I think Jodie will make an excellent Doctor:

Good choice. Good actor.

I've seen some naysayers making comments already.

But the fact that Missy has been in it for the last three seasons should have been a HUGE hint at the new direction. It was bloody obvious wasn't it?

As to the actual show I'll wait 'til I see what the writing and content is like before commenting on that.

Ridiculous choice.
Anyway there's been 13 doctors already- I always thought there were no more regenerations after that?

You haven't been paying attention have you.

''The old 12th Doctor regenerated to defeat the Daleks, Matt Smith turned young after the battle on Trenzalore, back in the TARDIS he said two lines for the new cycle 1: "This is just a reset" 2: "It's a whole new regeneration cycle" so Peter Capaldi was the First Doctor to be in the new cycle.''

So there...  ;D

Thanks- I thought Smith was the 13th (John Hurt no.12?)

As a casual viewer, I find all this fuss quite bemusing.

Anyway, here's the lowdown from the BBC - you may wish to take notes!

Peter Cushing anyone???











(Yes, I know that was a Hammer film spin-off that didn't take off!)

Didn't realise they were Hammer films- the great Peter Cushing did 2 and they were very enjoyable.
Funny how no list of Dr.s ever include John Hurt!

Yeah, but the brilliant John Hurt played "The War Doctor", and as the song says:

"War!

Huh!

What is it good for?!"
