There's going to be a major transfer from the fictional universe of radio (still a viable alternate reality!) into the Toobworld Dynamic. However, this is going to happen over in the UK, so I don't think Americans will ever get the chance to see it.

Brian Cox ('Deadwood', 'Kings') will be bringing his Radio 4 character of Bob Servant to BBC Four. Bob Servant is a business man in Dundee who is multiversal, since he first appeared in a book by Neil Forsyth entitled "Delete This At Your Own Peril". (It was a series of email exchanges with internet scammers.) Bob Servant then invaded the Radioverse(?) in a show called "The Bob Servant Emails". (It aired first on BBC Radio Scotland.)

Since then, he's also appeared in two other books - "Why Me? The Very Important Emails Of Bob Servant" and "Bob Servant - Hero Of Dundee".

The name of the TV series will be 'Bob Servant, Independent', in which Servant runs for the Broughty Ferry seat in Parliament. Brian Cox said that the show will be a good example of the area's "unique East Coast humor."

Bob Servant even has an online presence. His website provides details of his background:

"In the 1970s, his window cleaning round was generally accepted as being the largest in western Europe while his key role in Dundee's cheeseburger wars of the 1980s saw him pushed to national prominence."
