The New Doctor is... Answered

During the broadcast of Doctor Who Confidential, BBC1, 17:35 UK time, the identity of the next Doctor will be revealed!

All that can be said with any confidence is that the next Doctor will be male, since David Tennant referred to the next actor as "a lucky chap".

Revealed!

MATT SMITH

Previously seen in "Ruby in the Smoke"

OH! I'll never watch Doctor Who again. Not new episodes anyway. BLECH!

Wait and see - he looks very different in Victorian clothes, and his hair seems to be quite variable.

Ugh. He is sooo ugly. They better work some serious makeup magic-I can't stare at that for an hour.

I don't think he's so bad, honestly. You're probably still mourning Tennant hardcore. I'm trying to let go and realize that while he is the most attractive man in the 'verse, he is not my Doctor anymore. :P

Let's see. The next stage, as I am well aware, is anger. Yeah, then comes bargaining, depression...NEVER acceptance though...

I know, but I'm trying to ease myself out of this with as little sobbing as possible. ;) It's going to be 9 all over again, though. I was weird about Tennant for half of the second season. :P

Me too. But then I realized he's in Gone in 60 Seconds, and he has hair and he's gorgeous! So I can visit him and Nicolas Cage and feel better about it. :D

I did like Mr. Tennant (although he's a bit undernourished too!) However, bring back Tom Baker and his hat and long knitted scarf!

I just saw this! I'm actually quite relieved. I was fairly certain it was going to be David Morrissey, as his name had been tossed about a lot. My friends and I have been trying to convince ourselves that he's not half bad for the past few months. :P But this... this is promising. I remember him from the episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. I haven't seen anything else he's been in, though!

David Morrissey was a strong favourite until (spoiler for non UK viewers)...

He starred as a Victorian who suffered a breakdown when fighting the Cybermen and thought he was the Doctor.

The next series is in 2010. Before then, David Tennant is doing four "Specials".
