Liam (loda101) | 71 comments Well, we have a new Doctor, so who misses Matt Smith already?


Marie -The Reading Otter (thereadingotter) We have yet to see the New Doctor in action. I will make my decision about him after seeing him in a couple episodes. 10 is still my favorite.


message 3: by Lynne (new)

Lynne Stringer It's probably best to wait six or seven episodes before deciding whether you like him or not, maybe even a season. Sometimes it takes them a little time to settle in.

Ollie Bradshaw (sebastian-bach) | 52 comments Richard Ayoade should have been the new doctor http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/G...

message 7: by Colleen (new)

Colleen Palladino I really miss Matt, but Peter just seems right for the new Doctor so we shall see :)


message 8: by Novia (new)

Novia (novroz) | 236 comments It took one season for me to like Matt...will see Peter first before seeing I miss Matt or not


Marie -The Reading Otter (thereadingotter) I still miss Tennant.

Andy Elliott | 35 comments Both Matt and David departed with their characters on a high, which is why they will always be fondly remembered by fans. Had either of them stuck around an extra season we might have got a bit bored of them. Perhaps three really is the magic number?

I recall reading an excerpt from interview of Peter Davison (around the 20th anniversary with "The Five Doctors") that he had gotten advice from Patrick Troughton that about 3 seasons/years seemed to be the ultimate time to spend. The theory being you don't spend too long a time to get totally stereotyped as the character. I think it was just a way to say that the average tenure of the Doctor then as it is around now is 3 years.

But with a show like Doctor Who just one season or one episode as the Doctor could be enough to stereotype you in the eyes of the fans.

Lynne Stringer These days I think it's difficult not to get typecast as the Doctor no matter how long you stay! I think it also depends on how diverse and on the quantity of your body of work before taking on the role.

Allison Gallifrey Gill (gallifrey1963) | 5 comments Benedict Cumberbatch would have been amazballs,BUT he is Sherlock, not the Doctor...so that would have been tricky. I adored Matt Smith, wasnt so sure at first as I also adored Mr Tennant, but I gradually grew to love him and respect him for the part he played (and he played it darn well)Mr Capaldi was almost born for the part and has a lot to live up to. I will be giving him plenty of time before I make my mind up, but at the end of the day, the Doctor, whoever plays him is, in one word f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c.


GlitchObsession-Eridan's Matesprit (DontlaughIknowwhereyoulive) i agree comeletely!!!!


Chris/im a doctor who fan | 2 comments i like the new doctor


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (charlie_awesome) | 147 comments I think the new doctor is a good choice and I am excited to see his episodes.

I am upset that Moffat is continuing to be head writer, but maybe a change of doctor will liven things up.

message 23: by Greensparksjp (new)

Greensparksjp | 43 comments Abby, nobody ever considers Christopher Eccleston lol. Cuz Tennant and Smith were the doctor longer---we got use to them. I do like Eccleston, but not as much as Tennant and Smith :)

Don't forget the love of the Classic Doctors.


message 46: by Andy (new)

Andy Elliott | 35 comments Apparently we should expect the Capaldi's Doctor to be more "Scottish".

Who'd have thunk that?
