A Withnail and I sequel on the cards? It was the lead role in the 1987 classic that put Grant, then a jobbing thespian, on the map.

It's not the first time he's been involved in the show. He played the Doctor in 2003 online animated series Scream of the Shalka, and starred as the unofficial "Tenth Doctor" in a 1966 Comic Relief sketch.
