    ...what? Scott Pilgrim, I can understand, but not Shaun of the Dead? Mate, you have to sort that out pronto!!! That's one of the best British comedy films ever - what do you think got Simon Pegg that one role in Doctor Who?

    So you're like really gonna' die when I ask who Simon Pegg is, huh? If you tell me which character in Dr. Who I can probably sort that out at least. I'll try to get around to SOTD soon.

    The Editor in The Long Game. The IT Guy in Mission Impossible 3. Scotty in the new Star Trek film (far from being his best, tbh). He's been in a few US comedy films recently, you'd probably recognise him from an advert you saw on tv or something.

    Well, Doctor Who normally has a shitload of famous British actors, at least in this country, it's something it's earned through being an institution really: John Simm, Sir Derek Jacobi, Bill Nighy, and Simon Pegg, in which the last two had both starred in Shaun of the Dead and was a massive hit in this country, especially for Pegg, who's done a few roles in comedy movies in the US since then. But the golden rule over here is if you make it on Doctor Who, you've pretty much made it as a British actor!

    Yeah, I'm surprised the royals aren't trying to get on Doctor Who so they can be somebody important too.

    Well, from what I've heard, one of them almost did get on the show over 20 years ago: apparently the producer of Dr Who at the time John-Nathan Turner asked if Prince Edward could be on the show as a cameo role, but an advisor declined on his behalf. I think he really wanted to do it too, by the sounds of it!

    Well, you probably couldn't go wrong with Shaun of the Dead: although the title of it makes it sound like another typical spoof of Dawn of the Dead, it's actually pretty different to the usual dumb-arsed parodies. Still hysterical, but there's none of those annoying little winks or stupid jokes you get in those stupid Scary Movie parodies. A great comedy whilst being a great zombie film in its own right is how I like to describe it.

    I think one moment to look out for is the same long shot of Shaun going to a newsagents done twice: one before the zombie invasion, and one the day after. Absolute genius that moment!
