All Change...

The picture above was made by me
Well, this actually happens to be a number of posts I could have done, but I've combined them, as they are all, in a matter of speaking related. I'm just thinking on the topic of 2010. To be honest, everything will be completely new and different. 
We have Russell T. Davies leaving, the amazing head-writer of Doctor Who, who has provided us over these four years with scary and action action-packed to sad and emotional scripts. Producer Phil Collinson left a while ago, to move to Manchester, and had been at the very heart of the show since 2005. He will not be producing the specials. Instead, we have Tracie Simpson and Nikki Smith, and then Piers Wenger for the fifth series. Then we also have Julie Gardner, moving on after 2009, who has also been on the team for the whole of the new series. 
The biggest change is David Tennant, the tenth Doctor. That's all I can really say about him really, because you all know the sad news. So, who will be the next Doctor? The answer to the question everybody want to know is... we don't know! Rumours have been flying around over the internet. Some good suggestions, but others are just ridiculous. Even people who have been on the show before! James Nesbitt, one of the actors speculated to take the role in 2010, has recently denied the rumour, saying that it would be "career suicide to step into the shoes of Tennant". It is true in fact, that Doctor Who does change your life, and that is partly why David Tennant wanted to leave. It's not that he actually wants to leave, it's that the producers will be having to pull him away from the Tardis, when he reaches the age of 90 or so! 
More recently, the Sun have published an article, saying that the show might have a black Doctor, a completely new direction to go in! They said that the BBC was near the stage of signing Colin Salmon, Doctor Moon in the Library two-parter this year, and more renowned for his role in the James Bond films. Colin has not yet announced that he will or won't, but seeing as only the Sun have published the news, it seems very, very unlikely. More so, as the BBC have also denied it. (they must get very fed up with the Sun). But not so unlikely of a black Doctor.
The BBC have denied that the new Doctor will be announced on Children in Need this Friday, after Terry Wogan's remark that he might be. Of course, he was most likely just fibbing to see how many sources would pick up on the story, and it worked! Instead, they will announce the casting early next year.
Another big change will be Murray Gold. This has not been officially confirmed yet, but the outstanding composer may be leaving the show after the specials next year! He has provided us with the best music in the universe for the dazzling show, but will the show suffer with a new composer? Yes, the show is about change, but it seems that nearly everything is changing, apart from we know the Doctor will be zooming round the universe in his little blue box, and the show may still be called Doctor Who. And God knows who the next companion will be...
Hopefully new showrunner, Steven Moffat, will have a positive contribution to the show, and take it into a fantastic new direction...

As much as it kills me to see so much change (namely the change of the doctor and Mr. Gold's departure), I do believe - or would like to believe - that all this change will add to why we love the show so much. The show has been through a lot of changes and is still standing. Hopefully, this will insure that its around for at least another 5 years.

Though, since the Doctor can only regenerate 12 times, aren't we cutting it close here? Have you wondered what they around going to do when its time for the 12th Doctor to move on?

I was thinking the same thing the other day, but because it's all sci-fi, they'll get around it somehow! :)
