Yikes!  He looks like an '80s new wave singer.  How old is that guy?  Seems pretty young to be Doctor Who . . .

according to IMDB he was born 28 October 1982.  I'm curious who his new companion will be too, since I think he was pretty much alone at the end of Series 4.

I;m also wondering when we'll see the 4 specials they are doing on Sci-Fi.   The latest Doctor Who X-Mas Special was, ironically, called The Next Doctor.

Just add the red curly hair. slywink I keed I keed. I could see him doing a good job; initially I didn't like David Tennant.

I love the fact that each doctor (in the recent series) are distinctive and appreciable in their own way, but none come off as a Ken doll.

After watching the video, I think he could make a pretty good Doctor.   I hope he gets a different haircut though.

I'm actually more curious to see who they cast as his companion.  It would be hilarious to have a middle-aged woman who would incessantly mother him...would make for some comical moments.  smile

felt like an appropriate thread to resurrect as the search starts again:

Quote
The BBC is today announcing that Matt Smith is to leave Doctor Who after four incredible years on the hit show. Matt first stepped into the TARDIS in 2010 and will leave the role at the end of this year after starring in the unmissable 50th Anniversary in November and regenerating in the Christmas special.

The search is on?  But isn't it really

Spoiler for Hiden:
John Hurt??

I figured that would be a cool twist that would somehow get tied up neatly in the Anniversary ep.

Of course, with it being Sci Fi, they could somehow explain going in another direction.

Interesting.  I suppose I would buy that. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
It's not as though any of them actually called themselves 9th Doctor, 10th Doctor, etc.  Although we did see a number of moments where the Line of Doctors was shown, but I suppose if he suppressed the memory himself, it wouldn't have shown.

There's a list of possibilities being floated about in this article.

Helen Mirren and Rupert Grint were two interesting ones.  Grint could just wear his Winter Ball Tuxedo.  Idris Elba would be cool, too.

Martin Freeman was in there along with Cumberbatch, who, frankly, seems born to play the Doctor, but I can't imagine them getting either of them.

I'd say Freeman and Cumberbatch would be too busy even if they wanted to be in the show.  Idris Elba still has Luther plus a bunch of films.  Grint would be interesting, but I think he may be too young and I'd keep on waiting for him to shout 'Expecto Patronum' whenever he whips out the sonic screwdriver.

personally I think going with a female Doctor would be interesting.

Probably exact opposite of me there Ron

I used to Watch Dr Who all the time(Peter Davidson FTW!!...i loved the Question Mark motif everywhere)..until Sylvester McCoy came along,went right off it then

Tried with the new Dr Who with Christopher Eccleston(who i love,being a Salford Boy and all that),but it was a bit weird...something about mannequins coming alive after hours ..i just didn't get into it

I did see the Weeping Angels episode though,that was quite good,creepy as fuck as well!!


Just looked at the list of Doctors,Peter Cushing is not listed..how come?,is it because he just starred as the Doctor in the two films and not the tv series?..is he not an 'official' Doctor then?

EDIT; Nevermind....it seems the main list is credited as 'Doctor Who' while the Peter Cushing films are credited as 'Dr.Who'...wierd

Yeah, it's leaps and bounds over the classic stuff in terms of production values, story telling, acting, pacing...pretty much everything.

The old stuff had its charms, but the new ones are top notch.

Quote from: metallicorphan on June 03, 2013, 04:39:44 PM


The thing is, mo, the first couple of Eccleston episodes were kinda clunky.  They were still finding their voice.  It starts to click with an episode where Rose goes back to see her Dad.  Then we hit the first Moffet episode (a two parter) which also brings us Captain Jack and it just takes off from there.

So, KD and mo, go watch the new stuff from the beginning, but give it a few episodes to hook you.

I saw nearly every Dr Who episode until Sylvester McCoy (and the format made the very early ones were painful to watch; when they combined a block of half-hour broadcasts into 2- or 2.5-hour episodes, they brought along a lot of repetition and recapping, so the stories were very slow-moving). It didn't really hit its stride until Tom Baker. I dropped it after seeing a few McCoy episodes and never saw the guy who came after him at all.

It took me quite a while to get into the new reboot. Some of the episodes from the first two seasons were strong reminders that Dr Who is a childrens show. But the scripts picked up halfway through Tennant's tenancy, and now I think it's as good as it ever was. If I were recommending the show to a newbie, though, I'd recommend skipping the Eccleston season unless you're a completionist.

I may give them another try(i see most Doctor Who series new and old are on Netflix)

if i did i would probably watch the Eccleston as it's only one season/series/whatever=13 episodes..and to see Billy Piper icon_biggrin(not seen her for ages)

got shitloads to watch first though before i even consider trying them again

I do have to admit to having a special place in my geek heart for the great Tom Baker's portrayal.  I even had my aunt knit me a 15 foot long, multicolored scarf when I was about 13 that I then wore to every comic book convention I attended.  I was 90 percent scarf, 10 percent kid for about 3 years.

I did see some Tom Baker,but Davidson was where it took off for me(and Colin Baker in fact)

funnily enough i remember watching a lot of Jon Pewtree's Doctor as well(Before Tom Baker),but know him better as Worzel Gummidge

Absolutely.

Additionally, I'm not sure what episodes you were seeing that marked the newer Doctor Who as "a children's show".  It seemed clear to me that, right out of the gate with Eccleston, they were going for a more adult appeal.  

Not to say kids can't watch it, of course.  There's nothing necessarily objectionable, language, sex, or violence-wise, but some of the themes are pretty deep and a lot of the episodes are some scary shit.

I've heard a number of stories about kids hiding behind couches or running from the room, then peeking past the door jamb when the Daleks come on screen.

My wife and I just recently got our kid caught up (she's ten).  Now, for some reason, the Daleks don't bother her at all.  But the Cybermen have her pulling her knees up against her chest.  We almost skipped the first Weeping Angels episode entirely, but decided it was too damned good and too damned important.  She still gets creeped out by statues.  Of course, I thought the Hell-planet episode was going to do her in, but while she found the villain creepy, she wasn't bothered by it at all.

She was a little creeped out by the mannequins early on, but the gas masked kid asking for her mummy was just too much at the time.  We put our watching on hold for a while between episodes.  We finally decided that it would be better for her to get through to the other side of that two-parter, and she's been much better with Who since then.  However, seeing a gas mask in any other context now really sets her off.

She was a little creeped out by the mannequins early on, but the gas masked kid asking for her mummy was just too much at the time.  We put our watching on hold for a while between episodes.  We finally decided that it would be better for her to get through to the other side of that two-parter, and she's been much better with Who since then.  However, seeing a gas mask in any other context now really sets her off.



totally missed the Kid comment.  you sure you weren't watching the Sarah Jane adventures? slywink

I can't vouch for the later Eccleston Doctor Who episodes,but the first one i saw with the mannequins,Eccleston's Doctor acted like a simpleton at times,or always amazed at every little thing...maybe that is where Ironrod is coming from with the childrens show comment,as that is what i got from The Doctor in that episode,of course not the creepy mannequins though

I know I might be slapped for saying this, but I consider Eccleston to be the worst Doctor Who ever.
