Hey just found out that Christopher Eccleston will be playing a character called Claude who has the ability to be invisible and he will be Peter's mentor. Eccleston will teach Peter how to control his powers!!

Eccleston will be on the January 22nd ep!

Yeah, I read about it in TV Guide, in their 2007 SciFi Preview.

This sounds like great news. I miss him as the doctor. and of course this suggests Pete will have active powers to control... which is very good news.

I can't wait to see how this plays out. Bringing him onboard was a great decision IMO.

how do you see an invisible man? o.o . For all we know, Christopher Eccleston may not be playing the invisible man in some episodes o.o

Well if we can't see him then we have to definately be able to hear him!!

Plus also we know that in episode 11 "Fallout" sumone will die, if Eccleston is Peter's mentor then it means that Peter won't die!!

As I pointed out in a different thread, having an Invisible Man named Claude is a blatant reference to Claude Rains, the most famous of Invisible Men.

I think we'll see Chris through Peter.. because doesnt peter use other heroes powers? Claude probably spent a few years of his life invisible and once he meets Peter.. a man who can probably see him because of his own powers will probably explain why the two of them become good friends. They both will help each other out.

That is what I thought when I heard the news that someone would die. Peter's character is really interesting and I really think that the show could go somewhere with it. I did not think that he would be the one to die, but it is good to know that he will not.

But although so far www.9thwonders.com is the official fans site, remember IMDB had written that Sean Bean would play Sylar, and that not the case!! So I don't really know what to belive at the moment!!

Agreed! Although I do like the the powers of sum of the characters like Nathan, Hiro Nakamura, Claire and Niki (ERRRR, ONLY JOKIN - HER POWER IS THE SHI**EST POWER I'VE EVER SEEN, ITS NOT A POWER BUT SCHIZOPHRENIA, HAHAHAAH). Anyway we don't really know the extent of Peter's powers, we don't what he does, we do know that he can't control the powers so who knows maybe he actually does absorb the power permanently and then he doesn't have to be near the HERO to do what they can do and he just doesn't know that yet!! WOW!

So yeh he can't die, in my opinion he is themain character, but nowadays you never know they may kill off the main character, like they did on "Vanished".

But yeh I'd like to see the extent of Peter's powers! Je'voudrais!

God, if there's one thing I hate its people who go around asking for spoiler tags. Time for some self-loathing, then. Mind changing the title of the thread to take out what Eccleston's role will be? I've been trying to go as spoiler-free for my shows as possible for this round of seasons, just to try something new.

Thanks!

Niki has Jessica & Jessica has superstrength. So Niki *technically* does have a power.

I watched the early eps of Vanished but it got canceled here I believe so I never continued watching it. Same with Kidnapped although I never watched Kidnapped to begin with.

They aired the final episodes of "Vanished" on the internet!! Its not bad, but a bit wierd, poor Eddie Cibrian, seems like every show he's on gets cancelled!!

:( Why did they have to make him all scruffy and not sexy? CE is dead sexy & talented, let him show both!

Although, I'm not complaining too much, it is wonderful to see Chris getting more screen time!
