I agree to an extent. I think dwelling on the Rose story waters down what came before, which was done very well. And as you said, to go over the same emotional territory will cause things to stagnate. I'm assuming we're done with it though after the last finale. But to me the actual story writing is as good as it's ever been, with fresh ideas (aside from when they keep bringing back the classic villans).

Now they should just focus on telling good stories, and the only thread really left hanging now is his relationship with Professor River Song from the two-parter this year, which Moffat will be able to deal with himself as show-runner.

Father's Day was one of my favourite episodes, brilliant writing and acting.

It's sad to see Tennant leave but that's how the show works, as long as the new doctor is good

The next doctor will be the 11th right? So the next regen after that will be the final possible one? I'm sure they will find a workaround though, maybe introducing an alternate universe Doctor who has used less regens. That said the Christmas special, he is set to meet his future self, which may lead to the discovery of how he may continue.

I'll miss Tenant, more so than Eccleston, not that Chris was bad, I thought he was fantastic, but there was simply more time to become attached to Tenant than Chris. Anyone have any preference on who the new Doctor should be? Young, old, bearded, short, tall, ginger?

I'm looking forward to the direction Moffat will take it in, and if any of his past episodes are to go by, it should be amazing.

I read an article within the last week that had Stephen Fry as a suggestion.

The Americans probably aren't going to know who I'm talking about, but I think James Nesbitt would be a great Doctor. He recently worked with Doctor Who's next showrunner Steven Moffat (who's written all the best new episodes) on Moffat's series Jekyll, and I thought the guy was fantastic and had a great range. His rougher look and demeanor would be a nice contrast to the squishy Tennant.



Guy totally LOOKS like a "Doctor".

And I highly recommend Jekyll, a great mini-series (6 episodes, I think>) that is worth tracking down online if you haven't seen it.

I always thought Nesbitt would make a great Doctor, certainly a Doctor who could physically kick your ass. The first Irish Doctor is also something I could dig, but he has apparently said he's uninterested in the role. Jekyll was a great wee series though, plenty of cool moments.

Anyone in the UK watching the Torchwood miniseries this week?

Damn, this is great stuff so far.

Still a little bummed they didn't get a full season, but hopefully this will do well enough in the ratings to help that.

I'm pretty sure this is airing later this month or next month in the U.S., but it's "available" if you want to see it sooner.

I recently watched Dr Who and am planning to watch Torchwood. Don't know what took me so long to get interested. It's good stuff indeed.

I just finished Day Four last night and I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.

Now to check out the finale...

So the end is near for David Tennant. I, for one, can't wait to see it!

Already downloaded it, fucking fantastic. And perhaps Melon was just expressing enthusiasm to see the big climactic finale. I can't wait either.

Tennant is probably my second fav Doc, for what it's worth.
