Sneak Peek: the New 'Doctor Who'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2010 11:29AM
How many Doctor Whos have there been over the years, anyway? The newest is Matt Smith, and I mean newest in two ways. He's the latest guy to play the Doctor and he's also the youngest to play him (he's 27). Here's a preview of the new season, which starts on BBC America on April 17.

They change TOO OFTEN....I am just now getting used to David Tennant. I am wondering if Tennant quit -- due to boredom -- or the producers just stupidly change these guys too often. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I miss David already also...although I will give the kid a chance, after all isn't that what the doctor stands for. As long as we're not lulled back into the androginist '80s. Can a Doctor be reborn ? At the right price ? (smile) I wonder if Tom would have put back on his hat and scarf ? We'll never know...but time is fluid, isn't it ? Long live the Doctor, one of the few things I have to look forward these days. May he reign forever.

I don't know if Tom can be convinced to put on the old hat and scarf for an episode, but signs are encouraging. He recently did a series of five audio plays as The Doctor for BBC Audiobooks, and also did a two-part interview with Doctor Who Magazine. Perhaps his fairly well-known reluctance to continue being associated with the part is finally starting to mellow.

Good and cheesey, the way it was meant to be.
I like the Tom Baker episodes, but I'm old.
Looking forward to the new series.

Considering tenth was suffering "radiation poisoning" at the end of the of "end of time" and tried to forced a delay of the renegeration... if like the last time something had genetic effect that forced the doctor to regenerate (Think it was 5th to 6th doctor) I'm expecting a not do good doctor since if history repeats themself, the new doctor will not be very popular, egotistic, etc. by the "poisoning"...

The new doctor is ugly, why did they change the doctor? Were people getting bored?

Dr. Who is always evolving. For me, it is the best SI-FI around. It always has an interesting story line and at times a heart warming touch. Tom Baker is, of course, the best of the Doctors. I hope, some day, there is a replay of all the Dr. Who's with Tom as the Dr.

...I am with Kris.. I love David Tennant and Tom Baker.. but I am always willing to give a new Dr a try.. I have been watching for over 20years.. Has always been a great series for my children and myself to watch as they were growing up.. and now my sister watches.. only took her 20years...

David Tennant and Tom Baker are my faves. Looking forward to the 11th Doctor. I love the fact that The doctor keeps getting younger as his regenerations run out (I think he has 2 left but that Doctor/Donna thing may have used one). Doctor Who is the longest running show in Sci-Fi history, here's to the hope Matt Smith will do it justice.
