New Who

DavidTennantDrWho.jpg

PooterGeek blames supergenius Russell T Davies - formerly of Queer As Folk fame - for David Tennant, "a Doctor who’s prettier than his assistant." Point taken. Though judging by Doctor Who Confidential for Season 2 Episode 1 ("New New Doctor") the entire production staff is made up of gay men (plus one Grace). I think we can safely assign the decision to a consensus process rather than a "great man" theory of casting.

Who fans worried at the departure of Christopher Eccleston should relax. David Tennant is a natural as the Doctor. And no need for separation anxiety in the short term: Tennant and Billie Piper have already signed on for Season 3.
