      Yeah agreed. We recently rewatched the modern ones and I had mis-remembered Smith as being overly silly. In fact, in his earlier series he showed he was really good BUT towards the end the shows were just shallow and silly and he couldn't do much with them.

        Michael Sheen or Matt Berry would get my vote.

        Sheen for the all round acting (loved the character he played in Tron:Legacy)


        and Berry for that voice. "Do you want to see my taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdis."

        He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

        I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

          I'm goinjg for Worzel Gummidge with Aunt Sally and Sid the Snake as companions. They would be a lot more believeable than the "woke" Dr Who we had to suffer recently.

            It's the script writers. You could cast Donald Trump and it would still be woke.

              Not sure how being woke makes them unbelievable. Unbelievable means they act in a way very different to real people.

                Maybe, but irrelevant. A script that relies on pages of explanatory dialogue to make a point that is already well understood - at least to anyone with a small degree of awareness of history - and has a single device that can solve any physical problem by going "beep" is simply lazy or incompetent.

                Also "unbelievable" means doing something that is clearly impossible. Waving a magic wand - sonic or not - doesn't make it believable.

                Blog? What blog...?

                  That's nonsense. It's about being believable within the premise of the show.

                    Nigel Farage for Doctor?

                    I think SYL would be a step too far!

                      It's because woke people don't know how to be real. As with all other ideologues, what matters is the ideology, not the individuals that it purports to benefit. I find them entirely unbelievable.
