If the New Dr Who Channelled Malcolm Tucker, This Profanity-Filled Hoot is What It Would Be Like

By Sam Gibbs on at

At last we have a new Dr Who, and surprisingly the BBC's picked none other than Peter Capaldi, who's best known as the foul-mouthed spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker from The Thick Of It. Some enterprising video remixer spliced together Dr Who footage with Malcolm Tucker scenes to produce this little hilariously abuse-filled diatribe. Something tells me this wouldn't fly with regular Dr Who fans.

Before you click play, make sure you've got your headphones on because there are quite a few f-bombs and, well, the people around you might be a bit shocked at the kind of language spewing forth out of your computer.

I have to say, I'd be much more inclined to watch Dr Who if the good Doctor was a bit fierier and in-your-face like this. Maybe tone it down a little, but Malcolm Tucker as the Doctor would be pretty epic. Come on BBC, let's revolutionise Dr Who for the internet generation, again. [YouTube via io9]
