One more series before I can watch again!  
I might start watching new Doctor Who again after next series...

- Russel T. Davies is leaving. YES.

- Steven Moffat is replacing RTD (he wrote The Girl in the Fireplace, Blink, and The Empty Child among other awesome episodes). SWEET.

- David Tennant is leaving, with this Irish guy possibly replacing him. Not more pretty-boy teenage girl fan service, yay! And he looks a little like my late uncle Kaveh, which is kinda nifty.

While I'm thinking about it, I'd love to have Dai-joon Kaveh show up at my front door with his TARDIS, apologize for the confusion- it wasn't suicide, he just regenerated, you see- and pick me up so we can go on adventures through time and space. He was extremely fun to be around, he would've made a great Time Lord.

I've seen him in stuff before; he was in Waking Ned Devine and Bloody Sunday.

Can I get Davies' head on a platter? Please?!?!?!

If we get a TARDIS, I doubt this will be a problem... ::maniacal tittering building up to maniacal laughter:::

Hello,I'm new.
Speaking as someone who saw the very first Dr. Who episode as a child,I don't have a problem with Tennant as the Doctor.
On the other hand,Davies is just plain bad.(I'm sorry,Sir,but,no,being a gay man does not automatically endow you with the ability to write believable female characters. Case in point:you.)
On the gripping hand,Nesbitt is an incredibly talented actor,and should be quite wonderful.

Re: Hello,I'm new.
Hello! ::waves, invites over for coffee:: =)

I honestly don't have a problem with David Tennant either. In the good episodes, he really shines, but sadly, those are few and far between. He's gotten saddled with mostly crap scripts. That, and I really dislike the Emo Doctor angle. (Rose, OMG! =*( )

I think what peeves me is that the choice to cast him was at least partially motivated by someone trying to attract the thirteen year-old hopelessly lovestruck girl demographic. This is Doctor Who- the goofy kitsch sci-fi should be what draws you in, not the heartthrobs cast as the leads! ;) I think he's cute, don't get me wrong, but I prefer unconventional cuteness. To that effect, I think Chris Eccleston is more attractive (and he sure knew when to jump ship, heh), and I also have an undeniable thing for Patrick Troughton. Favorite doctor ever ^_^

Re: Emo and Eccleston
Rose:safe and well in another place.
My entire planet's been destroyed.
Which is more upsetting?
Right.Maybe he doesn't write hetish men well either...

Heroes was so much better a role for C.E.,but he was a terrific Doctor.

Patrick Troughton
Alas,I didn't see A single one of those. But the actor's face was in my head when I read 2nd doctor stories.
To me The Doctor will always be a single charter.Some people prefer their first Who actor,or just take a fancy to one portrayal,but to me it's always the current(or most recent-NO! DO IT TO JULIA! MAKE JULIA LIVE WITHOUT THE HOPE OF WHO!)-one.
The eleventh doctor will be The Doctor when the time comes.(Eleventh doctor? Crikey! Time to come up with a new dodge...)

*Character. Although I suppose charter reads well too...I say,did you mention there was coffee?
