Co-producers of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) wanted to redub Christopher Eccleston (pictured right) with a Canadian actor,
Ho. Lee. Fuck. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.
Depends. If they intended to broadcast it in French in Quebec, it doesn't sound unreasonable to me.
Obviously they need to re-dub the dialogue to present the show in another language, but the implication of the article is that CBC wanted to re-dup it with a Canadian actor for the English version. After all why would RTD object to re-dubbing for the French version? For that matter, why would only Eccleston be re-dubbed if it were the French version they were talking about?
