christopher eccleston is the Hugh Cornwell of Dr Who

Post by LAFOLIE »

Very interesting. Just watching an interview with christopher eccleston regarding the Dr Who 50th anniversary, there is an uncanny comparison with Hugh Cornwell over their mutual feeling towards past endeavours. I reckon they would get on over a beer or two!

I'd have liked to have seen Ecclestone involved in the story . For me Tennant stole the show over Smith - he's a better actor IMO , and John Hurt is a class actor too but too short a story to make an opinion on his Doctor . Tom Baker - well I went out of the room at the end and misssed exactly why Tom Baker was involved as - if you take the series history correctly - he would be a 40 yr old Tom Baker not a 70 yr old one , but like I said I missed the exact nature of that bit as I was somewhere else for few minutes . Overall an enjoyable story .
I thought Ecclestone was a good Doctor ..... the Hugh Cornwell of Dr Who ???? maybe ...... ironically I was earlier thinking along the lines of Giants being the Syvester McCoy album :lol: .
All quiet ..........

Coup De Grace must be Colin Baker then?

Yeah, I can see the similarity. It's a pity Christopher Eccleston doesn't seem to like being reminded of his stint as The Doctor; he was my favourite of the new Doctors so far. I don't let it ruin my enjoyment of his work though!

Christopher Eccleston is NOT Hugh Cornwell. He's John Cooper Clarke... :grin:
