Doctor Hugh?

This week rumors swirled that award winning actor Hugh Grant had been cast as the 14th Doctor on long-running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who.

Eh. I'm not a huge fan of Grant, as I've never cared much for his "Befuddled, Sputtering Englishman" persona he uses in virtually every role he plays. 

That said, I'd take him in a second over the gawky, off-putting slag who's currently killing the series with every episode she appears in.

Grant denied the rumors of course, saying he has no idea where they came from. Truth, or misdirection before an official announcement?

This wouldn't be the first time Grant's been associated with the titular Time Lord. Showrunner Russell T Davies approached Grant about playing the Doctor in the 2005 revival of the series.

And he actually played the Doctor in The Curse Of The Fatal Death, a Doctor Who spoof filmed specifically for the 1999 Comic Relief charity.

If Grant does actually become the next Doctor, expect lots of underplayed, "charming" stammering and stuttering. "Um... yes, well, um... yes I'm the, um... the Doctor, aren't I?"
