David Tennant will be a hard act to follow, but I'll keep an open mind until I see what they do. Unfortunately it looks set to continue the pattern of of having a bored and/or frustrated middle class woman who meets the slightly eccentric but charming Doctor who then whisks her off on a series of thrilling adventures. I can't shake the feeling they're targeting the same sexually frustrated audience that loves Twilight.
And in an odd bit of news, Mick Farren blogged yesterday about documents that have turned up which show that the Doctor's regenerations were modeled on bad acid trips.
“Internal BBC memos have revealed how Doctor Who's regenerations were modelled on bad LSD trips. Documents published for the first time describe how the Doctor's occasional transformations were supposed to convey the "hell and dank horror" of the hallucinogenic drug."
No wonder the Fifth Doctor was stuck in that wheelchair for so long after regenerating.
