My brain would melt.
Melted. [For lazy non-clickers, it's an article about a Radio Times poll in which Tony Head was picked as the viewer favourite to play the next Doctor Who. Beating out Alan Rickman. It's not likely to happen at all; rumour has it that the next Doc is more or less in the bag, and it ain't ASH. Just the concept is freaking me out though. wolfling and I started a Doc/Giles crossover, not that we got far enough for them to meet or even, you know. Appear. This would make that... Something. Incestuous, or possibly recursive.]

Yeah, pretty sure David Tennant's a shoo-in for Ten; love the idea of Doctor/Giles.

I know nothing about Tennant aside from the Barty Crouch thing -- what's he like? (At least I'd seen Eccles before, in The Others.)

We loved the idea of Doc/Giles too -- just never got much further than the casefile-like opening.

Not that it's going to happen, and yet, if it did, my brain would spontaneously combust. And I'd get over the thing where I don't actually want to see any DW porn in about .00000005 seconds. If not sooner. (Not that I'm not working toward getting over that pretty quickly anyway, thanks to Eccleston, but. Damn.

I'm one of the few weirdos who doesn't have much problem with Doc!Porn to begin with, though there's a limited number of characters I can bear to see it with, and most-but-not-all of them are men -- but Eccleston is especially non-neutered. And ASH would kill off any lingering squeebies I had.

I don't have a squick about it; I just don't care, as a rule. This could very well be because, while he's not my favorite Doctor, Tom Baker's the first image that pops into my head when I think of the Doctor, and he's also someone that, for some reason, I hope to never have to picture with his clothes off. *g*

Eccleston, on the other hand....

Oh, that's what you meant by that! I thought you were talking about alt tags in the tags themselves, like <a href="blahblah" alt="Link to my laundry list">

New Dr Who has already started in the UK. They're up to like episode 3.

Wish they had gone with ASH. Also wish that Rose wasn't some has-been Brit pop princess. Oh well.

I sort of like Rose; then again I haven't seen ep 3 yet (have it but am waiting to watch it with my roomie this weekend), so she hasn't had much of a chance to display a personality yet.

But the 'new' Doc they're talking about in the article is the new new Doc; Eccleston's said he's not going to do another series, and it looks like David Tennent is set to be Doc 10.

Which is a pity, since I think he's doing an excellent job at the mix of dark, manic, angst, live for the now, gotta love him.

And a hand-crank in the tardis controls. Bwa!

It's the in-and-out piston thing on the console that gets me. Can they have not realized the visual subtext?

Oh. I so, so, so would go see that movie if ASH was the Doctor. That would rock.

It's actually airing on BBC again; Christopher Eccleston is the current Doctor, but he's only staying through the end of the current (already-filmed) season. I believe they've already announced that the next Doc is going to be David Tennant. It was the spot that Tennant filled that they were polling the public about.

I'd totally watch it if ASH got the nod. Then again, I'm totally watching it now!

Gotcha.
I'm not a huge Doctor Who fan, it depends on just WHO is the Doctor for me, but yeah I'd be down with it if ASH was the man.
