this is a little off topic but i like dr who. here is something from the dr. who website on the bbc website.

Christopher Eccleston has been announced as the Doctor.

The 40-year-old Salford-born actor will take "a fresh, modern approach" to the role, a BBC spokesperson confirmed this morning.

"Christopher was our first choice", Executive producer and writer Russell T Davies told BBC News. "His casting raises the bar for all of us. It's going to be a magnificent, epic, entertaining journey, and I can't wait to start."

Davies recently worked with Eccleston on religious fantasy drama The Second Coming for ITV.

Jane Tranter, BBC Controller of Drama Commissioning, said: "We are delighted to have cast an actor of such calibre in one of British television's most iconic roles. It signals our intention to take Doctor Who into the 21st century, as well as retaining its core traditional values - to be surprising, edgy and eccentric."

Eccleston himself was unavailable for comment at this time.

The actor first came to public attention playing Derek Bentley in the film, Let Him Have It, although he is perhaps more familiar to the general public as the doomed DCI David Bilborough in ITV crime drama Cracker.

Other TV and movie credits include Shallow Grave, eXistenZ, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Our Friends in the North and The Others.

We're all terribly excited here at Cult!

We're also sorry for the delay in bringing you the news – yesterday we were officially told the role hadn't yet been cast and that an announcement wouldn't be made for quite a while.
