Come on, admit it. The thought of Johnny Depp taking on the role of our favourite time traveller sent shivers down your spine. No? Well it should have.
This week the rumour mill has gone into overdrive, with speculation mounting that Russell T Davies is penning a movie script for Doctor Who which will see the famous movie star take on the title role.
According to the source, the movie would have seen The Doctor and his companion going around the world fighting Ebola. Now despite how ridiculous it sounds, it caught on quickly, with many news publications running the story, and thousands of fans believing that it was true.
The BBC however, has released a statement in the hopes of putting these stories to bed, saying the there are no truths to the rumour, and it is all 'pure speculation' and that there are 'no plans'.
But how do you feel about this? Had you warmed to the idea of Depp taking on the role, or are you happy that it was all just a silly rumour? Let us know your thoughts
