In 1986 and at the age of 16, Simm went to the Blackpool & The Flyde College in Lytham St Annes for three years and starred in Guys & Dolls and West Side Story. However, he soon decided that musical theatre didn't interest him, so he joined an amateur dramatic group and honed his skills in his spare time, playing the title roles in Billy Liar and Amadeus to great local acclaim. He then moved to London and attended the Drama Centre London at the age of 19, where he studied the Stanislavski School of Acting, and graduated in 1992.

Plus, Simm plays guitar on the album Slideling, by his friend Echo & The Bunneymen singer Ian McCulloch. Simm also played lead guitar on a few of McCulloch's solo live shows, including one at Wembley arena as main support to Coldplay. Magic Alex released one album, Dated and Sexist, before splitting in 2005.

TV work includes; 1992 - T.V. debut in Rumpole of the Bailey, bit parts in The Bill, Heartbeat, The Locksmith, two series of BBC comedy Men of the World before playing a murderer in Chiller. 1995 - His breakthrough came in classic Manchester based drama Cracker, where he played troubled teenanger Bill Preece. This also starred future Time Lord Christopher Eccleston. He also made his feature film debut in Boston Kickout beating the late Dennis Hopper to the Best Actor award at the Valencia Film Festival.

Johnny Depp as The Doctor in Movie??

According to, Johnny Depp is to portray our much loved Time Lord The Doctor, in a movie version to be released in 2012! The script has supposedly been written by Russsell T Davies.

The rumour of an American movie adaptation of the classic British sci-fi series was originally raised when Russell T. Davies and show producer Julie Gardner announced their departure from the BBC revival of the show for Los Angeles in 2008 in order to develop projects for BBC America. Though both were mum on the idea of adapting Doctor Who for American audiences, it was eventually revealed that Torchwood was undergoing that very process.

This would be so wrong! As much as I am a fan of JD, an American can not and should not be allowed to take away the Britishness of our beloved Doctor! It would be a travesty beyond imagination!! NO! NO! NO! NO! So obviously an internet scam jokey thing!
