    The is running an article today concerning "backlash" that David Tennant felt he faced after it was announced he would replace Christopher Eccleston as the tenth Doctor.

    "I know everybody loved Chris and so did I, but hopefully I won't disappoint people," Tennant stated according to this article. He was dismayed when he read some of the negative fan reactions posted to the BBC site concerning his casting in the role. He laughs off the criticism, but admits that it will be tough to follow Eccleston. He's also looking forward to confronting the Daleks, but is unsure if they will be appearing next year.

    Actually, the vast majority of reaction I have heard from my fellow Whovians
    across the pond who are familiar with Tennant's work, is that they are excited
    about his casting as the next Doctor. I suspect that the positive reactions
    outnumber the negative ones by a good ratio.
