I haven't liked the man since I first wandered into the Doctor Who fandom. He seems to have some really weird ideas concerning relationships that I won't go into here because OH MY GOD, it makes me tired.

But!

I saw this a minute ago while Googling the world, and even though I've wondered about his mental stability before, this has truly got me wondering what the hell goes on in that rat maze he calls a brain.

HITLER WOULD BE TOP TIMELORD (also in the Guardian Unlimited).

...the straight-talking 44-year-old stunned an audience of fans – including young children – when he suggested Nazi leader Hitler would be his ideal person to play the Timelord.

Asked who from the past or present he would most have liked to see play the role, he replied: “Hitler. He was stern and strong. He would be great.”

Russell was speaking after a preview screening of the show’s Christmas special, Doctor Who: Voyage Of The Damned.

The answer was meant to be a joke, which did spark a small amount of laughter from some of the audience. But others were horrified, thinking the gag had been in bad taste.

Even current Doctor Who David Tennant, 36, seemed slightly stunned by Russell’s answer. And when he was asked the same question, he seemed almost speechless as he declined to answer.


Please, RussT, I'm begging you. LEAVE THE FRIGGIN' SHOW. Moron.

I am continually baffled by the man. Maybe it's a bet he's got with himself to see just how outrageous and offensive he can be before someone with the power to actually do something muzzles his stupid ass.

It's so rare that a Lily Allen lyric applies to anything having to do withg reality, but there's one for Rusty.

"Oh Uncle Rusty please refrain from doing that. The showing is for kids so can you stop being a twat."

ROFL! For serious, if I worked at the BBC, he'd be gone. I'm thinking with the show going on hiatus soon anyway, it's time to make a clean break.

He really seems intent on stirring up as much fan hatred as possible. I've already decided that if he's still around for series five my Who-watching days are over, and I'm sure I'm not the only fan who feels that way.

At this point how can the folks at the BBC think the show's better off with him than without him? I certainly don't see how.

Yeah, please, we can has Moffat nao? I mean, I will put up with a lot from Rusty, but he seems to be high on the gravitas of his own hubris. Like those people on South Park in the Prius episode.

ROFLMAO! Yes! You for the win. ;-)

I'm done with him. There's waaaaaay too much he'd have to do to redeem himself in my eyes; judging by what he seems to think of Martha -- and by extension her fans (regardless of what he says he thinks of Martha) -- I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get it.
