Chris Eccleston is Dr Who

quote:

Shallow Grave actor Christopher Eccleston has been named as the new Doctor Who to front the cult BBC sci-fi show when it returns next year.

Eccleston, who starred alongside Nicole Kidman in the horror movie The Others, will be the ninth TV Time Lord to control the Tardis in a 13-part series.

Liked him in Shallow Grave.

I really, really liked the guy from Withnail and I as the Doctor in the (otherwise wretched) one-off thing they did in 1999. I have to think that Eccelston has a higher profile as an actor than most of his predecessors when they took the role. And I trust the development team not to crap all over the franchise.

What the hell, at this point I'd take Paul Rubens in the role as long as they start cranking out the episodes.

But who's going to play Lister in the Red Dwarf remakes? That's what I'd like to know.

There's still life left in Tom Baker. They should bring him back. Pretend the Davidson/ Mcoy/ Baker years never happened then hand over to Eddie Izzard.

Eccleston is awesome. Especially when he played Iago in a modernisation of Othello a few years back. Phenomenal actor.

I don't like Dr Who

But as actors go, Chris Eccleston is right up there with the best of them

I know you guys hate when us Americans say this but he is an Italian American (his grandparents came over from Italy, they have and have passed along their Italian traditions ect), you’re much more built than him but have very similar facial features.
He is a young pilot who just started their family, very wholesome folk...aside from that any time he is around I think of jooo!

Tom Baker. He was the Doc when the episodes first started showing on American public TV, and his face will always be the one most Americans think of when Doctor Who is mentioned.

Also, from the American perspective, Tom Baker is the only one of the first seven who's had much of a career outside the role (Traughton's work in The Exorcist nonwithstanding).

What like a walking out of the shower type scene as if it had all been a bad dream?
Hmmm sounds somehow familiar Bobby!!

i wouldn't agree with that. When yank producers make shows from scratch they are not always bad. But there have been pretty much zero American remakes of British comedies that have been successful... the last I can think of would be "Till Death Us Do Part".
