From the high seas of the Carribbean to the weirdness of Wonderland, is Johnny Depp about to take a trip in the TARDIS next?
Tor.com is reporting that there are some rumors afloat that Captain Jack Sparrow himself will be starring as the Doctor in an upcoming film. Be prepared to take this with an entire shaker of salt, as their original sources are pretty shaky (and the original posts apparently have been taken down).
According to Tor, Russel T. Davies (the alleged writer of this project) said that the Doctor would be “on a journey through time and space with a crew of volunteers treating humanity’s illnesses brought on by invading aliens. He cures the bubonic plague and then goes to Africa to fight Ebola.” Yet Tor quickly notes that Davies, in his book The Writer’s Tale, has admitted to lying about story elements in the past.
So with that all in mind, we’ve got ourselves a bonafide rumor on our hands. What say you, Rama readers? We savvy with Johnny as the new Doctor? Or are we responding with a resounding “what?” Sound off!
