    This is the very strange reality with this guy - no one I know has ever heard of him. Even the Netflix show he is best known for is fringe - I don't know anyone who has heard of it.
    And yet online all I hear is that this show has 55million hits etc, this guy has 2million Instagram followers etc, and is a megastar apparently who will lift Doctor Who into the stratosphere...

I mean I guess that means he at least has some base following. Presuming the majority of them are real (I would assume so?). Does not mean they will watch any given show though.

    It seems to me that people who live on these social media sites believe that these places are the world. But in reality they really do not amount to much when you translate to the mass public arena.

True as far as I can tell, but I do not follow social media that closely to be honest. Outside of messaging friends and memes.

    I think he is probobly a good enough actor, but with a public still rejecting Jodie Whittaker I am nervous about this choice. An unknown actor, the first black actor replacing the first female in the role, and she proven as being a step too far for the mass audience... \(euh\)

For many I honestly think a black man is less of a jump than a woman, speaking bluntly and overally generally for the public at large. It does not matter to me either way so long as he has the charisma for the part.

I mean I would be lying to you if I said I knew who David Tennant or Matt Smith were before I saw them in Dr. Who though.

Of course those are home runs in most respects and one can hardly expect a repeat of that, but you do need that sort of energy, charisma and presence in addition to good writing and promotion to even have a shot at this point.

With all the folks lost, it basically is a relaunch at this point. Just winning back the fans that left (not the broader audience) is going to be a bit of a battle because of how things have gone down the last few years.

Look Raist bunnies...
