"Wheatley's a great character," said chinders.
"Yeah," agreed andres_s_p_b. "He's like Dr. Who if he was an idiot."
"Which Doctor?" I asked. "My ability to see them as idiots varies a lot."
"All Doctors. The overall Doctor. But I was thinking Tennant."
"Yeah," I said. "I can see Tennant as an idiot. Not Christopher Eccleston, though."
"No," said chinders, "Eccleston's more an evil genius."
"Great and terrible, like Galadriel," said andres_s_p_b.
"I'd like to see Eccleston playing Galadriel," I mused. "I think he'd be interesting."
