Christopher Eccleston IS John Lennon

Christopher Eccleston, The Ninth Doctor, is to star in Lennon Naked, a major one-off drama for BBC Four - see some footage from it HERE. The synopsis:

Lennon Naked charts his transition from "Beatle John" to enduring and enigmatic icon. It covers a period of wildly fluctuating fortunes from 1967-71; a time of worldwide adulation at one extreme, a combination of frustration and despair at the other.

Lennon Naked is due for broadcast in the Winter/Spring period

There is a strong resemblance to Lennon. It looks like it will be good.

OMG. And I don't use that abbreviation lightly. Chrsitopher Ecclestone posing for the Two Virgins cover on the BBC. Unbelievable. I don't know whether to be thrilled or horrified!

After seeing this, I'm now really looking forward to David Tennant as George Harrison in HANDMADE: THE REBIRTH OF BRITISH FILM...
