I dunno, I'd never heard of Eccleston before Doctor Who, what had he been in, a handful of tv dramas written by RTD. Tennant had been in Harry Potter and Matt Smith Party Animals, but I'd still call them unknowns, Eccleston had been in something called The Second Coming, an unknown I'd say.

Aside from many single roles that made him a face on prime time drama. Morse being an early notable.

Let Him Have It was a very high- profile film with favourable reviews. He had the starring role and it is this that arguably pushed his profile. More theatre and television work followed with much critical appreciation.

Shallow Grave was a populist high profile piece of work.

Our Friends In the North (1997) is an iconic BBC drama production, right lauded to this day, it was even released to home market by the BFI - not the BBC - so important is it as a milestone in British television. This series was screened around the world.

This raised Chis Eclestons profile higher still in terms of public and critical acclaim. He was nominated for the 97 Best Actor BAFTA as a result. This watershed landmark series featured an impressive cast of known and emerging talent.
You may have heard of some other chap who found his own iconic British icon role in 2005..Daniel Craig?.

You may not have heard of Chris, but his impressive theatre credentials alone gave WHO gravitas in the eyes of the public, the industry and the media when announced.

So yes, an unknown.

Maybe it's just me then. By the by, when was he in Morse?

Second Time Around. Series 5 - 1991

Just though - Clocking Off was another ratings winner.

Amelia Pond Kissogram and Raggedy Doctor 11. OMG!!! HELP ME!! I HAVE NOT SEEN HIS FINAL SEASON AND I AM CRYING!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:


I've been crying since Moffat and Smith first appeared. I think Smith is a very warm human being and a good actor who was seriously miscast by a moron.

I don't think Moffat is a good human being...

Sadly I think the hyper 25 thing is right with Moffat. But I would argue that at least since 2005 (I'm too young to know how successful the others were before being cast as the Doctor), it has always been a relative unknown.

1, 2, 3 and 5 were fairly well known, but not in similar roles (if there are any!)
I think the others were relatively unknown???



Tom Baker is hilariously and perpetually self-deprecating in his autobiography,
but the fact is that in the space of probably only about 5 years in the business,
he'd been onstage in several big productions at the National theatre,
and he'd had a couple of extremely well-received striking character parts in big films:
his 'Rasputin' in Nicholas and Alexandra remains astounding to this day,
and he was the main baddie in Harryhausen kids' blockbuster "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad".
He'd also had a part or two on telly.

Really, he'd had as much success as you'd reasonably expect any actor in the first few years of their career to have, and considerably more than most!
God know what he did with all the money he must've got from Rasputin and Sinbad, so that he had to work on a building site. Drunk it all, I suppose.
