I don't know David Tennant.

Nor even if I have his name right... but it just occured to me, and I felt the need to share, that when Mr tennant's upcoming tenure as the even newer Dr Who (than Eccleston) is over, the next Dr should be portrayed by Hugh Laurie.

He's the guy who used to work with Stephen Fry. And was the mad as a hatter Prince in one of the Blackadder series. And he was Bertie Wooster.

And he's on our screens right now playing Dr House, a curmudgeonly American(!) painkiller addicted cripples house surgeon. And he's terrific. He gets all the Edmund Blackadder-like lines in this one.
