i was already aware of (and loved) tennant because of his work on radio - he was in a LOT of radio 4 things, and very good, and very funny a lot of the time. particularly fond of his work in Double Income, No Kids Yet.

Makes me wonder about someone like Julian Rhind-Tutt, actually.

Oooh, Julian Rhind-Tutt would be delectable! And ginger!!! Big Grin

I'm excited by several names that have been tossed around, but agree with Mark, Snazz and Domi - it probably won't be anyone pre-famous.

Everyone saying it shouldn't be someone super-famous: Mr. Neil agrees with you.

The Gutters suggests Alan Moore.

Although I personally think their Hulk Hogan suggestion is better. "Whatcha gonna do . . . when Daleks . . . run over you?!?!?"

This is apparently from a different interview, but although he's basically saying the same thing it doesn't sound so bad in this go:

quote:
Doctor Who
Will he be back for more? He works “really quite slowly”, and as Doctor Who scripts require many rewrites and don’t pay enormously well, he ends up having to do other work so he can afford to take the time to write for the Doctor. “But the horrible, awful truth is that I would probably pay for the privilege of writing Doctor Who,” he says. “It’s just that finding the time is harder and harder. They told me I’m invited back whenever I want to, and I’m really grateful. I don’t know if I’ll get one into the next series, or the one after that, or the one after that. But it’s more a matter of time.”

Just bumping the thread in case anyone has any thoughts about the new doctor. I recognized him from torchwood.

He's best known here from In the Loop and The Thick of It (those links are a must-watch, but NSFW or children Razz)

Which will make Twitter an amusing place when he starts Big Grin

I don't think they told anyone in America that In the Loop was based on a TV series.

I'm excited for this casting! It means I can watch the show again!! (Could not at stand Smith at all. His Doctor felt like a poor man's Tennant). Eccleston was my favorite of the new Doctors and I hope that Capaldi can bring back some of that edge that I have so missed.

I love Matt Smith 'cos he's so adorkable. He's young but he acts like a cranky old man. But I also won't really mind him going, it seems like the perfect time to do it.

I know very little about the new guy, but he seems snarky and I like snark.

The Doctor's still not ginger though. Smile

I guess I am not that concerned about the actor. I am more worried about how he gets written and the story lines that he gets.

I thought that this board might have jumped on the fact that he was the Angel Islington in the BBC Neverwhere tv show.

I was more intrigued in the fact that he was in a punk band with Craig Ferguson, actually.

If you missed the 'edge' then you really should have been watching Smith - he has it in spades. Sometimes his doctor positively makes me back away from the screen.
