BBC News Online asks Doctor Who experts whether Christopher Eccleston will shine as the latest incarnation.
The surprise choice of Eccleston as the ninth Doctor has been widely hailed by fans and critics.
They say Eccleston is an accomplished, serious actor who will bring a gravitas to the 40-year-old role and make it relevant for the age we live in.
Enthusiasts think he may portray a darker character than many of the previous doctors, who were often quirky, offbeat and replete with props.
