    Good, really haven't taken to him, find him too manic. As for his current assistant, well

    The speculation begins about who will be the next Dr.

    I would like to see... Eddie Izzard, he would be great

    Bill Bailey is 50/1 in the betting, now he would make a fantastic doctor
    Benedict Cumberbatch is 6/1....

    I've only actually ever liked one series of DW, and that was Tennant; a guy I find particularly good at that and many other roles. He reminds me a little of Patrick Stewart for some reason.

    Benedict's getting into Hollywood action these days so unlikely he'll down grade to Doctor Who. Not sure who I'd like to see as Doctor, one paper suggested James Cordon, but don't think that will happen.

    Benedict Cumberbatch would be great but the doubt the plots would be good enough to attract him, there is something missing since Russell T Davis left which Steve Moffat just does have when it comes to doctor who.

    Steve Moffat has it with Sherlock, but some of the dr who storylines are so paper thin that they must have been using the original back of the fag packet ideas as lines.

    David tenant was great as the doctor as the plots has 4/5 different stories running through it and across multiple series, but now it seems the cross series plot lines are an after thought and there is only one main story that run through a series.

    A spin off of Dr Who with John Hurt as the Dr with no name would be excellent.

    A late night replacement for torch wood that had the swearing.

    This seems to come out every time there is a change of lead actor.

    Apparently it began when Tom Baker was talking in a press conference after announcing that he was leaving.

    He later said that he threw it into the mix to add some confusion to the process [put the press off the scent when they try to find the 'true' new Doctor]

    It's not surprising really. He'll go off like David Tennant and probably fail to have a Hollywood career, come back to the UK and wish he'd never left.


    It needs to be an old actor. Remember the doctor is getting very close to the end of his life, which was shown in the original run to be a steady degeneration with each subsequent regeneration - remember the Master with Tom Baker after Roger Delgado died basically a walking skeleton.

    I have no idea how they are going to get past that hard limit of 13 regeneration, in the past only the Time Lords can do that and as they are no longer around...? I'd assume it'll have something to do with that ridiculous scene a couple of years back with River Song.

    I seriously doubt they'd go for an old actor to be honest - the show is marketed at the young viewer, so having someone old won't be in the right segment for them.

    My guess will be that the new Doctor won't be white, as its about time they broke the mould a bit.

    Richard Ayoade, Adrian Lester or Idris Elba would all be good candidates IMO.

    Richard in particular!
