Richard Curtis is apparently writing an episode of Matt Smith’s first year of Doctor Who.
I guess this is good news. He’s a big name writer with his own fanbase and a string of hits to his name. He co-wrote Blackadder fer fecks sake, and it’ll get the press interested. Buuuuut…
He also wrote Love Actually – one of this decade’s more tedious mega-hits. A movie drowning in sentimentality, Little Englandisms and tedious stereotypes.
I’m deeply excited about season 5, thrilled about Matt and Karen and the bits and bobs that I’ve heard, but this gives me a mild case of the collywobbles. C’mon Dickie, make it a good ‘un.
