Should have gone with an older guy, like Bill Nighy in my opinion, would have been a nice contrast after Eccleston...

You know what they should do? Have Tom Baker play The Master. I mean there is nothing to stop a different time lord taking the same apperance, and how cool would it be to see the Dr. Who back as a bad guy...

Yeah, but he's a fairly portly guy, these a days... Check out "Monarch of a the Glen" onna the BBC or PBS to see him inna his glory now. He may be a too heavy to play a the heavy, eh?

Holy shit! The Doctor dressing posh again? Fuck I may start watching this now. I couldn't stand the idea of the Doctor wearing a black leather jacket. Yes, I realize how petty that is.

I loved the new series.

It's Dr. Who.

They stayed pretty respectful to the classic series, changing certain things for vaild reasons (bringing in a new audience).

hopefully, they can go back a bit, make the dr. more familiar to die hard fans and retain their new audience, now that they've got them.

and billie piper is staying on for the full season, and she was the best thing about the last season, imho.

BLASPHEMY ALERT

I was never really that big a fan of Dr Who, it was ok but it bored me a bit too and apart from one Sylvester McCoy episode where they turn in to cats or something, it never really scared me.

However, I loved the new series.
I think playing up the emotional aspects and making it more belieavble while still being total sci fi was a great idea.
Eccleston is one of the best actors around and RTD is just a TV deity.

I'm cool with a slightly more fey doctor than Eccleston and having seen Casanova I know David Tennant will appeal to everyone who liked Eccleston and to the Tom Baker fans too. Suitably nutty and charming.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.
