After pushing it back from season 28, Stephen Fry, in a Douglas Adams Continuum webchat said “Ah, now, unfortunately, I’ve had to pull out of the Dr Who gig. Lack of time. I just couldn’t find three minutes to string together. Barely enough time to go to the lavatory these days, let alone take on new projects. Sorry about that… ”
Obviously this is terribly upsetting, but the rest of the chat includes some interesting nuggests, such as speculation about a Fry-scripted Dirk Gently film (which would presumably, being based on the book, contain elements written for…. Doctor Who) and a guest appearance with best buddy Hugh Laurie in House. It would be great to see them on screen together again.
He also revealed that he owns:
- 3 Intel iMacs and one G5 iMac
- Two Mac Minis
- 2 MacBook Pros and one G4 Powerbook
- A dual processor G5 Powermac
Doctor Who, Dirk Gently, Macs and House all in one chat, wow….
