New Doctor Who castingCategory: nononononono!!!

Oh boy, I hope that this is just a rumour but apparently Catherine Tate is playing
the new companion during the next series now that Martha will be in Torchwood/back
half-way through and not before.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Doctor Who was meant to showcase fresh talent,
or good actors and actresses that had been, to some extent, overlooked;
especially when it comes to the new Doctors and companions (with the exception
of a few previous companions who were terrible, and possibly David Tennant if you
think about it enough). By casting Catherine Tate in this role, the show has gone
against this principle in a very big way.

Also, I'm not the only one who thought that Donna had a voice that occassionally
went above the decibels of human hearing/needed a good slap was more than a
little annoying (lj comms are alive with talk about Donna again; most of it bad).
This doesn't mean that the new character will be like this, but it makes you
wonder....

Yes, it would be good to have a companion who called the Doctor on what he saying and
could stand up to him more but Martha did that at the start of the last series and
she ended up, at her worst, fawning over her love for the Doctor. Not good prospects
there then.

One last little point: you're supposed to empathise with the companion, it is how the
show helps to get the audience involved. I just don't think I could do that with
Catherine Tate (I've tried before; she did a drama and although I tried to get into
the show, I could connect with her character. Bit of a problem considering she was
the lead actress).

To sum up my present feelings:

no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-
no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-
no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-
no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-
no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-
no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no-no...



If anyone wants me, I'm off trying to figure out where exactly Doctor Who started to
jump the intergalatic shark....

P.S: If they had to use an actress which had already appeared in Doctor Who, why not
use the actress who played Sally Sparrow? She was great!

P.S.S: Russel T Davis needs a good slap makes me cry...

P.S.S.S: Why Rusty why!?!?!

be so much better than Martha, some peopel just like Rose better

I prefer Martha to Rose myself but there you go, just my opinion!

Yeah...Kylie+Doctor Who=Low ratings -or- Kylie+Doctor Who=High
ratings. It depends on how much pull Kylie has, and judging from the
press, she still has a big following so....Its questionable how many
actual fans of the show will watch though.

I haven't worked out how I feel about this yet...
I'm shocked though, because I thought they'd get someone completely
new

I know everyone has different opinions of Martha and Rose - I thought
Rose was good, but Martha is better in some ways
