Hard to say how long this will last. Colin Baker who portrayed the Sixth Doctor had the shortest television run of one to two years.

Didn't he leave because he was difficult to work with, or something like that?

BTW. Colin Baker's Doctor is the one I really don't like...

if we are taking bets...I give her three seasons at the LEAST. That's if Doctor Who starts going back on a proper run and not taking year long breaks like 12th's run did TWICE because Moffat was busy also doing Sherlock. So hopefully with a new Showrunner that won't be an issue now.

The filming schedule is extremely demanding and actors are required to sign contracts limiting the scope of any work they can fit in around that schedule. One of the reasons actors don't stay long with DW is because of this - not to mention the concern of threat of typecasting impacting future work opportunities. Any actor would be bonkers to stay longer than three seasons in DW.

Back when Dr. Who used to shoot around Cardiff (which is super close to me and the show for sure shot multiple eps where I live, my mate even met Billie Piper and another of mine caught Capaldi once, another of my friends is a director and met the Torchwood cast) it was said the show for those on the lower rungs was a total shit-show to work for. Workers were treated like shit and pay wasn't good, all that kind of stuff. I heard Eccleston did not have a fun time in his tenure and wanted out soon as. His issues with the show even led to the War Doctor being invented in the first place, John Hurt's part was rumoured to be for Eccleston.

Oh yeah Moffat had approached Eccletson originally. They met professionally and acted as such with no ill blood. When he made it clear he did not wish to appear for the 50th, they went ahead with the War Doctor.

There are two things which have been overlooked almost totally.

1. what about the companion? is the companion going to be a competent man? It really needs to be.

2. what about River Song, you know..the doctors wife?

River spoiler
She is dead and they already had their first meeting too. Her story arch is kind of concluded. Unlikely that she'll play any big role for the next doctor's story.

Very likely true though. Her arc is pretty much done and dusted now.

Plus new show-runner will mean new side-characters and new arcs coming in.

I shamefully admit when I was 8 or 9 I used to pretend to be a cat version of the 7th Doctor.

Thete was a normal child. >_>

I'm excited to see how the new Doctor does, not so much the "you'll-have-to-wait-until-christmas" part - but that's already been said and done. I'm finally all caught up on the recent episodes (finished series 10), and now to play the waiting game.

I can't not watch it, though. >>

Question:

Who is your favorite companion and why? Who was your least favorite?

OH! Something I came across a while ago - true fans of the Doctor will be upset that he/she isn't ginger, rather than the fact that the Doctor is now a woman.

Also-also; I LOVED Missy. She was amazeballs insane and batshit crazy. xD

I give you the 13th Doctor's official look. I can't help but notice the Tardis also looks slightly different too. We may be getting a new outside look for the first time since the start of 11's run.

I don't...  like it.  Blah, maybe I'm just cranky but she kind of looks like a mom let their 4 year old pick out whatever she wanted from the closet in whatever combination.

Admittedly 9 has always been my go to fashion when it comes to Doctors.
