RODDY HELL!

Getting out of the "EE"/"Corrie" vein*......

I found this video because of Bill Crider's interest in quicksand scenes in TV and movies:





And it occurred to me that if they should ever find a reason to have an actor portray Roddy McDowall in a TV show or TV movie - say in a movie about Elizabeth Taylor's later years, perhaps? - than I think David Tennant, the Tenth Incarnation of the Time Lord in 'Doctor Who', might be the perfect casting choice.......
Just sayin', is all.....

BCnU!

* Should I ever get the chance to visit Earth Prime-Time, maybe "E. E. Corey" would make for a great nom de toob.....

It's funny that as often as quicksand is used in fiction, I've never seen any pictures of real quicksand nor heard of any real encounters with quicksand.

I agree that Tennant would do well as McDowall.

A question about that version of Fantasy Island. Was McDowell playing the same character that Montaban played in the original. Was it a continuation of the original series or a reboot? And was McDowell as Island host supposed to be the devil?

Yeah, Roddy was playing Satan. He and Roarke had a long-standing battle. It was also revealed (not sure if it was this episode) that Roarke was 300 years old.

So based on that and clues from the remake, Toobworld Central is convinced that Roarke is a Gallifreyan Time Lord.
