    I do not like that they release the names early. Never have. I would rather it be held close and be a surprise.
    I have not seen him in anything. Although with Jodie Whitiker the only thing I saw her in was that Broadchurch show or as my mom calls it watching paint dry. Well Capaldi I knew but not his nameat the time. But saw him in plenty.

    Looks like they are going with young again. I prefer when the doctor is a bit older.

    I liked
    Capaldi but his time was wasted with Clara. Too much Clara.

    It's a male part...Jodie wasn't a good fit but the poor writing didn't help either in my opinion.

    Sadly, they have to otherwise it will leak when it comes to filming. Historically, they alway have been even in the classic series.

    As much as I liked Capaldi (Clara was awesome, Bill was crappy), I do think a younger Doctor brings more energy and also appeals to younger viewers - Matt Smith was excellent.....

    David Tennant was the last good doctor...

    Doctor Who is an extraterrestrial being who appears as a human and regenerates into a new incarnation from time to time... So could easily be male, female, trans, any race...

    It is rather odd when you have TV shows like "Doctor Who" or "Star Trek" where the central concept is of characters who are good people fighting hard to do the right thing, no matter the personal cost. The message is overwhelming positive - fight bigotry, challenge authority, embrace your true feelings, love people.

    And then the fans go "it's a woman. this will be shit".

    I wonder if they ever truly understood the programs they watch.

    I remember seeing John Pertwee's first episode in Spearhead from Space. 
    That story gave me the chills.
    I was too young to recall Patrick Troughton and William Harntell episodes.
    With the reboot, Chris Eccleston was good but only signed up for one series.
    Having watched Tennant, Capaldi, Smith and Whittaker; my favourite has been Peter Capaldi followed by Matt Smith.
    Tennant was too melodramatic for my liking.
    As mentioned above, the writing for Jodie's stories have let her down. I didn't mind her but it always seemed as though she was narrating everything she was doing.
    Also, since when did aliens have a Scottish accent?????
    Sometimes I struggle to understand the dialog. (Need subtitles !)
    Anyhow it will be interesting to see how the new doctor fares.

    Christopher Eccleston was definitely my first and favourite, David Tennant was pretty good although like someone previously stated, a bit too melodramatic. Matt Smith was good but I began to stop watching at this point.

    Were you expecting a picture or something?
