Dr Who

The boy with the Wirrn in his side

It’s been confirmed that Morrissey is to play a leading role in this year’s Christmas episode of Dr Who.

The curmudgeonly racialist is hoping to repeat the success of Kylie Minogue, who dazzled viewers in last year’s festive special with her performance as a load of atoms.

It’s long been known that Morrissey is a Dr Who fan. His Smiths hit ‘William, It Was Really Nothing’ was a tribute to the first actor to play the role, while the song ‘Little Man, What Now?’ from his debut solo LP Viva Hate was a caustic swipe at John Nathan-Turner. The single ‘You’re The One For Me, Fatty’, meantime, was an affectionate love letter to Colin Baker.

When asked for a comment about winning the part, Morrissey replied: “I’m not happy and I’m not sad”.

    Presumably You Are The Quarry was a tribute to the location for practically every Jon Pertwee story.

    Perhaps he’ll play a Deadly Assassin-type figure who turns out to be the Doctor’s uncle or something. After all, to quote the man himself, “I’m not the man you think I am”.
