Following weeks of speculation, the office for the Mayor of London has confirmed that Boris Johnson will make an attempt to overthrow Matt Smith and become Doctor Who. If successful, Boris will become the twelfth doctor to take on the role, and the first to introduce a pay-as-you-ride TARDIS service across London.
Stephen Moffat, the current writer of Doctor Who, has admitted he has started working the first episode. 'Boris's first appearance as the Doctor will be an Olympics special and see him fighting away thousands of invading 'immigrant Mo-Bots' using only his trusted 'sonic wiff-waff bat' he revealed. 'Future episodes will see him him time-travel back to 1987 Oxford to infiltrate the infamous Bullingdon Club in a bid to prevent it bringing down the UK in the future, and a parallel universe show where the Doctor has no special powers and is forced to travel in a bendy-Tardis.'
Although his bid to become The Doctor has not yet started, speculation over the identity of his main nemesis has been rife with the bookies taking bets of thousands of pounds. A spokesman for Ladbrokes told us 'The main enemy of the Doctor has always been a character that has had some authority in the past and is now trying to cling on to any last bit of power they can. This character needs to be a tortured soul that will try anything to beat him, but never be able to achieve his goal. Money has come in for Davros leader of the Daleks, the Master played by John Simm, and the clear favorite Ken Livingstone.'
The search for his trusted assistant has proved a little more difficult, with details of previous affairs in the public domain being blamed for the lack of interest in the part. However we are told a misunderstanding has seen London Zoo provide a mate for a randy baboon
With such a huge cult following and solid base of fans, Boris has managed to entertain the nation for many years. He has been the editor of the spectator magazine, made guest appearance on 'Have I got news for you', and most recently his comedic role as the Mayor of London. But Fans of Doctor Who say he would be the worst Doctor yet. 'Just look at him' a spokesman for the official Doctor Who fan club sobbed. 'He is a geek. Not only that but the Doctor is supposed to take pride in his appearance. You can't have a Doctor that looks like Worzel Gummidge.'
