Mr. Eccleston has brought new life into the wonderful Dr Who series. His movies are all well acted and the characters have substance to them. Besides, to quote my daughters, "he's HOT!"

I believe Chris is great doctor. I think David is good but far worse than Chris.

Not only is Chris an incredibly talented and gifted actor but he's drop dead gorgeous as well! Every performance I see him in is so different from the last. He manages to breathe so much life into whatever character he chooses to inhabit! Such a rare treat! I think he did an outstanding job of protraying the Doctor and he will be sorely missed as #9.Cara

Probably the greatest actor of his generation he puts flesh and blood to each of his characters he plays be it Nicky Hutchingson in "Our Friends In The North" or the title role of "Jude".The last of the dying breed of true working class actors who gives 100% of his craft to not only television and film but to theatre work too.Extraordinary but an ordinary man at heart.

Christopher Eccleston is one of the leading lights in the acting profession,his diverse roles have proven this with absolute certainty,his portrayal of Doctor Who was truly an inspired choice all round,giving the general TV viewing public a chance to see this superb actor working at his best. An added bonus is that he is a very handsome,charismatic individual,with his feet firmly planted on the ground,his many charitable works also reveal a heartfelt sympathy with the less fortunate. This man wears his heart and soul on his sleeve with pride.
