I liked Smith, but Eccleston was my favorite, too, and I'm excited to see Capaldi in the role. Both Tennant and Smith felt a little too young to be in that role, sometimes.

I'm happy with the casting, a confident move in a new (old) direction. I enjoyed Smith and will miss him, and am glad that as time goes by we are further and further away from the Tennant era, which pleases me.

But this is the cool thing about Who, everybody has a different view and everyone has a period they love and a period they hate Smile

I like the casting - he's a good actor, and I do think that he'll bring some much-needed gravitas.

My only problem is that I can't help but see him as Frobisher from Torchwood: Children of Earth. We'll see how he wipes that away as he takes up the doctor's coat.

Trying to avoid any preview/spoilers of the 50th and Xmas special. To much speculation out there.

I'm having a Dr. Who party at the library on the 22nd. I have a few things planned, but was wondering if anyone had any suggestion?

Any thoughts on the trailer and/or teaser clips that have been released?

Must say the trailer disappointed me actually. I can't imagine what the game-changer is going to be (I can't conceive of one when it's Doctor Who) and I'm still yearning for old Doctors to show up.

The one thing that I'm really looking forward to is watching Smith and Tennant play off of each other, because I think it will be great fun to watch. That being said, the trailer really doesn't give ANY clue of what the storyline might be, so it's hard to say if I think I'll enjoy it Smile

I'm still holding out hope for guest appearances by old Doctors and/or companions that Moffat has kept sooper seekrit.

You should get some blue fabric and attach it to the door! And then paint the Tardis on it! And then when people come into the room in the library where you hold the party, they'll all yell "It's bigger on the inside!"

Honestly, I'm not sure. Do you guys have much Doctor Who fiction? Maybe you could do a steampunk fiction tie-in so you'd have a more robust book display? The Doctor isn't really steampunk but it would still be fun.

I would suggest against doing custard and fish-fingers as snacks.

We went to a DW thing at a library a couple of weeks back, and one of the things they had was a quiz trail, with "books" (I think they were old video cases) mocked up to look like relevant books from the DW universe, and shelved in the relevant bit of the library, and marked with the relevant Dewey number.

So, a Dalek manual would be in the bit where they have car manuals, "1001 ways with fish fingers" would be in the cookery section, "Sontaran bedtime stories" would be in military history, and so on.

Each kid would get a sheet of paper with the Dewey numbers next to the list of "book" titles, and have to search the library for them (incidentally learning how to use the Dewey system as they did it). Each time they found a "book", they'd look in it for the (big, cutout) single letter stuck in it, write that letter down, and put the book back where they found it for the other kids. Then when they'd got all the letters from the books, do a word scramble with them to get whatever suitably Whovian phrase/word you've chosen.

My kid really enjoyed this.

Edit to say: DOOOO IT! re fish finger biscuits!
