    I think he is a great actor, but does this mean the Doctor will be portrayed with an American accent? I am definitely excited and hope the person will stay around for awhile.

    Is William Petersen of british nationality or was that a joke?No offense, but Mr. Petersen's far too serious to play a versatile role as the Doctor.

Just a lot more complex than most people would care to think:Petersen would then play a part which is performed by someone from the US pretending to be a Briton & has a faked US accent. What a US accent sounds like is beyond me. I'm accent-neutral (US English)

    Does Dr. Who HAVE to be portrayed by a Brit?

    Hee! I'm glad to see someone else is riffing on the William Petersen notion — I've been making the claim that he's the new Who since Tennant announced his coming departure. CSI: Gallifrey! Well, the BBC is supposed to be pandering a bit more to the US market, with their LA office run by Julie Gardener.Seriously, though, I doubt the BBC could afford Petersen for anything, given his salary on leaving CSI. But he would make a fantastic Doctor.
