The next Dr. Who


Dr. Who is one of the reasons I'm glad we have BBCAmerica. I wonder if the original creators of the series back in 1963 ever envisaged that it would continue as long as it has? Having the hero be able to die and regenerate into a new body obviously helped!

David Tennant announced this week that he is leaving the Tardis and will not be playing the role of a Time Lord in the next season of Dr. Who. His successor has not yet been chosen, but there are plenty of good actors to choose from. I suppose it's extremely unlikely they'd choose a woman! Of the contenders suggested on the BBC website, I think I like the looks of Paterson Joseph and David Morrissey. Whoever gets the role, I'm glad the series will continue for yet another season.

Personally, I'd love to see it go to Sean Pertwee. I believe his name was bandied about when Eccleston quit, and his father was my first Who...

I watch this on the Canadian channel CBC, but have missed all of this season because of High School football games. So glad it'll continue even if David Tennant isn't The Doctor though.

I'll be sorry to see David Tennant go but at least we'll have a few more 'specials' to look forward to at Christmas and next year.

I can't believe he's leaving, but I's quite like to see James Nesbit take over the role. Paterson Joseph would be a fab choice too though.

Oh, I really wish we had BBc America!! I love Dr. Who! I haven't seen it in years!
