Whedon Still Open to 'Ripper'?

Back from the more ways than one. 
Um, Excuse Me?! Here's some exciting news in case you missed the part in the recent AV Club interview where Joss said he was still open to Ripper or a similar Buffy-spinoff starring everyone's favorite watcher: Anthony Stewart Head.

Here's what the Master said:
"The thing about Ripper—the essence of it—is that the BBC came to me at one point like, 'It doesn’t have to be Ripper. It can just be [Anthony Stewart Head], and there’s magic, and he’s Tony, cuz he’s awesome.' And that’s the thing: For some reason, he keeps getting sexier every year. That’s not happening to me! I’m like, “What are you doing?” And that story was always about a mature guy who’s lived, and about the choices he’s made. So you could make that now, or you could make it 10 years from now. And I’ve tortured Tony more than any other living human with, 'We’re definitely gonna do this!' Because I thought we were. He’s working so much, though, I’d feel too guilty. But that’s the thing with Ripper: It doesn’t go away in my head because he’s still right for it, and he could still bring it."

Yeah he could still bring it! And if our March Madness tournament from last month proves anything, it's that Ripper is still in the hearts and minds of fans everywhere. LET'S DO THIS PEOPLE!

Seeing Ripper come to life would be a dream come true indeed!


I truly mourned the loss of this most beloved Watcher. I would love to see some life in him again!
