate, a friend of Jen’s, who let it slip on the radio). And everyone knows that the front-runners for the most coveted part in British television are one James Nesbit (noooooooooo) and one Rhys Ifans (hmmmmm, have to think about that one).
But what no one knows (except those people who listened to Sarah Kennedy on Radio 2 this morning) is that Jennifer Saunders is being talked about as the first ever Lady Time Lord. It’ll be for a one-off special (VERY special) and we hope it’s true.
