After spending quite a while spinning an elaborate tale about Will Ferrell, some woodlands and a flat tyre, Schrab dropped a pretty major bombshell: “For real, I’m talking to the BBC on Thursday”, he said.
“About what?” the podcast hosts queried. “Oh I don’t know…” Schrab jokingly replied. “Wait, what do you mean like, what?” the hosts continued. “There’s a certain character that the BBC owns, and they’re asking we would it be possible if…” began Schrab before he was interrupted.
“Doctor Who?” they then asked – Harmon’s clearly a fan, given that he co-created the Who-esque Rick and Morty. Schrab opted to “Mmmmmmmm” in reply. It’s not exactly a wild guess, given that The Doctor has only recently been immortalised in plastic brick.
“You only do fancy eyebrow lifting if there’s a Doctor Who character…” the hosts argued. “Mmmm I don’t know what you’re talking about”, laughed Schrab. “That’s a crazy leak that you just leaked” the presenters pointed out. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” the director maintained.
“He just told us the first 26 pages of the movie!”, the Harmontown hosts cleverly countered. “Yeah, do you know how sued I’m gonna get?”
