Tom Baker, the original Dr. Who, sings Queen. Yep.

Going off track here, but how is David Tennant as the new Dr. Who? We are currently halfway through the series with Christopher Eccleston, and I am rather fond of him.

Well the fanboys who *loved* Ecclestone all pretended they "never liked Eccleston anyway" when Tennant came along, so I guess Tennant is pretty popular (either that or the fanboys just praise whoever the current actor is).
IMO Tennant is a bit too much of a generic traditional Doctor (what with him being a massive fan in real life) whereas as Eccleston (who knew nothing about the show) brought a really fresh, never seen before or since, aproach.
Tennant's a good actor and pretty charismatic though, which is the main thing.

Yes Eccleston was really good a bit shit he didnt do another series his reason for not doing it was it takes 9 months per season for 13 episodes. Tennant is good but that spark just isnt quite there for me we're two episodes in here in uk so lets wait & see

Brian has now made the same correction himself on his soapbox, thus making it acceptable behaviour.

Speaking as a substantial Doctor Who fan, I would say Eccleston was the best. Tennant is very good, but he'll never be as good as Eccleston for me. I am a bit pissed off Tennant doesn't use his lovely Paisley accent.
Anyway, does anyone else think that Dr Brian May MBE would make a good Doctor Who? I have thought this for a while, I think he suits the role.


This can't end well.

I think he'd be like Alan Davies would have.. too reserved and soft spoken... and whenever he came across Daleks attacking the earth, instead of trying to defeat the Daleks and save the humans, he'd just be like, "so, in a way, you're both right!", like when those people asked him who sang Sheer Heart Attack.
Maybe if you could capture Brian's mentality when he's on stage and have him behave like that 24/7, then he could be Doctor...

Well. As a substantial Dr Who fan, could you remind me of something. Am I right in remembering from the days when I watched Jon Pertwee on, that a Time Lord has a limited number of regenerations?

Is it 13 or 14, or am I completely wrong here?

Waaaay off topic and not the correct forum. But like I give a shit?

Cheers

I always thought it was nine, but I am not really much on Who lore. I'm more of a bystander.

I still think Brian's got the hair for it though. Wrap a scarf around his neck and he's ready to go.

Well they're already on number ten.

A timelord has 12 regenerations (ie 13 bodies)
