Well since we have Doctor threads now ;) I think we need to have a tenth Doctor thread. (I did a search and no-one seems to have started one).

So it is confirmed that David Tennant will appear as the 10th Doctor in a Christmas Special to screen in the UK. So how about posting in here when he starts giving your opinions of his portrayal. :)

Of course you can talk about your opinion's of him already if you like. :D

I'm trying to remember if I've ever been in this situation before, that I was looking forward to a television series because I liked the actor so much... probbably not. ;) I got the Casanova DVD the other day and loved it, and now I'm counting the days to Saturday so I can watch the next installment of Blackpool (which currently airs on a Belgian channel, CANVAS). David Tennant is a fine actor, and even if the Tenth Doctor turns out to be, say, as obstinate as the Sixth, I'll probably still like him.

I am thinking humour (of course) but also more heart like maybe the 5th Doctor.

No, me neither. I guess what I was trying to say is, even if they were to make him the most annoying *******, I'd probably still like him because it's David Tennant. :D But of course I'm hopeful, and pretty sure, they'll make him into a likeable Doctor.

Only half a month until the Children in Need mini-ep/scene/whatever it's going to be called. Can't wait to see it.

There is a short episode next friday for Children in Need. It involves the first conversation of the 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler and will then lead into the Christmas Special so it is a must see. But the Writers are keeping their cards close to their cheasts so now much is known except for the fact that it is their first conversation

(weasel indeed):cool: I think the Show is more important than the actor playing the Doctor but others may not be so accepting.

Well, although CE was a major art in what drew me into the show, the intelligence of the humer and scripts were refreshing. The show is, after all, for families, but does not talk down to the viewer. I know it will take a little getting used to, but thankfully, to clear the Doctor Who withdrawel symptoms I have been watching the old episodes from way back when TB was the Doctor, followed by PD, CB and SM, each of the caracters is very different, but the show itself never altered beyond the superficial areas of it, the heart (or hearts :p) of the show remained constant except for when SM came along, the show lost its lightness and began to take itself too seriously, but for that I blame the shows creators and not how the seventh doctor was introduced

I knew before I went, but I was surprised at the extra scenes he had. He was great! Had a whole lip licking thing going on that was more than a little creepy. One thing would have made it better, seeing him "kissed" by the dementors, seeing a fearful side would be cool as well as the evil side.

Sorry. I hang out more at the Outpost Gallifrey forum. The picture was discussed there. It's a bit hard to keep up with different fora and discussions, and remember where what was talked about already. :S
PD's birthday is April 13, 1951 (and with David Hewlett and DT at April 18... must be a good month to be born in, heh), so that makes him 54.5 years old now. Yes, he still looks very good for his age!!

The Star Wars/Lion King bit I could live without but they need to appeal to a wide audience so I guess some modern references not Dr Who related are fine, but not too many or that will get old.

Douglas Adams also wrote the unforgettable 4th/8th Doctor story Shada which is very good although its a shame they had to remake it with the 8th doctor instead of the 4th (originally Shada wasnt finished due to a BBC stike). But it is a brillient story.

Personally, I think DT will be fabulous... I can see him returning to the hammy roots of the first two doctors... I am hoping for more humour this series. Dark is good but humour whether "hammy" or not is part of Dr Who. Usually it is secondary so it doesn't take away from the story, I don't think Dr Who has ever gone with the "funny" episode like say SG, much to be grateful for there. Watching the older series however it is not surprising to find yourself laughing at things that are not actually meant to be funny. :p :D

I predict Tennant will be a great Doctor, I just hope I don't get the urge to slap this one. :P :cameronanime12:

Have to say really did love David as The Doctor in "New Earth" and when I watched the DWC and heard Russell say he was writing him as before that made me happy, I think Dr Who needs to be consistent but sure the actor also needs to bring something to the table and they have got a good mix there I think. I honestly didn't miss Chris and I think that is a good thing for the show.

The Signal
April 17th, 2006, 02:49 AM
To be honest I have to say that Chris didnt even cross my mind in New Earth, David just played the part so well I just didnt even think "wish the ninth Doctor was here" for an instant. I think this Doctor is going to have the darker side to him too, but I actually think this Doctor is more extreme in his personality, more lively and happy than the 9th doc, but he also angers much quicker, and he doesnt hold back like Chris did, last year we only saw the level of anger we got from David in the episodes "Dalek" "Bad Wolf" and "The Parting Of The Ways", should be interesting to see how far this develops.

Anyway. :cool:


To be honest I have to say that Chris didnt even cross my mind in New Earth, David just played the part so well I just didnt even think "wish the ninth Doctor was here" for an instant. I really think it is a good thing if people are not saying well he isn't Chris or he isn't as good or as this or that. I think Russell deciding to just write for The Doctor rather than strictly for the actor was the way to go. I have always thought that is what Dr Who does best, change the main actor but not The Doctor, not really. There have been touch and go moments but then in 27 years on/off air you will have that, but mostly you know where you stand with The Doctor.

