  1. More than McGann? Withnail & I was a fair sized cult classic. For that matter, Capaldi had The Thick Of It going for him, I might put him on at least equal footing as Davison. I *really* hope it isn't Swinton. Regardless of her talents as an actor, a) she is far too brittle , completely lacking in the charm and likability that even the most abrasive Doctors have shown, and b) I find if hard to imagine the BBC would cast a female Doctor quite so androgynous looking. If they are going to take the plunge and cast a woman to play the Doctor, I would figure they would go with someone a bit more traditionally feminine.
  2. Aha, didn't know that one. Good enough.
  3. Not wanting to drag this out, but how would Elizabeth Olsen not be eligible? She is a) a celebrity and b) still alive.
  4. Did you not have the 133-135 arc before? I really enjoyed those.
  5. You missed Christopher Eccleston and Elizabeth Olsen. For shame!
  6. My first "Prog" album was the Asia debut (Prog Lite, granted, but it was the gateway drug) and soon after I became a huge King Crimson fan, especially Mark III. For me, John was one of the Three Kings of Prog Bass (along with Chris Squire and Tony Levin). I knew he was sick for a while, so this is not a complete surprise, but still very sad news to lose such a great musician.
  7. Given that a) Eddie Redmayne recently won an Oscar, and b) actors pretty much have to put their lives on hold to play the lead in Doctor Who, I think we all need to put Eddie Redmayne out of our thoughts. Given that I am sure the BBC will apply pressure to boost ratings, I am thinking conservative choice : youngish, unconventionally good-looking, white male Doctor.
  8. One of three SNL cast members to come from my home town of Ottawa (along with Dan Aykroyd and Mark McKinney). RIP
  9. Possibly the greatest pure vocalist in British Progressive Rock. RIP
  10. I thought Vaughn was a lot of fun in the British TV series Hustle.
  11. This is old, old news, of course, but I just love that this is today's featured article on Wikipedia : "From The Doctor to my son Thomas"
  12. I had no idea Hanson also did The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. LA Confidential is a strong contender for my all time favorite movie.
  13. I don't have the ability to view or post clips from work , but while there are plenty of scenes that make me weep, the most intense is from Dear Frankie, where Frankie says the only words he directly speaks in the movie : "Are you coming back?" Made even more intense from Gerard Butler's expression in the earlier scene where Lizzie tells him, "Frankie wasn't born deaf. It was a present from his dad."
  14. I thought it was officially declared that the most badass name in the world was Staff Sgt. Max Fightmaster.
  15. Frick. Polito was amazing, one of my all time faves Hidden classic performance of his was on the Chris Isaak Show where he showed up as Rhonda, winner of the Win A Dream Date With Chris Isaak contest. First time I ever saw him was in The Freshman and he was brilliant. "These men are FIENDS, Mr. Kellogg!"
