Read Derren Brown's GQ Interview

December's British GQ includes a great Q&A with Derren Brown, which you can read at: GQ. Here's my favorite exchange from the interview:

Who owes you an apology? 

Nobody. I do appreciate it when people say sorry, or thank you - it bugs me when they don't. But people fight their own battles and generally operate in the way they think is best, and if I had had all their life experiences up to the point that they did whatever annoying thing they did, I imagine I'd have acted in the same way too. And if you walk around with a self-pitying narrative about your life that includes people who owe you apologies, you need to reconsider. 

As always, most of DB's answer are tongue-in-cheek.

Derren Brown Doctor Who Tweet

Back in June, Derren tweeted "I'm probably not supposed to say this, but I am the new Dr Who."

There will be a new Doctor Who (Matt Smith is leaving and being replaced in the 2013 Christmas episode), but Derren is obviously joking in the face of rampant fan speculation.

Casing Derren Brown's Next Crime Scene: The Secret Gallery

News outlets have been reporting that next Friday's Derren Brown special will have him conducting a theft of a painting from art collector Ivan Massow in London. If you stop by the news section of Massow's website, you can see a mention of the DB special, and pictures of the gallery where the heist will apparently occur: Massow gallery. The page includes a picture of Derren at the gallery, as well.

When is Derren Brown's The Great Art Robbery on Channel 4? (and predictions)

The Great Art Robbery will air next Friday, December 13, 2013, at 9 pm on channel 4.

Any guesses about how DB will train a group of pensioners to steal a work of art (from an art collector who has been warned of the impending theft)? The concept sounds like Derren's past special, The Heist. Based on advance publicity, though, this time I suspect the crime will rely on the fact that people overlook the elderly.

My best guess is that DB's thieves will steal the painting in broad daylight, surrounded by other museum goers. They will go unnoticed because they are elderly, thereby making Derren's point about how we should pay more attention to the older members of society.
