Internet Rumors Re Doctor Who and Star Trek

There are stories that the BBC will be announcing the next actor to play the Doctor on Sunday. Some of the reports say that a live show will be simulcast in the U.K. and the United States. The leading candidate among the bookies is Peter Calpadi.

There’s another strange story going around that Netflix is going to take down Star Trek III because the Klingon translations aren’t accurate. The claim is that the translations will be corrected and the movie will be put back up. This did not come from The Onion, but I still find this one hard to believe. Even if Netflix did have their own in-house expert on the Klingon language, would they really alter a posted movie for this reason?

Update: The BBC has confirmed that the 12th Doctor will be revealed on a live broadcast on Sunday:

It will air at 2 p.m. Eastern time in the United States
