Eddie Izzard to play the new doctor who (but consider the source)

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2003452301,00.html

The BBC themselves say however that it'll be Richard E Grant or Alan Davies. Personally my order of preference is Eddie Izzard or Richard E Grant to play (in that order) and for Alan Davies to be consumed by space parasites.

Eddie would be perfect. That's inspired.

*sigh* Richard E. Grant is _dreamy_.

I can't help but feel that Carter would almost be too charismatic, the doctor was always more of a cantankerous sod but also very flamboyant. Izzard has proven he can do that very well, Carter on the other hand I think would make a great villain perhaps, or sidekick. Not that he doesn't have the talent to do the doctor, he just doesn't feel right to me.

Richard E. Grant is the current official Doctor of course, thanks to BBCi's machinations over the 40th Anniversary webcast but continuity has never been vastly important to the BBC.
