     Together at last: the Eighth and Ninth Doctors?

    General NewsLater this year, Paul McGann and the animated Ninth Doctor, Richard E. Grant, are set to see their new short film, Always Crashing in the Same Car, on limited release in the UK.

    According to, the production will see the former Withnail and I co-stars reunite under the Handmade Films banner for the first time since their landmark 1980's comedy.

    Crashing, which takes its name from a 1976 David Bowie song, may be featured in British cinemas as soon as Autumn, alongside a re-release of 1987's Withnail.

    Though details of the plot have not been announced, it appears to have nothing to do with a 2002 film of the same name.

    McGann continues to wait for the release of several films in which he's appeared over the last few years. Longest in the can is Naked in London, which was ostensibly completed in 2005. Two other films, each written and directed by Brian Bliss, are also awaiting release dates. Poppies was completed last year, and Voice from Afar, filmed earlier in 2007, seems to be in the final stages of production.

    Meanwhile, McGann's television career has re-ignited, after having co-starred in last November's 6-part Australian serial, Tripping Over, and this year's upcoming Mancunian 6-parter, True Dare Kiss.

    I enjoyed them working together in Withnail and I and I am now looking forward to their future collaboration together again.

    Never heard of Stephen E. Grant. Liked Richard in Withnail, though.
