I don't really give a crap. As long as they get someone who knows how to play The Doctor and someone who knows how to write then I'm happy!
Moffatt's dropped 2 canonical references to it but no one else has before him, to be honest I suspect it's a way to keep people talking about a show that only manages to get 7-8 episodes out the door a year.Subscriptism said:Why they haven't chosen a woman? I don't know, CAN timelords even change their gender? Has it happened before?
He was pretty good, the problem is that the bbc moved the show from early Saturday evenings to weekday nights and people expected more from such a show in that time slot.Knight Captain Kerr said:I don't think Colin Baker was bad. But at the same time I don't think he is many people's favourite. But his clothes are hilarious.albino boo said:The 6th Dr is bad choice, he got the job because the then producer, Jonathan Nathan Turner met him at wedding. The 6th Dr is when things started to go down hill.
extreme snip, but it condenses the post nicelyQtastic said:black, or a woman, or what-have-you.
It's never been the writers choice about the changing the actor. The whole regeneration thing came about because the original Dr was to ill to continue and they needed a new one. Since then Drs have only stayed in placed, on average 3-4 years before leaving. One got fired and 2 went because the show got cancelled, the rest of the time the changes were because the actor left. Matt Smith has gone from being in the first change of cast in the west end production of the history boys to a hollywood movie directed by Ryan Gosling after 3 years as the Dr.FoxKitsune said:I wanted to see River Song take over being the doctor so bad. Without going into specifics and entering spoiler territory, they had the perfect opportunity to do so, and have her regenerate into any number of great british actresses.I'm not of the same opinion the writers seem to be, that to keep the show fresh they need to routinely change actors up, but if they're going to do it at least make it a real change. A female doctor would breathe a lot of life back into the show.
