The new guy seems like a really nice chap, I remember him in 'Secret Diary of a Call Girl' with Billy Piper and he was ok in that. He has a real love and respect for the show and looks-wise -is interesting and quite appealing -he kinda of 'has youth' but what seems like an 'old soul' which is spot on for the role.
My only gripe is I hope they are NOT trying to simply replicate Tennant. I'd like to see the new lad play the Doctor in a 'Dorien Grey' stylee with a bit of venom and playful arrogance.
If I could of picked the Doctor I'd of chosen an older actor again, perhaps someone in the forties - fifties. Like Philip Glenister, only he's in that piece of crap 'Demons' show that has just started. Bah!
My town 'Portsmouth' is known for being all Military and Naval, covered in forts and has lots of ships and is twinned with other towns all over the world. Also it's where Charles Dickens was born and is a rather important 'Historic Dockyard' that people visit to see things like HMS Victory, The Mary Rose and that.
I think it's about time for a fat, bald-headed guy in a seersucker suit to step up to the plate. What a fab Doctor that would be!
Yes, I would like a chubby timelord.
Strangely enough, I'm listening to Radio one now and lots of people are saying David Mitchell (from Peep Show). He's a little posh fat guy, pretty good actor and witty to boot!
True, I think 'anyone' covers that though. BUCK ANGEL as the next Doctor anyone?! :D
One weird rumour doing the rounds is that John Simm (who we last saw playing The Master) might be playing the new Doctor. I hope not.

Sorry if I wasn't clear (it was typed fast). Yeah, we saw McCoy turn into McGann but I mean we didn't ever see McGann's 8th Doc regenerate into Christopher Eccleston. So there is room for a Doctor (or lots) in between McGann (Doctor eight) and Eccleston (generally assumed Doctor nine. ;)
This Big Brother flavoured Zombie horror Halloween treat is utterly amazing and has shot right up the list of my favorite Zombie flesh eating movies/series ever!
It pisses all over Romero's rather lackluster and silly 'Diary of the Dead' -When I first heard about Dead Set I was only expecting something cheesy from channel four as a festive cash in but it's actually very good!
Love it, love it, love it. Gritty, gory and scary.
Jamie Winstone is really great in it as the hero-girl and seeing Davina McCall as a raving flesh chomping infected was ace!
Fast Zombies are so much more terrifying as well, I'm glad they went with those!
Second last part tonight, then the DVD is out next week!
If anything, change is one of the main reasons I love WHO.
I'm really glad to see Tennant leave (my favorite doctor by the way) but it's good to shake things up and there are TONS of great actors that could bring something new to the show.
I wonder what the new personality of our favorite Time Lord will be like?
James Nesbitt was hotly tipped to be the next Doctor, although today the radio said he says he wont be doing it. (Yay! Can't stand his work and dislike his voice.)
Robert Carlise (Begby from Trainspotting) is also strongly rumoured to be the new guy in the policebox.
Richard E Grant is another one people keep bringing up along with Rhys Ifans.
But I think it may actually be Paul McGann (the 8th doc returning) as Russell T Davis said recently that it's never been stated in the show what number Doctor Christopher Eccleston or David Tennant were playing. Therefore there may even be people (and new stories) in between McGann and Eccleston's adventures.
Also the newspapers here (a couple of months ago) leaked that McGann has been filming parts set after or during the timewar to be shown in the specials with Tennant next year....
My theory is that Mcgann will be doc for a little bit, dies and passes the torch to a new actor and we get a series set before the 'new Who' for lots of time loopy weirdness that's also right up (the new man in charge) Steven Moffat's alley!
Cue: Russell Tovey (who RTD loves big time and wishes was the next Doctor?!)
Or I may be completely wrong, lol! :P
I love the confrontation and Hybrid miniatures -they're really beautifully sculpted. Like many, I think the Wulfen brought me to Rackhams models.
I used one as a Chosen of Malar in a Forgotten Realms game. Players freaked when I placed him on the table! :D
I'd also say they are harder to paint than your average Reaper or GW mini as well, the detail on Rackhams figs is a lot finer in some cases and you really have to be careful, keeping the paints very thin.
I've read over the rules and I have to say it reads like a fast and dynamic system -maybe one day I will actually play! :)
This series is pretty dire IMO. The main character can't act and it's full of z-list celebs! I can't believe the guy from Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps is in it... :O
The announcer at Tournament of Kings is more believable and has a more rounded character than the drek in this. :P
NAUGHTY BBC, NAUGHTY!
So true. Bloodrayne even has a suckquel out now I think.
Watched the latest two eppys of series three today and was a little disapointed. So now they have introduced another old X-men plotline into the show...
And they've even introduced their own version of the Marvel character 'Gateway' by the looks of things. Also I'm reminded of when Karma (psionic mutant) got really over weight and was transported to the desert where she had to survive and became slim, lol!
Looking forward to the bad guys getting the spotlight though, should be fun. :)
