Doctor Who Thoughts

...the new Doctor is about a year older than I am. Jesus Christ, I feel old.

I am kind of disappointed actually. I really liked the Patterson Joseph rumors. Not in the least because I was really excited by the idea of a non-white Doctor.

My disappointment has nothing to do with the new guy really though. I've never seen him in anything, so I haven't a clue whether he's good or not. But really, I like every Doctor, so I'm probably going to be fine with him.

And hell, if he sucks, they'll just regenerate him faster. That's the joy of the franchise. :-)

(And it's not like the whole 13 thing will be a real barrier I'd reckon, there are plenty of implausible ways to extend that if they darn well feel like it and I suspect they will.)

I'm still weirded out by the age though. The Doctor is in my age group. Egads.

    Tell me about it. I'm already 19 days older than David Tennant... and now this!

    That's time travel for you. One direction.

    Cheers for mentioning this, Kalinara, I had no idea...

    *rushes first to BBC website then Wikipedia*

    Okay, he's pretty but not once in my life have I seen him act. It's going to be a left-fielder again but that worked with McCoy.

    Heh, now you know how I feel about our President-elect. He's like four years YOUNGER than me. :)

    I'm a bit bummed by the Patterson Joseph thing too, but apparently they offered it to Joseph - and Chiwetel Ejiofor - and they turned it down. (According to a poster who is quite well informed about such things).
    So, I'm a little bummed, but hopefully he'll turn out okay...

    Apparently I went to Uni with this guy and he graduated the same year I did. I didn't know him but have since sought out pictures of him and think he looks far too young and twerpish.

    Yeah, he's only a couple months older than me. Man. @@

    His publicity photos on IMDB look fairly emo-ish, but we all know how those things lie. I'll wait 'til I see him on-screen before I judge.
