Doctor Who
« on: June 01, 2013, 06:32:29 PM »
Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who. They better not fuck up the casting for the 12th.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

They confirmed him for Series 8, and than unconfirmed him. I'm guessing someone jumped the gun during negotiations. Whoever confirmed him are assholes. They gave me hope and took it away dang it!

I'm more frustrated with myself than anything else because I bought into those rumors from last week saying he was staying for series 8. At the same time, almost every rumor has had him pegged for leaving the show after the Christmas special. Makes me wonder if/when/who they will be filming the regeneration. Surly they haven't cast the 12th Doctor yet, thus they'll need Smith for some final shoots...

Regardless, Tennant and Smith have provided us with 8+ years of stellar Doctor Who moments and I'm looking forward to the new Doctor, whoever it may be.

Dang, I really loved Matt Smith as the Doctor and I was hoping we could get another 3+ years out of him. Oh well. I'll just have to hope that the next Doctor is a good choice.

 I'm amazed it's been 3 years already. When I think about it it sounds right. But it doesn't FEEL right. Maybe it's just because they only give you a little Who(6ish episodes) at a time.

 Smith overcame the emo doctor label and ended up being pretty good. He easily had a few more seasons in him and it's a shame to see him leave.

 I wonder why everyone is so quick to leave the show. One season and you're typecast regardless and I'm sure the money is good.

The thing is, it's a "normal" amount of time to stay.  I think people just think that Doctors stay longer because Tom Baker was around for so long.  Tennant actually stayed longer than most.

I think they leave after 3-4 years due to an increase in their popularity and demand. Once you land "the Doctor", 70+ million people soon learn your name, so naturally if you're even a remotely good actor, people are going to want you. I believe Matt Smith made it clear that he wants to break into Hollywood at this point in his career.

It's too bad. I would have liked him to stay for one more season.

I really like the chemistry between Clara and this iteration of the Doctor. I wanted to see more of Matt Smiths doctor interacting with that character.

All I know is the next Doctor better not be American or a woman.

It's time for a gay Doctor.

He regenerates and doesn't need to mope about River any more cause he is all about the mens now.

Male companions obviously will be more prevalent.

His moping about River was nothing compared to David Tennant's moping about Rose.

Probably more like "Who's that?"
I certainly hadn't heard of Matt Smith before Doctor Who.

I've heard there are 2-1 odds on Peter Capaldi.

I'm okay with this.

I'd like to have someone a bit older again.
