The Doctor Will See You Now

Last night I finally got around to watching Skyfall, the most recent James Bond film. You know, the one that came out in 2012. Hey, what can I say, my duties as CEO of Bob Canada's BlogWorld keep me really busy, what with all the pandering to the shareholders and the hostile takeovers and the mass layoffs. I ain't got time to watch every movie that wanders into the cineplex. Sometimes it takes me a while to catch up.

Anyhow, I liked the film OK as Bond movies go, but I really liked the new Q, played by actor Ben Whishaw. It struck me that he'd make a darn good Doctor on Doctor Who, if they ever decide to cast younger again (which I think is inevitable).

Whishaw's got that whole "nerdy yet cool college professor" thing going on, just like previous Doctors David Tennant and Matt Smith. Heck, there were some scenes in Skyfall in which he even acted like the Doctor. The BBC could do a lot worse than to hire him.

Who knows, maybe one of these days after current Doctor Peter Capaldi retires, we'll see Ben Whishaw at the controls of the TARDIS.
