It’s nonsense, Doug refuses to appear on-screen
other than as himself in interviews – though I believe
one or both of his sons showed up in that episode as
part of the ‘Invisible Aliens’ B-movie.”
I remember reading that Doug cameoed in the B-movie – and believed it. I think I’ve even repeated it on G&T, which just goes to show how easy it is for misinformation to spread (and why I should probably stop doing posts like this). Interesting about the sons, though.
But, the question is: where did I pick up this piece of trivia? Seeing as I unconditionally believed it, it must have come from a usually reputable source – I don’t believe any old tat on the internet. Where is it from?
