PostSubject: Rowan Atkinson to appear in the new series.   Mon Oct 03, 2011 12:05 am

From a BBC article - and yes the title is a little misleading but its still interesting!!!

Asked why there had never been a Blackadder feature film, Atkinson said it was "surprisingly tricky" to expand the sitcom format to an hour and a half.

He doesn't see a movie version ever happening. "We've all just gone our different ways, it's very difficult to get people back together.

"It's very difficult to create the comic creative consensus that we all enjoyed in the 1980s - the writers, producers and actors - and even if you get the same people together, they don't necessarily have the same ambitions and attitudes."

Atkinson, who in 1999 starred in a Doctor Who special for Comic Relief, said it had been "a secret ambition" of his at one stage to play the Doctor.

"I remember we were thinking of doing a Blackadder episode called Doctor Whom in which Blackadder would be effectively the Doctor and Baldrick would be his sidekick. But that never came to anything."

Atkinson did reveal he had been approached to appear in the new series, alongside Matt Smith's incarnation of the Time Lord.

"I was offered a role a year last August, but I couldn't do it because of preparations for Johnny English," he said.

Blackadder: Back and Forth was a perfect wrap to the Black Adder. I'm happy with it ending there.

I'd love to see RA show up as an alternate universe Doctor. Smile

The should do a "Dream" sequence episode (yes, I love the Dreamlord, and won't stop championing for his return) where Rowan is Doc 11 and nobody else notices he's changed.

I was hoping he would come back. He is one of the couple of Nu Who baddies I actually liked.
