Heck, don't even have to go to Torchwood as he was in Who, Fires of Pompeii with 10 and Donna. Of course that's nothing new, tho lets hope Colin
Baker appearing as Time Lord Maxill before becoming the 6th Doctor doesn't bode anything here. :-)
I too am very surprised they'd risk their cash cow's popularity with the Tweens after Tennant and Smithy as fan girls are already crying "Eww,
old!" but of course if ratings drop the 13th Doc can always appear sooner than later! That said, I personally will certainly give it a chance just
as I have with every regeneration and always enjoyed the Doctor's new persona if not always the writing and production values.
I do think Matt Smith pulled off being ancient whilst looking youthful with ease and easily is the best and most alien tho likeable Doctor since Tom
Baker, with Tennant being quite fantastic as well. However, the past couple series have suffered GREATLY from overly rushed stories. I swear each
story has excellent ideas and happenings but it goes by so fast, cramming so much in 1 45min episode that you can't even appreciate what you've seen
nor does it have any time to affect the audience on an emotional level or have any weight or shock or gravitas. Hopefully they'll slow things down a
bit and throw in some 2 parters so we can get our minds and hearts wrapped around and invested in the ideas and characters.
Also, there's a beer commercial on yewtoobe featuring a younger Peter C and he seems very Doctorish...sort of 8ish with some 4 thrown in. Certainly
could be an excellent and more mature Doctor, and a lifelong fan. And they can always have some hunky male companion for the fan girls, Clara can
flirt with him as the Doc will undoubtedly become more parental, tho I would love for his tin pup to come back for a few TARDIS Adventures (come on K9
