A Quote from Stephen Moffat (via i09

"Although I loved Peter Davison and Paul McGann, probably the best two actors in the role, I don’t think young, dashing Doctors are right at all... He should be 40-plus and weird-looking — the kind of wacky grandfather kids know on sight to be secretly one of them."

While I've enjoyed watching many doctors young and old over the years the words "wacky grandfather" send shivers through my soul. And not the good sort, either.

My ex-cubemate Whofan pointed out that that was an old interview, given before the show was revived.

I'm thinking Troughton or Pertwee wacky grandfather, not McCoy. NEEDS MOAR PERTWEE.

Thank god. I honestly can't imagine the show as revived with a 'wacky grandfather' as the central character. Even one like Pertwee.

Damn. Eddie Izzard might fit wacky, but not grandfather. :(

Oh man, Eddie Izzard... Sadly, I think all the people I can think of will be too expensive for them to cast. :(

I love Paul McGann. HE DESERVED A TV RUN. HE COULD HAVE BEEN THE GREATEST DOCTOR EVER.

Paul McGann was great. He was even great being all depressed and muddy in famine ridden Ireland.
