Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

As far as I remember the rumblings began on the Friday before he was announced on the Saturday. The big difference was we did at least know for sure a new Doctor was going to be cast, even if we didn't know who it was.

^Yeah, I seem to recall that people were taken totally by surprise when Smith was announced, since they couldn't believe that someone so young and obscure would get the part.

I know I never heard the name "Matt Smith" before his casting was officially announced.

Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

I remember first seeing him on dr who confidential, and I was round a freinds house with other freinds, and one freind said "he's nowhere near as good as the old doctor", and I thought why not give him a chance, and when I heard he was going to wear a long leather coat, I thought "ok, he's gonna be cool!", and this was before I knew the tardis and sonic screwdriver and so on were changing, so i thought the whole idea suited the show. A while later I first saw the doctors bow tie and geography teacher outfit and I approved. When I saw Smith in the brief scene in the end of time, I instantly thought this guy's crazy, he's so gonna become my favourite doctor, how wrong I was. I blame Moffat.

Bt still, hope with doctor #12. I hav a feeling Smith will last a while longer though.

I'd actually seen him a few years earlier in The Jewel in the Smoke with Billie Piper, but I didn't realize that until I read it somewhere, because I hadn't remembered the name or much else about the production (except how lame it was to do something called The Sally Lockhart Mysteries and just have Sally stand around while her sidekicks did all the mystery-solving).

Similarly, my reaction was 'Oh, it's that guy from Party Animals. Didn't know that was who Matt Smith was." Even though I'd had to caption a Party Animals photo of him a few months earlier...

And quite a few thought his own all-black ensemble he was wearing in that picture was actually going to be his outfit on the show, so he was labeled "the Goth Doctor" as well.

Conversely, when I saw the first images of Eccleston way back in late 2004 in his leather jacket and crew-cut, I thought, "Hmm, the production must want to keep the Doctor's appearance a secret until the debut."

Sincerely,

Bill

Oh yea... I had forgotten all about that, though now, that you've reminded me, and I think back, I believe most of those who surmised he would be Goth were happier about it than those who surmised Emo Teenager, LOL

Lazy choice by the Beeb - a chance to really shake up the character and they're sucking up to their young girl audience.

Pity.

Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

Back to the main subject, I think I found the site where Ben Daniels was rumoured to be doctor #12 here. I'd take this with a pinch of salt, the site looks very ameaturish, I think he may just be teasing and is probably whom he wants to be the new doctor.
