@jamesmoran Matt's been a wonderful, wonderful Doctor. This generation's Troughton, for me. I'll miss his Doctor so much.

@wilw Matt Smith is not your bitch. If he's finished being The Doctor, the only thing we say is, "thank you."

@BrianLynch Matt Smith quits Doctor Who. That show is SUNK, can't see anyone else in the role.

@warrenellis You won't be as excited about Doctor Who when Operation Yewtree nails him for trapping young girls in a box all through the 1970s.

UPDATE: still haven't been confirmed as the new Doctor Who. Fashioning new "bowel disruptor" variant sonic screwdriver regardless.

@WilliamShatner I'm tickled that you'd like to see me as the new DW but TPTB already dismissed me once %26 I don't know how I feel upstaged by a blue box ;-)

@JamesGunn The obvious pick for Dr. Who would, of course, be @Michael_Rooker . The world needs a Who who can tear out people's thoraxes with his teeth.

@THEBRYANHITCH Peter Dinklage as the new Doctor. Could be a real game changer.

@Baddiel I could pitch for Dentist Who RT @TracyAnnO : You were meant for this moment the 1st Jewish Dr. Well not the 1st Jewish doctor but you know.

@MuseZack Don't mind me, I'm just a writer from the first Thor, but if Marvel doesn't get @bearmccreary to score the sequel they're missing out.
