American Psychovore

Matt Smith has announced his next starring role - a musical version of American Psycho.

I confess I am slightly annoyed. We could have had a musical episode at any time in the last four years!

Of course, the Eleventh Doctor has had a musical story. In the comics...

But even without the musical factor, this is quite a shift in characterisation, into the role of an 80s yuppie who may be murdering loads of people or may just be thinking about it a bit too much.

(Hmm. Adventure about aliens using bored idle thoughts of humanity as a weapon... wouldn’t want to suggest a message that imagination is bad, of course, so turn the idea-materialiser against the aliens and let the people fight them...)
