I'm surprised people didn't see these qualities in number nine.
I had a hard time watching Nine. I just couldn't help feeling like Eccleston didn't want to be there.
There's "something of the night" in every Doctor. Four had his deadly serious moments, too, so did Three and One was officious and dour for most of his run.
I'm only reacting like this because it feels to me like people have too easily forgotten that there were eight other Doctors before the crop we're discussing, and the newbies are all light-years behind a couple of the old guard in terms of sheer awesomeness. In my eyes, that makes the debate about whether Nine, Ten or Eleven is better or more mature or what have you pointless. None of them will ever match up to Four. None of them will ever match up to Three.
(deep breath) Rant over. Back to the sub-topic.
There's been a Regression of maturity. Nine was most mature, but with a frat boy streak. Ten's maturity came with screeching and whining. And Eleven...sorry...is a man-child with ADHD. It's just blatant.
I'm sorry but I don't remember any of the old ones aside from their faces. No memory of the way they acted. I can only speak of what I do know which is the last 3. Rant all you like, that's the way it is.
I'm fairly certain you've been watching a different show for years now.
I don't disagree with the sentiment at all. I just see his name misspelled often on this board. Which always surprises me.
It only appeared in the credits like 12 times, that's nowhere near enough repetition for me to remember it.
I've seen it spelled with the extra "e" so many times, I have to stop and think every time I write his name, LOL
Exactly. Now if he'd done like ten or eleven seasons....
No, that's just you being lazy.
Honestly, it can't be that taxing to look it up when you mention him.
If you think misspelling Christopher Eccleston's name is bad, have I got a story for you.
Last summer I attended a sales presentation given by BBC America to their Doctor Who licensing partners. The presenter from BBCA, who was very enthusiastic, kept referring to the actor "David Ecclestein" as the actor who portrayed the Doctor before Matt Smith. It was all I could do not to laugh.
Heh, definitely not a fan of the show. Tennant's last name is the easiest to remember David "10"nant
I would've just laughed. If he can't be bothered to get it right...
Good lord, Man...it's called A JOKE! I shouldn't have to include five hundred smilies with a statement that is obviously me JOKING!
Yes, I would have liked Eccleston to stay in the job longer. Of course I could look up his name if I want to.
It. Was. A. Joke.
Maybe if he stuck around we'd have figured out how to spell his name.
He must have been thinking of Doctor Jew.
oh God, I'm gonna get the hate mail now
Something of the shite more like it.
What's that even supposed to mean anyway? He's not Michael Howard.
Wish I bloody had been.
You still have that option.
Could you be a little more precise? I'm not sure if you're joking or not. Thanks!
Agreed, on both counts.
Nothing's stopping you.
Since this show never has anything constructive to say, everyone dismisses it as a monotonous, one-trick pony with no style and no substance, no plot development and a large degree of immaturity. The previous regeneration was equally long on promise and short on delivery.
