Re: The Doctor Who primer
I meant to ask this in a new thread, but this seems like a better place. I've only watched a few early episodes of season 1 of the new show on Scifi, and caught a new episode of season 2 last week.
Okay. Why was the actor for The Doctor changed after only one season? And why did they replace him, an actor who I really enjoyed, with a virtual clone of Martin Short that I personally can't stand???
I'd like to get back into the show, but honestly I really don't like this new guy!
There's no official for Eccelston's departure and I think Tennant will grow on you.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
