The New “Doctor”


The Interwebs are a buzz about a pending announcement of who will be the new Doctor on “Doctor Who”. 

Whoever this person is will have to fill some big shoes. Matt Smith did a great job in his term as The Doctor. I think the new person needs to be older than Matt Smith but maybe younger than David Tennant. We do need someone who looks like the first three incarnations of the role.

Some fans feel there needs to be a change at the helm of the show. Steven Moffat seems to polarize fans a little. Too many folks still pine for the tenth Doctor played by Tennant. So right now the casting of the new person is critical to the future of the franchise. There are a legion of dedicated fans who are with the show no matter what.

Perhaps going back to basics, looking at the classic era to see how the show can go forward. Perhaps a greater emphasis on shorter story arcs. I think we need to focus on The Doctor and Companion and being introduced to new worlds and maybe visiting ancient worlds that were prevalent in the first seasons of the show.

It’s my hope the show will have some new life and that Jenna Coleman will have a good mate to run among the stars with. We shall see.
