       We don't want those daleks coming over here taking our jobs, etc.

       Combining the roles of Leader of the Opposition and The Doctor is going to be a tough gig ...

       Ahh, but that's the cunning bit, when the little man in the dalek suit gets cheesed off, they can just swap him out, and no one will ever know..   

       //Leader of the Opposition   

       Very easy gig, you just have to consistently lose, so never actually do anything for the money..

       //Next Dr Who should be a dalek// But then it would be Dr. What.

       No. You can't pack the mind of a timelord into a mass of genetically grown bubbling hate. One of these newfangled acquired daleks might be a different story.   

       Making the doctor more alien would lose the casual 'Dr Who' watcher's empathy.

       Now *that* sounds like a challenge. I mean, there's no reason in principle why you can't; there would just be a series of interesting practical difficulties.   

       [8th], have you got anything on the boil that would make a suitable starting point?

       I must say, I've hardly watched this new 21st century breed of Doctor Who. After the first few episodes I just lost interest. I now think this is because I underconsciously detected that it was way overproduced, overscripted and far too much effort was being put into it. People don't really like that sort of thing, except at the selecting stage, when they're potentially buying a thing in preference to other competing things.   

       On the other hand, it has put a total stop to me hankering after one day actually starring as Doctor Who, myself.

       Only cats. We'll let you know if we find anything.

       Sounds like there is an artistic limit to a production. Too many people working on a project hides the quirkiness of individual collaborators and reduces the entity to a generic great rather than something unique and special. Too much money does spoil the broth.
