    I'm not sure whether it was his choice or the producer's choice... He does have quite a strong Scottish accent in real life. It's amazing how he does it though, I think speaking without his accent comes almost naturally to him.

    Yeah i imagine it is sometimes a pain, but it is part of his acting and therefore does show of his acting abilities. I think he chose not to use his Scottish accent because the other actors before hand no distinguished reigonal accent, i suppose Eccelstone in a way did.
    I've seen him in other dramas, and hes got a really nice voice where he uses his own accent. However i think it's clever that he can manage to talk in an English accent, it looks like it just comes natural.
    Maybe the producers also prefered him to use an English accent rather than this own? Dunno really!

    I'm perfectly chilled, thankyou!:rolleyes:

    Well, Tom Baker just had a weird voice. Ecclestone did speak with his own, unadulterated accent - born and raised in Salford ["lots of planets have a north!"]. The rest of the actors to have taken the role have had pretty normal English accents, Peter Davidson, John Pertwee, etc...
    Even The Master has moreorless always been stereotypically English, too.

    Oh i'm soooo sooo sorry. Didn't know we were studying English in this thread. My bad :rolleyes:


    An awesome scarf, yes - in your opinion.

    I'm probably over analysing this as pure usual(!)
    But just rewatching the scene where the original doctor leaves Rose.
    He says that he saved the universe at a cost and that cost is the clone doctor. And he adds the other doctor is a big threat to be left on his own so Rose needs to be with him.
    Does that mean she could have gone with the original doctor?
    God this is confusing!

    I didn't really get the finale, but thats the only episode I watched all the way through. I think Catherine Tate was actually fantastic though, its the first time I've seen her act properly.

    Anyone wanna give me the low down of what actually happened?
    And it was well sad when Donna had to go back to being... Human.

    Do people think our Doctor will ever see Rose again? Rose will probably be happy enough with the copy in time, but it's not the same- it's just not the same. I don't get why they couldn't have found a way that the Doctor and Rose couldn't travel round again? They seem to have eliminated that possibility for the future, but I guess Billie Piper didn't want to come back- although I had heard a rumour she was coming back for next season- can anyone shed a light on this?

    You love it really

    The Doctor said that Rose helped him originally and the clone needed the same level of help. He didn't originally want to be with Rose because he wouldn't/couldn't grow old and die with her.
    Rose could have gone with the real [:rolleyes:] Doctor, but that would have left the 'dangerous' clone alone.

    Ahh right, thanks for the clearup. I was just getting so confused, cos i was like if she was able to go with him then why didn't she?! But now i understand thats why the real doctor said thats the price they have to pay.

    God i have to stop analysing this episode!

    It's hard though. Very hard, god dammit! :rolleyes:

    And yes i do love it really...:rolleyes:

    Yeah you do



    You have to move on! You have to....er.... get the dvds and re-watch the first series again?:p:


    You know, I think the Doctor is a *little* bit emo.... Think about it, he has the chance to be happy, but he chose to go alone, to sit in his huge old TARDIS with just himself and his freakishly large brain...







    No? Just me? Ok......

    Yeah i ought to buy the first series actually, got the 2nd series, personally has to be one of my favs in the new series' aswell as this latest season.
    However what i did catch of the first new series, was very good.
    Think i saw the first episode, 'Rose' - think its called?
    One with gas masks and people going 'Are you my mummy'? lol :p:
    And the last one. Which is brilliant.

    Yup he is hugely emo, but you gotta love it. Well i do, it just makes you feel sorry for him. And he's all cute and everything. Well you may not agree with me on that, but yeh...
    And lets face it, he's not going to be on his own for too long, someone is going to snap him up. And although i wish it was me...it sadly isn't.
    :p:


    Yes, just you. And only you. But hey if it works for you then hec, go for it. :p:

    Oddly enough, no, I don't agree with you on the whole "he's cute" issue... Wonder why that is..:rolleyes:

    I need to get the dvds too, actually. Though, I'd never get anything done!



    And how rude! Just because I'm special there's no reason to pick on me!
    [You're special too - but not in the same way ]
