Is that a pocket watch chain I see?

No you won't.

Hey, man, I still wish Eccleston had stuck around a little longer.

You'll keep watching DW and you'll like it!

is he related to Jim Capaldi of Traffic?

The Doctor has almost always carried a pocketwatch since the beginning.
 
2014-01-07 06:40:06 PM
That looks an awful lot like what Smith was wearing during the Christmas special, except with a tie instead of Smith's bow tie (just compare Capaldi/Coleman with Smith/Coleman on the cover of the box they advertise on the right)
 
2014-01-07 06:40:27 PM
Oh look! He looks  exactly the same as he did at the end of the Christmas episode! Front page news!!
 
2014-01-07 06:41:28 PM
*clicks on bigger image*

Nope, no tie.
He's still in Smith's pre-regeneration costume.
 
2014-01-07 06:42:05 PM
There's a note somewhere that this isn't his "costume" - looks like the 11th's.

Have any of the actor's who have played the Doctor gone on to do anything significant?  It seems that they all quit after a few years to pursue greater fame as an actor, they get one or two secondary movie roles or TV guest spots and then you never hear from them again except for the odd NZ commercial.

Which makes sense.  If it picks up just after the regeneration, he'd still be wearing his old clothes.  He'll get his new style pretty quick though I suspect.

I can't recall any of the last three Doctors ever carrying one (Family of Blood excepted, of course).

How does one top that role?  You'll have to give examples of what would be significantly superior to being one of the Doctors.

I don't think Americans quite understand what a phenomenon Doctor Who is in the UK. We intellectually understand that it's been on the air for 50 years, but we don't understand what that means in terms of pop culture. It's like the James Bond of British television, only with a lot less down time.

Yeah, I just picked a number.  I think he was gone for 200 years before The Impossible Astronaut, then an unspecified time after Amy left, then an initial 200 on Tranzelore then a final 2-300 before regeneration.

What I was getting at is that most of the actor's who play The Doctor quit after a few years, and usually mention that they the role takes up too much time and they want to go on to bigger and more diverse rolls or seem to think they're ready to take on Hollywood.  Yet from what I've seen, that never happens.  I was hoping someone could point out how wrong I am.

Tennant has had a few good long runs in high value theater. And lots of lousy chick flicks, but being of the chick persuasion, I appreciate his slumming.

Eccleston has been the major villain in a couple of blockbuster movies, and done some TV and personal projects.

Tennant looks to have kept busy, but Broadchurch is the only thing of his that I've seen lately.

Matt Smith is rumored to have left Who because somebody waved a big Star Wars check in his face.

David Tennant has been in a TON of stuff since he left DW.  He starred in new stage/film adaptations of "Hamlet", "Much Ado About Nothing", and "Richard II", played a lead role in the shows "Broadchurch", "The Spies of Warsaw", "The Politician's Husband", and "The Escape Artist", and was a lead in the movies "The Decoy Bride", "Pirates! Band of Misfits", and "Fright Night".    I've heard FOX has plans on doing an American version of "Broadchurch" and have approached him about reprising his role in it.  And that's only a list of his major roles he's had since he left in 2010.  So, yeah, Tennant at least has been doing pretty well.

Troughton is the Duke of Norfolk around our house.

Davidson went on to do "All Creatures Great and Small".

And Tennant could pick up some awards next year for "Broadchurch".

Odd, doing a search on the various actors to have played the Doctor turns up a few accounts health and age problems and getting tired of the workload or tiring of the role or show runners not liking the actor in the role and varied other reasons, but not a single one saying they left to pursue bigger roles. Just where are you getting your info from?

Because another former Doctor did something equally significant.

Davison did the original three season run of All Creatures BEFORE his time as the Doctor, then when the series resumed in the late 80s, he returned most of the rest of the run.

As for Capaldi... there is never more hope than when a new Doctor is announced, and before his first episode is aired.

By episode two, he will be the WORST DOCTAR EVAR!

Eh, I thought it usually took 4-5 episodes before "Worst Doctor Evar... EVAR!" starts. I figure people usually give 3 or so episodes for the Doctor to show what kind of Doctor he is before everyone goes all stupid over it. At least Tennant took a couple seasons to get bad as he was in his finale, although how much of that was him and how much was the farktarded script is anyone's guess.
