    Yeah I know, and people can play against type (one of the reasons I would like to see Sean Pertwee have a crack is that I've seen him play vastly different people). and actually given the choice between Statham and Elba I'd go with Elba because he is actually a better actor. Statham's great at what he does, but one of the best things about it that he understands his limits.
    Perhaps we should have a nightmare casting thread?

    Danny Dyer anyone? :p

    The irony of your statement is that when Moffat took over it was RTD who was the villain and Moffat who could do no wrong.

    I prefer Moffat's stories myself. "Blink" was my favorite episode of the Tennant era. I just felt that Moffat's Doctor is always building up to something, which gets me through the more mundane episodes. I never really felt that way with most of Tennant- we just have lots of people to deal with over a short span of time.

    I also prefer Smith over Tennant (blasphemy, I know), because I felt that Smith had another level more than Tennant. I always felt that there was a deep sorrow to Smith's doctor, and he could play every emotion perfectly. I hope they can find another actor with incredible range.

    And now I'm picturing Jason Statham doing Venusian Akido. "Hai!"
