The British television and film actor Christopher Eccleston has been named as the new Doctor Who. Americans may remember him as the bad guy in the 2000 version of Gone In 60 Seconds. He was also in The Others (2001), eXistenZ (1999), and Shallow Grave (1994). The 40-year old from Salford, Lancashire is bound to add an interesting new flavor to the character.
