    [Quote  by:  cybercolin] Before we go into meltdown - that sums up a rather bad day for me! First my team loses and now this.


    Are you a Rays fan Wink

    [Quote  by:  shockeye07] Just get back in from a meal with my wife celebrating my birthday, put the TV news on, & WHAM ! David Tennant is quitting. What kind of birthday present is that ? Sad though the news is, we still have DT as the doctor for another year & as he said himself for people like us he will always be the 10th Doctor.


    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    [Quote  by:  Idiom] The role of the Doctor becomes available.
    Russell Brand resigns.
    Coincidence?
    I don't think so.


    I'll take full credit if they do!

    But on a serious note, do you think the production staff KNEW he was leaving a while back, and the rumour (SPOILER ALERT) of a future Doctor featuring in an episode and helping out the 10th, has already been cast and played out. I mean, they cast David Tennant WAY before the news of Chris Eccleston leaving was announced, maybe they're doing the same here?

    Now comes all the exciting speculation of who will be the next Doctor. I would like to nominate an actor by the name of Benedict Cumberbatch. I first saw him last year in a BBC drama "The Last Enemy" & thought he had a sort of young Peter Davidson vulnerability about him & thought he would make an excellent Doctor. Who ever it is I look forward to the excitement of a new Doctor, while mourning the loss of the old.


    How about Thomas Sangster from 'Human Nature/Family of Blood' he is just 18 now but by 2010 will be 20 or 21.

    Making him the youngest Doctor of all.

    One possible silver lining here is this....

    For those of you (like me) who enjoy Multi Doctor stories, I think the chances of David Tennant coming back in the future to reprise his role as the 10th Doctor are a lot better than the chances of Christopher Eccleston or Paul McGann. DT has said himself that he'd love to do a multi-doctor story but didn't think it would work practically at the time considering the age of past doctors. Now that HE'S the "past doctor" would he consider it? I think possibly!

    Just trying to put a silver lining on the cloud that is this news!

    As for Thomas Sangster, like Daveac suggested, he's a great actor, but I still think a bit TOO young to be the Doctor. I'm not sure he could carry the gravitas of a man who's lived hundreds of years despite his appearance.

    Latest in the running according to the BBC, although to be honest I think they're just paraphrasing the OG forum.

    [Quote  by:  Idiom] Saddened cos he was so damned fantastic. Excited cos this is what the programme's always done!
    Three favourites announced on the ten o'clock news: James Nesbit; David Morrisey and Paterson Joseph.
    I favour the last as I feel the first two are too big for the role.


    Just listenned to a David Tennant interview:-



    Interview Video (EDIT - don't know if this works outside the UK)

    And David says - he has done 1 special (the Christmas one) and then he's doing FOUR MORE!! - so that's 5 in all - not 4 as we thought!!!!

    Cheers, daveac


    It was always my understanding that there would be four episodes next year as well as a Xmas special this year!!!

    I am in two minds about DT leaving. On the one hand I am sad about the end of the tenth Doctor and a little apprehensive about a new Doctor but that is par for the course for a Doctor Who fan.
    On the other hand, after the end of Season 4 I have felt that it is his time to go as I am not sure what else he could do with the part. He has shown every emotion he can ranging from great joy, to sadness, anger etc. His Doctor has had to contend with far more emotions than any other Doctor has. So,as with RTD leaving, for the good of the show and to prevent it from stagnating I feel it is good that he goes... And we still get 5 more adventures with him. But when he does go, I will miss him... He was one Hell of a Doctor and a great ambassador for the show!!!

    Always get out while you're ahead of the game. It would have been such a shame for us to have been arguing that he stayed too long in a few years time. As it is, I don't think I've seen one negative comment about his overall performance as the Doctor. Good luck to him, I say! And thanks for all the fish!

    Jesse Spencer as the Doctor
    Robert Carlyle as the Master

    And I'm looking forward to "The Four Doctors" even though it's probably never going to happen!

    (love the idea of Jesse Spencer, btw)

    What I really don't understand is why some of the names being put forward are for people who have appeared in Doctor Who already - in fact the big contenders according to the bookies. Morrissey is in the 2008 Christmas Special; Patterson Joseph was a complete git in the last part of Eccleston's stint, Tovey was in the 2007 Christmas Special.

    I'm really hoping that it'll be someone who is known but not KNOWN like Bill Nighy.

    Heck, maybe it's time for a Welsh Doctor: Rhys Ifans anyone? (well, as long as he washed and cut his hair)

    supremacy is relative

    Heh, unfortunately this can't really be called a spoiler as it's made it to American newspapers already. Damn that Associated Press! And to me, that's the only bad thing about this. When it happened, I wanted it to be a surprise. I'm still holding out for the possibility that this is deliberate misinformation, so that he can, in fact, come back for just long enough in Series 5 to make it seem like it was all a joke, and then—wham!—get cut down in episode 2 by something perfectly ordinary.

    Nevertheless, I couldn't be more thrilled. Between the options of DT serving a year under Moffat and Moffat getting a completely fresh start, I'll so take the latter. I just hope the Moff goes for someone completely, completely different.

    I agree. I think a lot of the potential Doctor replacements mentioned here are chosen because they've all played characters that we'd like to see Doctor-ized. I think Moffat has established himself enough as a great Who writer that he doesn't necessarily need somebody established or even semi-established. Pick somebody that wasn't even on our radar. I have no doubt that Moffat's Who-dar (sorry..pathetic attempt at creating a new word) is tuned enough to pick somebody we'll all be pleased with.

    For that matter, David Tennant can credibly return to Doctor Who for the rest of his natural life, no matter how age affects his appearance.
