    He's put in pretty much the same amount of time of most of the Doctors. *shrugs*

    And he's the rarity.

    Look at all the Doctors:

    Hartnell - 3 years (3 full seasons and a partial 4th)
    Troughton - 3 years (3 full seasons and a partial 4th, picking up from Hartnell's last)
    Pertwee - 5 years (5 seasons)
    T Baker - 7 years (7 seasons)
    Davison - 3 years (2 & 7/8 seasons)
    C Baker - 2 years (well, 1/8 of a season the first year, then 2 full seasons/years after that)
    McCoy - 3 years (3 seasons)
    McGann - 1 movie
    Eccelston - 1 year (1 seasons)
    Tennent - 4 years (3 seasons and the specials)
    Smith - 4 years (3 seasons)


    The mathematical average comes out to each Doctor doing about 3.27 years, so technically Smith's done more than average. :p

    Pretty much Tom Baker is the first person I think of as the doctor.

    Can't really say that I'm sorry to see Smith go. He just never really appealed to me.


    edit I'll also be interested in how there going to get around the only 12 regeneration thing. which I don't think they've addressed yet. ( unless I've missed something ). Which will probably be dealt with in the anniversary special. I have a dreadful feeling that I'll be disappointed.

    well, 13 total, but yeah. The Valeyard is the amalgamation of the first 12 Doctors, so there's that too. *shrug*

    But they'll probably just timey-wimey it away.

    River did give the doctor some of her regenerations, or at least her regeneration energy, so we'll see if that factors into it.

    The worst part of this is people are going to think I used the word 'adorkable'. :(

    I managed to tap into a livestream of the announcement. I don't think I've sat that close to my computer screen in a while.

    hmmm we'll see what he can bring to the show. Good to see that there breaking away from the "young" doctors rut that they have been stuck in for so long now.

    I'm most of the way through season three of my rewatch of the new series and it really hasn't improved my opinion of the new shows. While they are fun to watch they don't strike me as great.

    Just finished watching "the two doctors" ep of the classic series and i forgot how much i liked this ep. Which reminded me that the doctor has run into himself several times in the past. Now if I remember correctly wasn't there a ep in season one of the new series where the doctor goes on and on about how bad it would be to meet yourself and that it would cause all kinds of time problems. I guess, like everything else that rule doesn't apply to the doctor.

    Just watched "An Adventure in Space and Time", excellent movie and David Bradley did a great job portraying Hartnell. Made me tear up at some parts.
