Lady Gaga, a Villain for Doctor Who?

 Tell me this doesn't look like a supervillainess. She could be the new Master.

If there’s any one celebrity who wouldn’t need to change her image to fit in on a sci-fi show, whose image might even be too out-of-this-world for science fiction… it’s Lady Gaga. So the recent rumor relayed by the Coventry Telegraph that she could be playing a new villain on DOCTOR WHO really doesn’t sound that far out of the question.  I’ve never been a WHO devotee, myself, but I’d definitely be intrigued to watch an episode to see her matching wits and weirdness with the Doctor.

Unfortunately, the Telegraph also reports that this rumor seems to have arisen out of a press-fueled game of telephone (appropriate, I’d say, given the title of Gaga’s latest single.) Gareth Roberts, one of the current show’s writers, made some cheeky comments to DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE about how he’d written a script that could be an episode eventually or, in lieu of that, “an audio play in 2030, guest-starring Lady Gaga, who will have fallen on hard times.”  People talk about British humor getting lost when taken across the pond, but it seems Roberts' joke didn't need to go that far to get misinterpreted by some Brit magazine as signifying that Gaga would actually appear on the show. Apparently something similar happened with Amy Winehouse a couple years ago. == TEASER ==

Ah well… I still say it’d be interesting to see. Maybe the buzz from the rumors will actually get it to happen.

I’m kind of surprised that Gaga hasn’t dabbled in comics to any extent yet. The videos for "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" are already just as provocatively surreal as any comic in Heavy Metal. She’s probably k-kinda bizay. In the meantime, Blue Water is putting out its FAME: LADY GAGA biography comic (along with FAME: ROBERT PATTINSON) this week.

I think this is a rumour. Surely Lady Gaga is too big a star for Doctor Who.

We are talking about a series where Dimensions in Time is Canon, and that was a crossover with Eastenders for Pete's sake! Lady GaGa being in the show is relatively normal for the messed up stuff we do to our shows over here.

And Kylie Minogue is not? She was popular as well when she played a part.

Our newspapers can't be that bloody desperate for news that they have to resort to this half-glimmer of a rumour.  How did they not see through it??

I really wish people would understand just how big Doctor Who is, it's not some little throw-away TV series. Lady Gaga is not too big a star to be in featured in an episode at all, it's had Kylie Minogue in it, why not Gaga? (other than Gaga being too busy and/or having no interest in Doctor Who).

I love Lady GaGa, she'd be perfect in Doctor Who :D

that would be awesome.

don't even compare both of them.  Lady Gaga needs to fall off the radar give us all a break and take a nice long Kaka!

Wow, lot of unnecessary hate for Lady Gaga up in here!  I guess we should start hating on all kinds of pop stars who can actually play instruments, can actually sing, can actually write their own music, and can actually have their own style to them... 
 
...right? 
 
Anyways, I think it would be interesting, and especially given that it's Doctor Who.  However, I'm always weary about celebrity cameos on TV shows.

Good times. 
 
It makes me sad when people say they don't watch Foreign TV. The UK gets inflicted with 28 different series of Law and Order, such as Law and Order: Crimes against Fish Unit. 
 
That said, I think Gaga on Doctor Who would be interesting. I'm still not sure if I like Matt Smith, at the moment, but i was always more of a fan of the idea of Paterson Joseph being Doctor Who, so it might take me a little while to acclimate to it. That and the fact I've only watched three Episodes so far. Tst. So busy. 
 
Honestly, Genius idea. Now, if only we could get Patrick Stewart to do something for Doctor Who...
