The new "Who"

Man, it's turning into Whoville around here today. From Moonie paper The Washington Times (actually it's a wire story), comes news that Scottish actor David Tennant, last seen in a BBC production of "Casonova" will be the 10th Doctor Who, after Christopher Eccleston bailed after only one serial.

The "Casonova" show was written by Russell T. Davies, who's scripting the new "Who" shows.

Tennant also will be seen as Barty Crouch Jr. in the upcoming "Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire."

Stormy weather

Maybe she'll do "X-Men 3," says Halle Berry. But there has to be something for her to do.

"I have not read the script. All I asked is that, if I come back, Storm needs more to do...
"If they have, in fact, written her closer to the comic book, then I'm in. If not, then I'm out. I hope I'm in though. I love Storm and really want to be a part of the last film."

Hell, the script can't be as bad as "Catwoman." But I agree, Berry is a good actress and was underused in the first two flicks.

Exterminate! Exterminate!

Toy Daleks and other "Doctor Who" goodies are doing brisk business in British collectible stores, reports The Edinburgh Evening News.

Interest is up due to the new "Who" series, which saw its BBC debut the other day.

Forbidden Planet, on South Bridge, specialises in science fiction and cult comic books and toys, and manager Steve Luke has seen a huge burst of interest in Dr Who memorabilia since the new series, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, got its first airing on Saturday evening.

He said: "It’s just got bigger and bigger. The new Doctor Who magazine came out a month ago and we couldn’t get enough of them in."

Four-foot tall inflatable Daleks, talking Tom Baker figures and Cyberman cookie jars have all been selling fast.

Prices range from £7.99 for a model Tardis to £70 for a 18in tall talking Dalek.

I want a Cyberman cookie jar.
