Those of you of a comics persuasion may be aware of the weekly online news/rumour/gossip column Lying In The Gutters, written by noted comics journalist, upcoming Doctor Who comic writer and Seb Patrick lookalike Rich Johnston. Well, he’s mentioned Dwarf in this week’s column, and if his plot summary is correct, the cat’s out of the bag on what the Earth segments of the three-parter will entail. Pretty large (possible) spoilers in the link and after the jump.
The crew have returned to 21st century Earth, discover they are characters in a TV show that’s about to be cancelled, and decide to track down the people responsible for the show.
This probably doesn’t sound as massive as it might have done a few weeks ago, as bit by bit our guesses have edged towards this. But still. Is this the closest thing to confirmation that we’ve had of the “meta” element that so many people have been guessing at? Is this the whole story, or is there still something to do with parallel universes going on? Is this what the synopses meant by “tracking down those responsible for their creation”? Are Rob and Doug going to appear? What can this possibly mean for the show going forwards, if it is ever to go forwards? Is this one of those LITG rumours that comes to Rich from someone genuinely in the know? Or has he picked it up via guesswork? Or is he completely off the mark, as with his prediction that Paterson Joseph was definitely the Eleventh Doctor? SO MANY QUESTIONS. Three days, twenty-one hours and nine minutes until some of them hopefully possibly maybe start to get answers.
