    She does have a wonderful other-wordly quality to her sometimes and she can pull off any clothes they give her.






    I do love Rory Kinnear but he's already quashed all rumours that it's going to be him sadly. I'm not sure how good he would be though, I like him in things like Count Arthur Strong where he's a sort of blundering middle class englishman who thinks the most important thing in the world is people thinking he's a 'nice guy'. I can't really see him running around and punching daleks in the face.
    You should see him in Richard II, although I'll admit that he isn't half as badass as Joe Armstrong is as Henry Percy. He would be an amazing Doctor as well. There's heaps of people who'd be good at the part to be honest. I could deal with it being a woman if it was Tamsin Greig, but I won't love anyone as much as Alex Kingston.

    Alas i've only seen him do Hamlet He was very good however.

    Jw, I had a period where I didn't watch DW for a fair while but wasn't Peter Capaldi in an episode of DW or Torchwood? I think I remember a friend mentioning it so if he did have a big part I doubt they'd make him the Doctor sadly...

    I hadn't even considered her until now, but she would make an amazing Doctor!

    :woo: Finally the Tamsin Greig fan-club has more than one member! She does somehow make everything she's in worth watching (imho she's the best thing about the excellent Black Books) and she would still command the same level of authority that a male Doctor does. Plus only Olivia Coleman has such a natural eager glint in her eyes that just instantly makes you love them and conveys exactly how they're feeling in just a glance :love: (Totally crushing out here)

    No, you knew that 'a press source had leaked' and therefore it was likely. It has now been officially announced :hmmm:

    Not particularly, I'm concerned about Capaldi. I'd struggle with half expecting him to swear every other word :mmm:
    I'd rather like it to be someone unexpected and relatively unknown, like Matt was :yep:

    If there had to be a female doctor, then I could see Tamsin doing very well, but I'd prefer it to stick to being a male doctor. I'd love to see her as a companion though. I imagine it would be on the Doctor Donna level :teeth:

    :five:

    She definitely made Black Books. I could see her being a good transition into the idea of a female Doctor, like you say she would be able to command authority well

    Olivia Coleman?

    I am also a huge fan! I don't want a female Doctor, but if we have to have one then she'd do a good job. She's a fantastic actor.

    I love how they still called it 'BREAKING NEWS' even though it's been going round the fan sites for hours :rofl: Nice to have it confirmed though, I was half suspecting this all to be a ruse by Moffat to get us all excited, then they'd show an old Cash in the Attic or something. Moffat is the ultimate troll.

    Do you think they might finally show the 50th special trailer during this live show? Seems like a decent opportunity I guess, how long will the show be?

    Pedant! I pedant I say!

    You should see him in his breakout role in Local Hero He's adorable, has a fairly innocent crush and looks after an injured bunny, it's rather... Conflicting.

    I hope they're unknown so long as I actually know them and can then act all hipster-y :awesome: I would certainly settle for her being a companion but I wouldn't be surprised if they kept Clara going sadly and companions are usually a fair bit younger.

    Olivia Coleman was in Green Wing with her, she plays comedy and drama really, really well. She was in Hot Fuzz as the female policeman so perhaps you know her from there?



    :love: She just sorts of radiates happy feels but as soon as she 'switches' you're pretty sure she could knock your block off.(I don't know why but while google image searching I got Sean Bean in drag with a blonde wig... I would also approve of that being the new Doctor. The fan rage would be bliss).

    *waves* Hello new people, 'tis always wonderful to see more fellow fans :^_^: Why not introduce yourselves a bit? Favourite doctors/eps etc, all that fun stuff.
    Hello *Waves back* Well my favourite is probably Matt Smith simply because of the story lines that have accompanied him eg Amy Pond and Riversong. My favourite episodes have been Amy's choice/The time of Angels and Flesh and Stone. My favourite/creepiest alien is probably the Weeping angels *shivers* DID ANYBODY SEE THAT THE NEW DOCTOR IS GOING TO BE REVEALED LIVE ON BBC THIS WEEKEND AFSBFKFNFJFKCNFJFKFJ

    HUZZAH! IMHO she's pretty much the most underrated actor going although she's going to be in the new Shearsmith/Pemberton series so hopefully she'll get a big role in that. It's just like a perfect merger of everything I love right there

    The sad part is... I would also be happy with an episode of Cash in the Attic. It's my guilty pleasure watch :yep:

    I think it's fair to say we're all excited for it XD

    Alas to my great shame I haven't caught the Amy Pond seasons, I sort of fell out with DW around the end of Davies's tenure and only got back in recently although i'm fairly up to date on a few DW audio productions and Classic Who. But yush, Weeping Angels are fantabulous.

    Oh right, I know of her, just not be name. Seen her in Green Wing & Hot Fuzz :yep:

    She's been in Doctor Who already though. I mean that's not unprecedented (Martha and Amy for instance) but I can't see them using someone whose already been in it as the Doctor

    Merely confirming for the masses that Moffat was not going to change his mind because of rumours. As FFFF said, he is the ultimate troll :sly:

    You should see him in his breakout role in Local Hero He's adorable, has a fairly innocent crush and looks after an injured bunny, it's rather... Conflicting.
    :mmm: I'm sure that if it is him I'd eventually learn to cope. I'd just be confused when he got angry and started shouting...

    I hope they're unknown so long as I actually know them and can then act all hipster-y :awesome: I would certainly settle for her being a companion but I wouldn't be surprised if they kept Clara going sadly and companions are usually a fair bit younger.
    I was like that with Matt Smith, having watched Party Animals :awesome:
    I was a supporter of his right from the very beginning :proud:

    It was only officially announced just after midnight. It's been circulating on various websites and forums for a bit longer though, and it'll be at 7pm on Sunday 4th August, and half an hour. The link to the page with info about it is in my post with the twitter announcement.
