New Doctor announced tomorrow
I’ve just been reading the rabid frothing on the Doctor Who forums; the next Doctor will be announced tomorrow BBC1 5.35pm, during Doctor Who Confidential (click here for more info – goes to BBC Doctor Who page). Eek! Well that was a surprise that they’re announcing so soon but not surprising really, wait much longer and it was bound to be leaked. I’m still hoping it’s Joesph Paterson, I don’t care about all the dubiously moralled nay-sayers going on about how “It didn’t work in Merlin”, piffle! If the US can have a black president, I think we can just about manage a black Doctor, everything else changes about the Doctor during regeneration, his hair colour, for example, changes, otherwise we’d have had ten white haired Doctors, so no reason skin colour can’t change. If it’s not going to be Paterson please may it not be a) anyone too young, early 30s an absolute minimum but conversely b) if not conventionally good looking (and you wouldn’t want too conventionally good looking anyway) have just a little bit of charm, so David Morrissey it would not. Ah whoever it is, I remember when they announced that number 10 was David Tennant, I was absolutely gutted, thinking he was a bit of a stringy dork, but oh I like a bit of a stringy dork now! So whoever it is, I have but just one concrete theory, it will be someone Stephen Moffat has worked with before (so could well be Paterson), mark my words and watch me be wrong!
