    Was just looking at Craig Charles’ list of televisual triumphs and it appears that in 1991 he was a contestant on American Gladiators!

    Er…..huh? Surely some mistake?!

    Possibly a presenter?

    Nope, he was definitely a contestant. Fighting someone named Joncowski (whose name sounds like a Cat word).

    Details here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1058790/

    Is it not possible that it was some American bloke called Craig Charles who took part?

    That’s what I thought, but it’s listed on THE Craig Charles’s list of TV appearances on imdb.

    Oh, then it *must* be true.

    Don’t doubt the IMDb. It’s infallible; it’s the universe that’s so often wrong in not agreeing with it.

    Who here’s seen the American Gladiators revival lately? I find it hilarious.

    Hey, don’t knock IMDb! I just checked the page for the 1989 Batman film.

    It says it was directed by Tim Burton.

    And that is correct.

    Ergo it is accurate. Always.

    Hey, I can’t argue with that logic…

    Davros was going to be played by Norman Lovett until they shelved him and re-cast at the last minute…

    but iMDB kept it up as Norman Lovett for ages.

    Er… Norman Lovett was never going to be playing Davros. That was a joke Cast submission that was sent to the IMDB, and they took it seriously.

    I think if he had have played Davros, the Daleks would have moaned a lot more than they did and certainly have been far more vicious.

    Given that it was us what did it, it’s safe to assume we know!

    It?s infallible; it?s the universe that?s so often wrong in not agreeing with it.

    No-one else flagged it up, but I got what you were doing there ;-)

    And the proof!:

    I remember scouring round the ‘net a few weeks after the shit storm and finding an hilarious amount of people claiming it was them.

    It would’ve been much funnier if it wasn’t for some demented Doctor Who fans pestering Norman because of it…

    There was also the people who claimed that your confession was the real hoax, in an attempt to cover up the Lovett-Davros truth.

    Fuck, If forgot about all that Lovett/Bad Wolf stuff, too! I’m still creeped out by all that.

    yeah, it was a typo all along, it was all pointing towards Norman Lovett…

    Maybe Rose was originally going to dump the Doctor for an older, balder, grumpier man aboard the space station.
