Oh, I’ve regenerated? … ‘citing!

So, Russell Brand has resigned from his radio show due to feedback from voice-mail messages that he and Johnathan Ross left for Andrew Sachs, the actor who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers.

That’s fairly surreal.

I haven’t actually heard that show yet, but based on the descriptions of the messages (and I am speaking here as a fan of Brands work) it does sound like a complete and total douchebag move on their parts.

Having said that, this does mean that Russell is without a permanent job and at ALMOST THE EXACT SAME TIME, David Tennant has announced that he will be leaving the role of Doctor Who…

That leads to all sorts of amusing and TOTALLY AWESOME possibilities, doesn’t it?


  1. http://is.gd/5aQ7 has recordings.

    They are unspeakably crass.

  2. He has resigned from his £400,000 p/a saturday night radio show.

    He still holds a £6m contract for doing tv & other radio so the resignation (sadly) is not going to leave him without permanent work.

    It was pathetically puerile & just not funny.

  3. Dude. Noel Fielding as his assistant. Time-Travelling Goth Detectives.


  4. David Tennant is my favourite Doctor. 🙁 Except for when he does the gritty teeth thing which is a bit annoying!
