As anyone whom has had the telly on, be it tv, dvd, etc. An actor is only as good as the roles they choose, but sometimes we all see, good actors make really crap, cheesy, movies to suit fame, fortune,etc. I admire Mr.Ecclestons roles, he appears to do what makes him feel comfortable, even though I read he really hated the costumes in Elizabeth,(t or f )he delivered an exquisite performance in the role, as well as in A Price Above Rubies, an I will watch Anything with him in it! Besides,as a educated, intelligent 39yr old woman how can you take your eyes off him!

I have had the thrill of a lifetime. By watching Doctor Who, but also, discovering Christopher Eccleston. He is my favorite of the moment, and with my favorites I show my support by watching everything they do. I don't however, have the same feeling with the new Doctor. Nothing against him, I would rather travel in space with Doctor Nine anytime.
