    It'll be interesting to see how he interprets the role.

    Let's hope they put him into a contract, so he doesn't jack it in after one series!

    Tennant is supposed to be a fan of the old show - Eccleston has stated that he wasn't - so I've got a feeling he may be more willing to stick around a little longer than Doctor #9.

    As long as he doesn't spend every episode wide-eyed, gurning, nodding furiously and saying 'excellent' just like a 5-year-old after his very first Sherbet Dip, we'll all be laughing guys....

    Hopefully a Doctor to remember....

    Unfortunately I bet Russell T Davis will still write the scripts.

    I haven't seen Casanova, but from the previews he looks a bit of a drippy chinless wonder. Not very Dr Who.

    Sylvester McCoy got the part, so let the new guy have a chance when he starts. Is it me or does Ecceleston come over a bit yobish.

    He was not much good either but funnily played him very good in the TV Movie.

    Yes a bit chavish although a good guy :D

    Casanova was quite fun, actually - watch it if you get the chance.

    Tennant is actually rather a good actor, I think. He's naturalistic enough that you don't always realise he's acting. I'm curious as to whether he will make the Doctor scottish. :)

    Sylvester McCoy's Doctor certainly had a Scottish accent! :)

    a bit off topic but i think Derren Brown would make an excellent "The Master"!

    No.... Simon Pegg has definately got to be the new Master - he'd be brilliant! :thumbsup:

    Simon Pegg is a highly effective comedy writer ("Spaced" has moments of sheer genius, and they can't all have been written by Jessica Stevenson), but his skills as a performer are distinctly second-rate, IMO. Derren Brown is an interesting suggestion.

    Personally I'd like to see Tom Baker as The Master. :) (He has actually suggested this himself in a couple of interviews - possibly not seriously).

    Or Ian Richardson.

    or Alan Rickman.
    Yes I know he wouldn't, it's just a thought.

    Here's what would be a good spin on the Master - how about Paul McGann!

    That the Master has re-generated into one of the Doctor's former selves - that could be interesting!

    God, I hope she drops the Huddersfield for something a lot less grating.

    For the Doctor I think she's already dropped something.

    Nah, I like a northern accent on a lass. It's got a lot of character.