He has always been rather dark in character, so that won't change thankfully with Tennant. ;)

Okay I have been wondering, am I the only one that thinks the Doctor seems more like the character David has made him into with his glasses on? I dunno, I saw the funky geek-chic in TCI and thought there was something missing, the outfit and the character werent the same, wheras the 9th Doctors seemed perfect as did the others before him (especially the 8th) on pops the glasses and the outfit suddenly fits the character perfectly. Odd huh, or is it just me?

I like the glasses too... but I liked every Doctor's dress sense probably except for the seventh doctor... but that wasn't his fault. I think the glasses do add to the overall look of geekiness.

Have I said how much I'm going to like David Tennant's doctor... ;) He really does look like he is enjoying himself tremendously. I watched the recent Doctor Who confidential and the crew commented that he quite literally bounces onto the set. It really shows.

I wish they would have let David use his Scottish accent, it is so nice and not thick so he is easy to understand, although I think it came through just a little in "New Earth" so maybe they are not too fussed about what kind of accent The Doctor has and I can't wait for the episode set in Scotland, where he tells Rose not to say "Ock aye!"

As for the older Doctors, I never liked the question mark thing, it was as if the characters name was Doctor Who, not the shows name, kinda going against themselves there. But I didnt mind Sylvesters outfit, it reflected his character well, but the 6th Doctors was too bright and colourfull, almost the opposite of him IMO.

Oh my you are COMPLETELY wrong :)(unless you have seen the new series, Im guessing you havent, in which case, I disagree with you :D)

This guy is an angry lil fella on one hand, but very light hearted on the other (much like the 9th Doctor but more so). Certainly not a pretty boy, actually more free and fun loving than the 9th Doctor (see Tooth and Claw's first 5 or so minutes for that one) you'll almost certainly like him. Oh, but he's a little rude from time to time, and he's not ginger, otherwise great! :D

I have been watching Who since late 1980, and I will have to tell you I totally love David Tennant in the role. I haven't been too terribly happy with the scripts for this season however (that Cyberman episode was terribly over-rated, although it was fun to see K9 again) and they seem to have put Rose into a lesser role.

But Tennant is fantastic! I was never a fan of Eccelston to be honest. I thought he was a little too....I dunno.....human to play the Doctor. Not larger then life enough. Too normal....so guy next door....

Whether the US gets to see series 2 with DT would be pretty much up to SciFi, they would be the ones to ask. *good luck getting an answer* ;)

As for Australia; well it really looks like a July start here for series 2, I had hoped this month but wasn't counting on a new mini series being shown in what was/is the Dr Who time slot; so that means July would be the earliest for it to start here. :( I guess it isn't so bad at least I will be able to concentrate more on SG/SGA by then. ;)

I am loving him.

To start, I was not enthralled by CE's Doctor so I guess it made the transition easy for me. I also realise this is Doctor Who and actors will leave, not this soon but it all went to making it easier for me to readily accept David Tennant as the new Doctor.

I love his sense of fun and almost at times child like approach to situations. Yes he is serious and a little OTT at times but you can feel his excitement when he strikes something new or when the light bulb goes off in his head. :D

Really if there was a word to describe his Doctor it would be fun.

Now I am hoping that in the next few episodes we start to see that darker side of his personality really come to the fore, the contrasts in his character make the show over-all worth watching. The Doctor (DT) going from smiling in an almost cheesy kind of way to suddenly angry or commanding. It is magic when it works. ;)

I do hate the shippy nature to this regeneration it is even more prevalent with DT then CE but I can live with it if only because we know companions come and go... ;)

Over-all highly interesting Doctor and I can't wait to see more, and to think we really have only just started with him. It is only the second half of the series and he feels so much like The Doctor I can hardly believe the mantle has been past and taken up so well, so soon.

Well I haven't seen any of DT's run yet (being in the US and all) but if first impressions are anything to go by (given the ten seconds or less at the end of the 'first' seasons finale) I might have to give up watching the show.

I realize that's extreme but even with CE it was a close call - it just didnt pull me in like SG1/SGA or BSG - and I used to watch Who consistently when I lived in England.

Is he really all that (as suggested by comments in this thread)? I thought CE was just what Doctor Who needed and if this thread is anything to go by it sounds like they've regressed.

Well, I think it boils down to the kind of Doctor you're expecting or partial too. I liked Chris and I like David. Eccleston was a rather darker or more serious doctor and Tennant, IMO is much more vivacious and enthusiastic. Personally, I didn't think anyone could take over from Eccleston... at least not after such a short stint but I think Tennant has really embraced this role... joyously.

When I saw the final episode of series 27 I was worried, and the last Harry Potter movie didn't help. DT's role was small and well done, but I just could not imagine him as the Doctor. Then again, this is my first change of the Doctor.

Now, about halfway through series 28, I love him as the Doctor. I thought that it was going to be hard to let go of CE, but I was just watching my series 27 DVD's the other day, and when the regeneration happens I just started laughting when DT's face came in because I enjoy his version of the Doctor so much.

I just wish that the show produced more than 14 episodes a season. There isn't enough good scifi on right now. Oh well. At least I can get ready to order Series 28 on DVD.
