Am I the only one who knows who Drew Curtis is selling Fark.com to and who has known this was coming for several weeks? I figured that if it filtered down to me, a liter, it must be common knowledge among people who matter.

And although I'm a grown man, I'll still say the words "...now I feel kind of special. Yay me."

If it's going to be a black Doctor, I'd love to see Colin Salmon.  Someone with a strong presence would be a refreshing change from all the goofball antics of previous Doctors.  Whenever anyone asked him a question, he could just look at them and they'd shrivel up and die.

You do realize most of us were ready for Community to end, and NBC is renewing it because the rest of the network's lineup sucks herpes-infested donkey scrotum.

It's so bad, the only sitcoms they have coming back are the shell of what Community was, and Parks and Rec.

I tried and failed to get into the next-generation Dr. Who episodes.  But if Chiwetel is in the role I'll have to give it another shot.

Well people are wondering because he was written out of Arrow really quickly.

As long as they don't go female.  I hate genderwap, it's like bad fan fiction (I'm looking at you, "Joan" Watson).  So just as well I never saw the original BSG.

I thought it was fairly clear that Hurt is the next doctor.  You know, what with being introduced as The Doctor and all.  It says something when 11 doesn't consider him The Doctor, but the writer (God) does, don't you think?  Something like that is not unintentional.  I'm probably being to linear in the wibbly wobbly time stream though.

On a semi-related note, I thought the episodes with souffle girl were much more enjoyable than the ones with the biatchy, angry red head that was only into her guy when it gave her the emotional upper hand. Souffle girl is likeable and fun enough for it to feel like Who again.  I wish she had been Smith's primary companion.

You mean like how it was fairly clear that David Morrissey was going to be the next Doctor because he was the main character in an episode called "The Next Doctor" right at the end of David Tennant's run?

I actually think it's clear from the dialog in the episode that John Hurt is  not "the next Doctor," but rather the Doctor who ended the Time War by doing something necessary but so terrible that Eccleston, Tennant and Smith would prefer to forget him, but can't.

Which is exactly why, while I'm somewhat preparing myself for his departure, I'm also not going to accept it until it happens.

Moffatt is the very definition of Trolling Creator. He'll mess with the fans, feed them JUST enough info for them to make crazy Wild Mass Guesses, and then say something that points out his Exact Words. (Why, yes, I am a Troper.)

brigid_fitch: My write-in campaign for Idris Elba started on Monday.


Idris Elba would be good, but I would prefer Chiwetel Ejiofor. He was excellent in Shadow Line. A side effect of being cast as the Dr would be that more Who fans would watch Shadow Line and it deserves to be watched.

// Also, after you've seen the ending, go back and rewatch the first scene with the policemen and the car.
// Count the actions, compare with the end scene.

// SPOILERS:
// The police officer mimics shooting, but he mimics the wrong number of shots for the murder scene - he mimics the right number for the final shooting - showing that he knows the fate of the character before it all starts, because he's seen it before.
