Hugh Grant could've been Doctor Who, but the 2004 offer never made it past his agent
Russell T. Davies, who helmed Doctor Who from 2005 to 2010, is finally getting to work with Grant on the BBC miniseries A Very English Scandal. Davies originally wanted Grant for Doctor Who, but the actor has no recollection of the offer. "We did ask him to be Doctor Who in 2004," says Davies. I have to say, that never got past his agent. I told him this. He was completely oblivious. With that level of star, you approach the agent and they just kick it out the window. 'Would Hugh like to come to Cardiff for a year?' 'No!'"

Should Doctor Who be doing "educational"-themed episodes?
Three of Jodie Whittaker’s first season episodes are expected to be of an educational nature, with explorations of historical events, including the Rosa Parks-era Alabama. Huw Fullerton wonders if this approach could backfire: "The BBC declined to comment when contacted for this article, but assuming the stories are true this would mark an interesting sea-change for the series. The question is, would it actually be a good thing? Or would it just be an opportunity for a great TV show to become a lecturing, overly-expositional classroom video, the sci-fi equivalent of Come Outside with Auntie Mabel?"
