This is about a month too late, but what the heck was that last episode? I apologize if there is a thread, but this is on my mind! Ok, new Dr: CHECK! My question is when? And is the David tennnant episode going to be the Christmas special? Matt Smith rocks, but they went older this time! Any information is helpful, and thank you!

the eppy with Tennant (and John Hurt!) is going to be the Anniversary story out on the 23rd of November (in the UK Lord knows when it'll air in the US and Oz).
And Hurt's not the next Doctor, he's a PREVIOUS Doctor, someone who did something that basically made all the other Doctors drum him out of the magic circle, stripping him of his name etc. The speculation is that he's the one who fought in the Time War. My personal theory is that the Doctor fought WITH the Daleks against the Time Lords and betrayed them. Basically he saw the Time Lords had gone "too far", joined up with the Daleks (ie the most evil force in the universe), did some nasty stuff, timelocked Gallifrey and genocided (again) the Daleks and had a "my god, what have I done?" moment and forced a regeneration out of grief becoming the Doctor again - the Eccelston Doctor. I seem to recall Davros calling him "betrayer" in Journey's End, that would fit with them being allies at the start of the war - as would him trying to save Davros from the Nightmare Child.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

SWH, that was a prolific and amazing answer. One of the best explinations I've gotten ever on Dr Who! Thank you :). Yea, nov is when The "first" clara episode came out, so hopefully will be the same. Just in time for thanksgiving. Wow, so Hurt was the last dr. in the Older series? This is going to be awesome, well get to see so much of the Dr.! DUDE!!!!

in the old Dr Who series Jesse, the last Dr, depending who you ask, was either Sylvester McCoy or Paul McGann.
Paul McGann only played him once in the two-part tele-movie 'the eye of harmony', which at the start showed Sylvester McCoy regenerating into Paul McGann, but has played him many times on radio & podcast.
his incarnation MUST be canon, as he was a feature in the recent '50th anniversary collection' of books, with his own adventure entitled 'earthworld', and clips of TEOH have been shown in recent Dr Who episodes. if you're a fan of the Dr Who comics, he features very heavily in them too!
HOPEFULLY he'll appear in the 50th anniversary shows, as I thought he was quite good as a Dr, but william hurt, brilliant as he may be, has never played The Doctor i'm afraid!
it'd be nice if he was to be the new doctor, but the producers seem to be hell-bent on casting a woman this time round (Nurse Who....?) with Miranda Hart being in the front running for the job.....

What! There just mind-bending us along every step of the way then :sleepy:. So I guess what Im wondering is, where the heck does william hurt fit in then? Is he just a story line dr? I think thats what it's sounding like. So have there only been 11 doctors in the new series also? I've only been a fan since David tennant, maybe in 06, so I never dealved deeper than that. A woman, IDk, I'm sure I'll like her later on, but at first it will be hard to accept. I do remember him saying in an episode that he was one at some point though :P.

there are two major Hurt theories - one is that he's a previous regeneratipn but not a Doctor (as SmithDoctor says, the name you choose is a promise, a code of conduct that HurtDoctor broke). the other is something wibbly-wobbly happened and HurtDoctor somhwo replaced EccelstonDoctor and Billie Piper filmee her scenes with Hurt recreating famous Eccelston-era scenes.

I prefer the "previous regeneration" theory, as that means there won't be a honking reset switch (aka massive wase of time button)

I just absolutely love David Tennant and was traumatised when he left Dr Who...... took me AGES to start to like Matt Smith but now I love him too and now he is LEAVING!!!  David Tennant back for the 50th anniversary just means I have to do through the devastation of him leaving all over again!!!! Lol. :no:

I would love for Benedict Cumberbatch to be the next Dr.  I already love him :wub:

Ok see the wibbley wobbely thing makes sense. It's safe to say he won't partake the "Actual" role for a couple seasons then :w00t:, but I could get used to him. Stephen moffett will hold on to this for as long as he can :no:. I know I know, its starting to sound like hes a regeneration, or a plotline dr. Why would he replace eccelston? That would make no sense :td: . They just came out of the dr.s psyche, so maybe it will play off of that again. Interesting... honestly the new dr. should be someone out of the left wing.

David Tennant has won an Emmy!
For his role as a droid in SW: The Clone Wars, he won Outstanding Performance in an Animated Series. Not bad for a role that IIRC is about ten minutes of screentime.

Yeah! :clap: :clap:

I like him, he is a wonderful actor.

I really don't understand the whole "He is the best Dr Who" thing. I think all the actors who have portrayed Dr Who over the years, are all good in their own way. My opinion, anyway.

I think he's the nostalgia Dr. H'e the first dr. I got know, eccelston honestly just didn't last that long in memory. I only remebered him when they played re-runs.
