Christopher Ecclestone is The Doctor. The BBC have announced it on the tv news and everything. It's just like the old days.

Wow, that's a bit of a left-field choice. Any news on whether Eccleston is in Star Wars Episode 3?

He'll have to grow out that hair a bit, eh?

Hmmm, I was hoping for Eddie Izzard.

Story in the UK's Daily Mail newspaper today. It's official : Bill Nighy to be the new Doctor Who!

Whoops! :)

I just hope the first episode features the Doctor landing on a planet that has been overrun with zombies.

I think he could be pretty great; edgy and interesting, and not at all what you'd expect. This bodes extremely well for the new series.

They might have announced it on the news, but they apparently forgot to tell the BBCi guys about it...
