Here we go again...

I am, of course, massively avoiding spoilers as always, but I would just like to wave at the BBC, and point out that I've been patiently waiting for Paterson Joseph to get the role of the Doctor since 1996. So, once again, hint hint.

*hopeful expression*

I want Eddie Izzard, first transvestite Doctor Who!

This is so funny!!

Have you seen "The Green Death"? I'd recommend it.

One great thing about classic Doctor Who DVDs is that if you wait long enough, Amazon usually sells them second hand for a couple of quid!

trust you to have that screencap LOL - Paterson Joseph's the one in Parting of the Ways, isn't he? So far I'm not liking where Moffat is taking Who, I haven't been a big fan of the most recent series, I'm not crazy about Matt leaving since I think he's been better than his scripts most of the time, and I don't like what I've heard about the 50th.

Oddly enough, I didn't have that picture for the Cleaning Lady Doctor. I had it for Mike and his bucket. It was a meme on Outpost Gallifrey years ago. Damned if I can remember what it was about!

Matt Smith has been the best thing to happen to Who in a long time, imho. I wish we could keep him a while longer.

ETA: Yes, Paterson Joseph was in 'Parting Of The Ways', as a slimy quiz show contestant. It's "Neverwhere" that made me want him as the Doctor, though. He's really great in that.

I think Paterson Joseph is now too famous to be a new Dr? A non-white Dr would be nice or a female companion who isn't a girl of our times. I'm not daft enough to bother with it's going to be a woman stuff, they say that every regeneration.

Is he any more famous than Eccles was? I am terrible at knowing who's famous, but I don't think I've seen his name in a while. And heck yes, a non-modern companion would be great. A non-female companion would be even better.

I think they were fussing over Joseph a while back so he's sort of "known" if not famous.

The press were touting his name as a possible Tenny-successor, yes. Leading to the predictable response! The Doctor can, apparently, easily change his hair colour, eye colour, height, voice, personality and age, but skin colour is right out...

Oh, hey, me too! Not since 1996 though, I doubt I knew who he was then.

Or Rachel Stirling. I know it'll never happen, but I can keep hoping.

She was good when she guested in the show recently. Maybe a bit too recently to return? Although I suppose it will be almost a year by then, and they had Freema Agyeman back almost immediately.

Part of me kind of wants Bruce Campbell, but that really is clutching at straws!
Jun. 3rd, 2013 04:59 pm (UTC)
Gah, has she? I've only seen three of this latest batch of eps. I will make a point of watching the others this weekend.

Hah, Bruce Campbell would rock it. Except I don't want Doctor Who Americanised. I'm a huge Eric Roberts fan from way back and I still resented the hell out of that movie. No, I'm not getting over it. America has enough shows of their own, AND they've already stolen Torchwood, they can't have this one too. *clings to show*

Yes, that film has a lot to answer for. For starters we might have got the show back a lot earlier if it hadn't been such nonsense. McGann was great, and I grew to really like his Doctor through all the books, etc. Roberts was good too, with what he had to work with; in fact all of the cast were good. It was still utter nonsense, though!
