OK - two things.

Number 1: I didn't need to know this site existed. Thanks -- hours of productivity gone.

    The big news today is, of course, the David Tennant casting announcement. ITV Teletext and BBC Ceefax carried the story, it was noted briefly on BBC Breakfast News and there are articles in the morning papers. CBBC's Newsround Showbiz seems to have abandoned its behind-the-scenes reports, but Newsround did, shortly before 5pm, cover the announcement of the new Doctor, with a report read over various clips from the first couple of episodes of the series. BBC News 24 doesn't seem to have covered the announcement (being largely dominated at the moment by the collapse of Rover cars and the election campaign), and the only BBC News coverage seems to have been at about 6.10 this morning, with a brief report of the announcement during Breakfast News. Meanwhile, a six-second teaser featuring the spaceship crashing into Big Ben, has been used to trail Aliens of London since about 5.30 yesterday evening.

Its a shame that Eccleston is going as he does make an excellent Doctor. Sort of. Hes very much the action-man Doctor, Tennant will be more of the thinking man Doctor.

Tennant is actually a pretty good actor, with his role in Blackpool winning him particular respect. He also just looks like a Doctor Who, so they may aswell give him the role.
