Here’s a little bit of cryptic news for you: Ricky Gervais is meeting Doctor Who in his upcoming comedy Life’s Too Short.
According to a post made on Gervais’s website, “Details are under wraps, but Ricky has filmed a little something for sci-fi nerds everywhere.”
“This time,” the post continued, “Who meets Ricky on Life’s Too Short.”
Life’s Too Short, for those who don’t know, is the upcoming comedy from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the creators of The Office and Extras. The series will star Warwick Davis as a fictional version of himself who deals with the difficulties, both socially and otherwise, of being a dwarf actor. It should be easy to work Doctor Who into there somewhere, especially considering that it won’t be the first time that Ricky’s worked Doctor Who into one of his shows.
The Extras Christmas special featured Ricky’s character Andy Millman reluctantly taking a role on the British sci-fi series after quitting his job on a successful sitcom. Millman played a giant space slug who faced off against the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) and was eventually defeated by table salt.
