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.
on a side note, I have a client who looks a lot like you. I told his wife I was going to email her your picture (from the photo album).
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!

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".
