Teaser Trailer dropped today:

 

 

I noticed a Facebook Post from TVNZ saying "coming soon" so to me that is a big rights loss to Prime TV/Sky

Dr Who nut here, so really looking forward to this series. Trailer looks encouraging. High hopes for Jodie Whittaker.

I'm super old school, so for me Dr Who will always be Peter Davison :D

 

(Not to say this new actress is no good, I just haven't seen much of the show after Peter had the role).

A tad provocative don’t you think?

I've been watching some Patrick Troughton recently,  a shame so many of his episodes were destroyed as he really was a very good Doctor.

Was Christopher Eccleston any good? I remember when the revival was announced in 2005 and thought he would have almost been the perfect (modern) actor to play the Doctor.

@quickymart Yep he was quite good IMO.  Probably good that he left after the first season, I don't think he could have sustained multiple seasons. He was the perfect guy to kick off the modern Doctor Who era.

Well I do find supercilious passive agressivensss a little provocative - denigrating people who may hold a particular point of view on an issue of a TV series actor?

As to the actor playing the doctor, my view is that every change is a hard start, and it takes a while to get used to new doctors. David Tennent is my favourite of the new bunch, and I could never really get a hold of Capaldi, even though I’ve loved him in other shows such as ‘the thick of it’. I’ll reserve my personal view on the new doctor until the end of season 1

Interesting. Who was the worst actor to the play the Doctor (in your opinion - this is to anyone reading this)? Personally, I never really liked Colin Baker that much.

I gave up watching part way through Matt Smith's tenure.  Could never get into his schtick.

Ok, but Tennant was better (and in my opinion, Smith better than Tennant, Capaldi I'm still undecided on, but I think of the revival, Smith wins so far).

 

Let's not forget about McGann,  the movie was a bit naff, but oh, oh, what could have been.

But FEZ’s are cool


But yes, he was a bit irritating.

I’d probably back Colin Baker as the worst though.

The reboot doctors have very simiar personalities compared to the variance of the first four doctors. It will take a very good actor to bring it alive again for me. It's following a low risk strategy acting wise. Compare that to the risks taken by Star Trek.

He's a Johnny Come Lately modernist.

 

 

 

Pertwee and Baker all the way.
