Roger Moore Gunning For A Part In Doctor Who
Lots of celebrities are fans of Doctor Who and have expressed interest in turning up for a guest appearance, but one actor seems more likely than the others to get his wish. Roger Moore may just be popping up in the cult sci-fi series. That’s right, James Bond may be crossing paths with the infamous Time Lord before long. It all started this weekend when Doctor Who and Sherlock scribe Mark Gatiss sent out a tweet.
Gatiss took to his Twitter to commentate on a movie he was watching. That movie was The Man Who Haunted Himself staring Moore. He Tweeted
Isn’t Roger Moore wonderful in ‘The Man Who Haunted Himself’? I have such a soft spot for the film.

Well Roger Moore is on Twitter too. Gatiss didn’t tag him with his Twitter handle, but a few days later Moore caught wind of Gatiss‘ praise. He responded. It didn’t end there or we wouldn’t have a story. Gatiss shot back to Moore‘s Tweet too:
@sirrogermoore My life is complete! Will be I’m touch. My Dad was once mistaken for you by two old ladies in Whitley Bay!

So there you have it. Moore and Gatiss will probably be talking soon. Something could come from it, or it could end there. Gatiss has about equal pull with both shows, so it could be either/or. This isn’t the first time Moore has expressed interest in the show either. He said he’d like to appear when he heard his Bond brother Timothy Dalton was cast as a Time Lord in David Tennant‘s swansong The End of Time. I’d bet the two men will have a chat now that Gatiss has been directly in touch with the former Bond. So do you think we’ll see Moore popping up in Who or Sherlock? Doctor Who seems more likely. People have been debating for years whether or not ol’ James is a Time Lord considering how many faces he’s had.
