    Also being discussed here (in the wrong forum, which I only now noticed because I read TCF via New Posts)...

    How is that the wrong forum. It is an alert for a program that won't get caught in a season pass.

    Just browse by channel for BBCA at 1:00 (or, since your clocks are messed up, 2:00).

    That's so perfect ... we are getting news about the new Timelord from the future (i.e., 5 - 8 hrs.)!

    The betting money (who knew betting houses had lines on the next Dr Who) is on this guy, Peter Capaldi

    Hope they are wrong cause I like the Dr. on the younger side.

    Well it has to be an older Doctor eventually. Otherwise we will have a toddler playing the Doctor :D

    Looked him up on IMDB out of curiosity-- extremely, erm, intriguing :):

    2013 World War Z
    W.H.O. Doctor

    That's the big secret-- The Doctor started an organization to keep the world safe from aliens and he named it the World Health Organization...

    Well, that's somewhat disappointing.

    Watching his Wikipedia page since the moment of the reveal has been hilarious.

    Every F5, text appears and disappears on the subject. People are putting it in in various places, people are taking it out because it's not referenced and cited. It's being snuck into various unrelated paragraphs. Changes are being made and reverted at a frantic pace...

    Edit: And... the page is now semi-protected

    I'm very happy.

    Then again, what do I know? I was very unhappy when Smith was chosen, and he almost instantly turned out to be my favorite of the New Era.

    But I haven't liked the youth trend, and I'm glad to see somebody buck it.

    I'm going to reserve judgement until I've had sometime to watch him in action. I've only regularly watched since the reboot with Eccleston, but each and every regeneration I've gone forward with trepidation and dread, just knowing I'm going to hate the new guy. Fortunately, I've been wrong every time.

    Edit: I'm glad they went with someone a bit older.

    Oh, I hope I'm wrong. Believe me, I do. It just seems like a stale, safe choice.

    Well, it's hard to say what kind of choice it is...we haven't even seen a cast photo yet.

    For all we know, he's going to be a transvestite super-soldier. THAT wouldn't be the safe choice! :D

    Seriously, though, as with Matt Smith, it's less about the actor than about how the actor approaches the role. And as with Matt Smith, at this point we don't have a clue.

    I'm entitled to my opinion.
