I'd be quite happy with Eddie Redmayne playing the Doctor, they could even get that platypus back to be his companion.
I've been down on the series the last couple of years whilst I found both Smith and Capaldi were both great in the role the scripts have the most part left much to be desired.
Recently gone back and have been watching series two which is the first time I've watched Tennant since his regeneration. One thing the show has really lost is the sense of fun that the Doctor has on his adventures.
At the time I found Rose quite annoying because she was a bit of a chav but looking back I find her a much stronger character than many recent companions. Her council estate life is actually much more grounded than Amy Ponds perfect English village which fits in much better to The Famous Five than Doctor Who or Clara who went from working as an au pair to a fully qualified teacher without any extra training.
This is even got me a little bit excited for the new episode this evening will see how it holds up.
