From spin doctor, to Doctor Who, eh?

It won't be the same, though, without the rage and the swearing. Have to say, though, it bowled me a googly.

When the rumours began I actually guessed it would be him.

Shame they didn't take a risk and have a woman. It is 2013 after all.

He is a great actor, so I might actually watch one episode to see how he does it.

Guessing Benedict Cumberbatch was not interested, maybe next time.

I'm a woman but no feminist, I think it has to be a male Doctor Who, I don't want a woman it just wouldn't feel right somehow :D It'd be like having a woman 007, "I'm Bond, Jamima Bond"

In my head all I can see is the Doctor doing a full "Malcolm Tucker" at the latest baddies, and them saying, "Well actually, we'll give Earth a miss this time..."

I'd have gone for Tim Spalls lad (can't remember his first name).

Funny, he wasn't even mentioned as a possible... might be a bit below him as I think he's headed Hollywood way!

Just quirky enough for the role and he was great in Pete Vs Life.

i think i will be sorely disappointed due to it being a pre-watershed programme.
in my mind, its exactly as that youtube vid above, but in reality, it'll just be a gigantic tease......
:( sad face for no swears....

I'm still wondering why it is that Dr Who ALWAYS regenerates into the spitting image of a moderately-to-well-known British actor?

Is it so that he can walk through central London (as in most episodes) without causing too much of a stir? Though I do wonder what would have happened if, in his David Tennant disguise he had walked past a television shop when a Virgin Media advert was being broadcast...
