    Never been a LotR fan but I'll be watching this for McCoy, my favourite Doctor!

    Is his part substantial?

    He's never had any complaints!



    Thank you, I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.

    Radagast is strictly a supporting character. He appears very little in the book and extra material so it's hard to say how much of a role he will have in the film (or films, we don't even know if he's just in the first one or not).

    It's bigger on the inside.

    Given that they're taking a book that could easily fit into one film and have padded it out to THREE films, I suspect every character's part has been beefed up, including the ones who don't actually apppear in The Hobbit...

    Especially when they've already said that they suspect that Radaghast will become a fan favorite.

    I certainly hope so. It'll be really nice to see McCoy's career get such a huge boost.

    This. Along with Tom Baker, I grew up on Sylvester McCoy as The Doctor and for many years remained my second favorite Doctor. Troughton, Smith and McGann (via the audios) have recently surpassed him but his Doctor remains very special to me and I'm absolutely thrilled by this role for him.

    I'm torn. I really like the guy who seems to be a nice and clever bloke, but to say the least, I've never warmed to his particular brand of acting and I've yet to find him convincing in any role. Maybe he'll be amazing in this, who knows?

    I didn't enjoy him when he was playing The Doctor in the lead on BBC, but I did enjoy his brief and final appearance in the 1996 Telemovie.

    I hope he's good in this but I don't think he would have been any better than Ian Holm as Bilbo in the previous movies.
