Eccleston Not Izzard

A while back I posted an entry about who will play the lead role in the Dr. Who series when it returns in 2005. It turns out that the rumours are false and instead the lead role will be played by Christopher Eccleston (who some of you may know from the movie Shallow Grave) and not Eddie Izzard. I thought Izzard would have been a good choice, but I think Eccleston will do just fine.
