Who's Who 2

I notice that the bookies favourite, to replace Matt Smith as The Doctor, is now Peter Capaldi.

Another interesting older actor that could carry off the necessary mix of gravitas and humour.

Given that Steven Moffat favoured the idea of an older Doctor, before he was bowled over by Matt Smith's audition, perhaps this speculation has some basis in truth?

Who's Who

Amongst all the speculation over the actor who will assume the role of the 12th Doctor my favourite, so far, has been Jared Harris.

I admit that I would like to see an older actor in the role again, something which is unlikely now the programme seems to demand an actor with the 'squee' factor.

However, Jared has shown a great range in the roles he has played and would, I think provide the right combination of gravitas and humour.

He would keep the youthful spirit of the Doctor, in the shell of an older person. He’s weathered, but not worn out, and time and again on Mad Men his character’s quiet, misunderstood sense of humor added an extra twinkle to the show.


Every so often I like to add to my late brother's collection, as and when they come out, any new items that might be of interest to guests and especially returning guests.

The Tenth Planet has beed added which includes an animated version of the missing episode which featured the very first regeneration from William Hartnell to Patrick Troughton.

Should keep you all our visitors entertained in the evenings or if the English Summer takes a turn for the worse !
