Any second now on OG probably (definitely already there on the SFX forum I occasionally frequent)

I am... not exactly shocked about that.

Well, maybe a little.

I'm completely unshocked. I anticipated it...

I'm surprised for the same reason I was surprised Tate was on for a full season: I thought they'd be too busy with other things.

Oh - sorry, I misunderstood - I thought you were surprised about the reaction to the news, not surprised at the news...

Eh, now I'm confused.

I'm a little surprised that there is wank already - Moffat is overwhelming popular (at least in terms of writing, his personal opinions not so much).

LOL ! Sorry for the confusion.

Moffat's writing is very popular with a lot of people - but some, so I hear, are already lamenting the fact that's he's less of a Ten/Rose shipper than RTD. (I don't go to the places where such things are discussed, but some folks on my FList have mentioned it...)

Personally I hope he'll bring Jenny in as a companion - plus someone else. I'd really like to see a long-term TARDIS trio for a change and if I can't have my "Dream Team", then I'd settle for Doctor plus Jenny plus one.

True, that - I sincerely doubt we'll get much Rose references in his era (how much we get of Martha really depends on if Moffat wants to bring UNIT into things or not. I don't know his thoughts on the UNIT era...)

I'm... not at all opposed to Jenny as companion. It's very much back to basics, that. And yes, could open to the new other companion being a male.

I don't either - not that I've gone looking for his thoughts, particularly. I guess it also depends on whether certain rumours about Martha are true as to whether we get to see more of her on DW again...

A Doctor plus Jenny plus male companion would be a very interesting dynamic. Especially if we get a new, older actor playing Eleven (if the rumours that DT will go with RTD are true)...

Fifteen minutes on the OG, 24 hours on LJ?

OGs already working on it - they have a 'Moffat must go' thread already, although its a spoof. I hope.

I didn't actually go into the threads for the sake of my blood pressure.

Pity. There's some amusing stuff about why Moffat must go because Doctor Who requires an exec who can be abbreviated to three initials ala JNT and RTD.

It is a parody thread, I've seen it.

That said, I would put money on at least one person taking it seriously.

Don't care, yay the Moff!
(I just want to see the back of RTD, when you get down to it.)
Also, is anyone surprised? At all?

More surprised that Moff wasn't too busy with his Hollywood projects.

I'm pretty certain I got the icon off you originally.

I've never actually tried a Banana daiquiri.
