Doctor Who Is Dead
JustBrad
With the casting of Bradley Walsh, we have now turned the Capaldi era format, and the Classic Who format, on their heads.

We have a father figure companion and a young female Doctor.

Whether you think it's a good thing or a bad thing, you have to admit that so drastically altering the format of a winning show is a risk. Will it pay off?

I would offer an opinion if I had any idea who this person even was. The world is so bizarre at the moment, I really don't know what to say about a heap of things.

Have come to the conclusion that I'm a Classic Who fan who sporadically enjoys the new version of the show. I cannot see what improvement any of this strange messing around brings the programme's format.

At this point, his casting is only a rumour. He's got previous, though, having played a villain in The Sarah Jane Adventures. He's also been well-established as a serious actor, given his work with Law & Order: UK.

Besides which, the arrival of a comedian playing a companion has a rich pedigree of being hailed as the doom of the show. Catherine Tate and Matt Lucas both faced much hand-wringing and turned out to be amazing.

For me, it's got to be better than the drooling females who have been companions in the New Who. Never-mind the retro-fitting of Sarah Jane into that mould..

Donna and Bill were much better companions for me. Amy was fine while she was with Rory but still tended to have unrequited romantic feelings from time to time.

That they did that to SJS really irked me.

I have to admit that while I will watch, my enthusiasm for New Who is at an all time low. This is not necessarily about the casting, but PC remains one of my all time favorite actors, a truly gifted talent, and yet there were episodes that even he could not save.

Recently I've been watching Classic Who from the Tom Baker era, and finding that I enjoy it far more than I have enjoyed New Who for along time. Odd, given my fondness for Capaldi.

Here's hoping the new team has some new ideas, or failing that, goes back to the old ideas.

I agree with all of that. My only concern is that we will now have drooling male companions.
