Who should portray the next Doctor? 
- Eddie Izzard. He would be fantastic. --Riche (talk) 11:13, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
- Honestly...I don't know...I am trying to think of an American actor, and off the top of my head, cannot think of someone. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 11:21, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
How about... 
I'd quite like paterson Joseph as the doctor if it weren't for the fact he's already appeared in the series. Personally I think the morrissey 'next doctor' storyline will be exactly that:- moffat has apparently had input on the specials and the idea of having the doctor meet his future self before he actually regenerates into him in a later special seems like a very moffatish move. 184.108.40.206 —Preceding comment was added at 17:32, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I'm Ready For The 11th Doctor 
...because the 10th Doctor has been an annoying, sermonizing git for too long. I mean really, what he did to Hand Doctor/10.5/Clone Doctor was just terrible. There was a point that I loved 10, but certain writers have just ruined him on me.
I also second the suggestion of Eddie Izzard as the 11th.
Why not Who? 
I personally, and I'm sure others will, want to know why David Tennant has decided to leave the role of Doctor Who? Would have liked to see Tennant play the Doctor for several more seasons/series. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:28, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

the "Doctor Who" show opinion about "David Tennant 
I hate that the fact the David has to leave the [Dotor Who] show. It sad, so sad he was an AMAZING actor and a Wonderful person. He fits the PERFECT ROLE FOR THE DOCTOR. I cant beleve it.
Why!WHY! WHY! did he had to leave, His the perfect doctor- the good actor-the soul of the show-
the perfect man for the job! It's not fair! NOT FAIR! I'm a major fan of "Doctor Who" I watch all the seasons and episodes. The show was number 1 with him, his the only perfect doctor in the whole world!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:17, 9 November 2008 (UTC) david is an actor born to play the role of the DOCTOR: it not fair hes leaving it like that- it's just.
If you actually are that big a fan and have watched all the episodes, you would know that this is part of the show. The only permanent aspect of the show is the TARDIS. Three seasons isn't even less than average. It is exactly average. Admitedly, I would have liked Tennant around for another season or two. He was a good Doctor, but, assuming we get someone else that's good, the show will go on, and it'll still be good. The only thing I'm concerned about is that it'll move the doctor closer to the end of the thirteenth incarnation (which, if the show still wants to go on, they'll find a way to work around, but still...)
David Who? 
David Who? [pun intended] Is he known outside of UK and BBC-fanboys? --126.96.36.199 16:02, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
this is ridiculous. ya know in the special where the tennant get's to meet davison's doctor and he says,"you were my favorite doctor"; i have seen almost 30 yrs of doctor who, just in the last 2 because of tennant's portrayal. He IS my doctor and honestly, he's not that good of an actor. He's adequate, but not great, and he'll never find a better role. None of the previous ones did, minus pertwee who had done most of it before he got there. bottom line, bad move for all of us. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:26, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
program airing dates 
I have read that the first of the four specials for 2009 was to be aired on April 11, 2009. Is this the scheduled time for airing the Easter Special in the UK or is this the time that Planet of the Dead was to air in the United States? I watched the program on April 11 and it was a different program. The Sontaran Stratage was the show that was aired. I am concerned because I don't want to miss any of the specials.
It is almost breaking my heart that David Tennant is leaving the show. He is by far the best actor yet for the character of the Doctor. It is going to be almost impossible to fill David's shoes. I wish the next Doctor all the luck possible-184.108.40.206 17:03, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

- The UK-aired special yesterday was Planet of the Dead. Fun with a cat burgalar and a London bus. --Brian McNeil / talk 17:11, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
I've been a fan of The Doctor for as many years as I can remember. Simply put he is the best Sci-Fi Character to ever bless us on TV. A leading charater who doesn't always have the answer but some how finds a solution. David was by far the best of The Doctors and unfortunatly I don't see how the 11th Doctor can even imagine to live up to what David has given us over the few years that he did as The Doctor. I will always remember The Doctor (David) traveling the universe with Rose as they made a perfect pair for Doctor Who! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:45, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
David Tennant: Leaving Doctor Who 
I'm an American fan who watches old doctor whos on the internet and the new show on SyFy. Its so sad, I love him, in Doctor Who and on Harry Potter. We will all miss him. David, I LOVE U!!! GOOD LUCK IN HAMLET
also, hamlet is my favorite shakespear play, so i am happy for you! I hope you play Hamlet, you would be perfect for that role

Okay, A, Izzard would be horrible for that role. And B, how can you call david annoying, he is hilarious, hot, and a great actor. Trust me, i am the biggest fan in america, and would be the biggest in UK if i lived there
dont leave! 
david, you are so awsome you should never leave the show. you are the best doctor since the guy with the celery on his breast pocket. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:25, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
I hate the new doctor Matt Smith. He is so full of himself and doesn't care about what David Tennant has to say. Matt Smith is also too young for the role of the doctor I think. Next they will be having an 8 year old play the doctor, seeing as the actors get younger as the doctor gets older. David Tennant, was really upset when he was talking to Matt. Matt didn't give a Damn.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs)

Comments from feedback form - "Why would he quit a big chance..." 
Why would he quit a big chance to be immortalized as Dr. Who?He could have done many other series.I wish he comes back in a small series playing his clone in another reality or another universe.Lets not forget about his daughter whom is presumed to be dead but he don't know.There are so many unfinished gaps that I want to see the end or possibly an ongoing continuation.I love Dr, Who series.I got used to David Tennant from the first time I saw him.I have to get used to this new Dr who and it has not been easy.I try to forget that it is not David Tennant playing himself and just watch it for the love of the series.I heard he was the voice in that animated cartoon he did some time ago.If he can't be Dr who he could at least do many more 3D animated cartoons. I really liked it and hope he makes many more. —126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:04, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Just one question... 
Doesn't the Doctor only get 14 incarnations? They're up to 11. What are they going to do in 15 years, because obviously, people will care.
- Good question. This may interest you:
