    I feel like it is probably the heavy story arcs that make his tenure seem so much shorter rather than the broken schedule of airing the episodes. His whole second season is s blur to me looking back on it.

    No, I agree.

    The split seasons are part of it. The heavy arcs in each season are part of it (because it makes the stories feel like part of a larger story). I also think it's the presence of Amy and Rory for such a long period of that that contributes to the feeling that Matt didn't have that long a run and was just getting started.

    The last week or so I keep thinking how cool it could be to cast Patrick Stewart.

    I've got a sneaking feeling it's gonna be Tom Ellis...don't ask me why I have nothing to back this up apart from a vague feeling...oh and the fact he won't be returning as Robin Hood in whatever show he's in (Grimm or something) because apparently he no longer has the time ;)

    (Edit. Apparently he might be in Downton...drat I thought my Starkers Sense was onto something...)

    I'm really sick of this personist agenda going on. We didn't need a person in my day!

    First of all, the photo of Sherlock is NOT. It's of ELEMENTARY, the CBS (USA) re visioning of Sherlock Holmes, NOT Moffatt's (BBC) version. This is wrong in so many places.

    After doing a (small) drop of checking, there is an ELEMENTARY crossover with Doctor Who (sort of). Sean Pertwee is joining the cast.

    I got to say that is interesting way to get people to read your articles. Though I don't think it would garrentee the readers will stick around. Elementary is pretty good though I think I prefer BBC's version

    While I'd be happy with an "older," more seasoned actor playing the Doctor, I'd be just fine with a younger man... As long as he played a more serious Doctor.. Smith is young and the script played up to that with lots of childishness and carrying on... I'd love to see the Doctor be a bit more sullen and serious, ala BC in Sherlock... I don't want the doctor to BE Sherlock, but just someone who has a bit more seriousness going on about him (which can then lead to humourous situations of their own)...

    As Lestrade, no less. Which led me to send an e-mail to a Sherlock Holmes mailing list titled "Sean Pertwee Is Lestrade!" (aping the Doctor Who Magazine cover headline for the new Doctor announcements).

    Doctor Who News believes Peter Capaldi is the front-runner now

    For those who may have forgotten, Capaldi appeared as Lucius Caecilius in Doctor Who's "The Fires of Pompeii" as well as John Frobisher in Torchwood's "Children of Earth."

    I would love this to be true for two reasons. One, I loved him in both of those performances (especially as Frobisher), and two, he's an older actor (55), which would be a nice change of pace from the last couple of actors.

    He's a great actor but I suspect that it's unlikely that they'd cast someone who's already played 2 roles in the Whoniverse.

    Besides, I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd be waiting for him to start going all Malcolm Tucker at the villains and calling them all sorts of imaginative swear-names.

    Oh god no. I think he'd be terrible. Would be interesting to see how he'd work, but overall, I think it's too much of a big risk.
