So, switch to the producer of the show (who looks a bit like a cross between Adam West and Anthony Zerbe) as he discusses stuff with someone else (Russell T Davies, maybe?) They decide to use a stealth mode to tell the person that they've got the part. So switch views to a hotel room. Knock on the door and it's two call girls and two men dressed as the TV Batman & Robin (though thankfully the Robin character vanishes quickly when my brain realizes there's no reason for him to be there). So the future companion of Doctor Who steps back and I can finally see who it is. It's James Marsters (still looking remarkably Spike-ish).
One of the call girls (who're both dressed as French maids - I told you this one takes the cake) explains that the person dressed as Batman (actually the producer) will pie Marsters in the face if he doesn't give Batman $20. Well, the thing is, Batman has pies in both hands (and no, not cream pies, cherry pies), so Marsters has to put the $20 in Batman's mouth. And then he gets pied anyway... I then stop the video that I've been watching on my computer and move back to Usenet, surprised that they aren't talking about the new companion. Only they are, actually. I just needed to refresh.
So, as I'm waking up from this dream, I try to puzzle out Marsters as the companion of Eccleston's Doctor. And realize that both of them look rather emaciated and so would be an odd-looking pair. Then I finally came to my senses and realized, thankfully, that it was all just a dream. I mean, James Marsters as Rose???? ;-)
