Meh, I don't really like him. To HyperRobert Carlyle for the 11th doctor!

i agree with magic markers i reckon Robert carlyle would be a good choice. But he'd be a lot older than the two previous doctor so whether or not it will come off? hope so

I'm not sure how much more this show can take. The switch from Christopher to David worked because Billie was there as continuity. David grew on me, but the lack of Rose the third and fourth seasons certainly hurt (not to mention the horrible idea of abandoning the woman you love in a parallel universe with your clone). They better find someone to provide continuity in these next 4 specials...or they'll take a hit in 2010. My recommendation...the doctor's daughter...

that is how Doctor who works things change...it is fun...as long as they choose a good actor as the next doctor then things should work out just fine...and i agree a little continuity would be nice
