    Good point, but in making that decision I suspect that they'll have lost most of the show's original fans, so let's hope for the sake of the producers that it doesn't adversely affect the viewing figures.

Putting it up against Corrie, which had some very strong storylines at the time) was just the thing to do to make an excuse for low audience figures.

    Try the Big Finish audios. So very good in the most part and the production is good too for a good stereo to get its teeth into. I'm currently starting again with the Dalek Empire series (Sooooosan Mendezzzzz - in a rumbling deep voice... ) which I find absolutely brilliant

    been there, done this: Same score, same result. The tests available in German usually are the same test you originally posted here, with just the questions translated to German.

    Don’t give a f*ck about the result, actually it’s nothing new for me. As long as my bicycle loves me, everything is just fine.

    Another interesting online personality test using the Briggs Myers model is here.

    My type came up as an ENFP. The model has 16 broad personality types.

    One issue I have with these type of tests is that it is difficult not to 'game' the test. Specifically one often steers ones answers to what we would like to be

    rather than what we are.
    I got ENFJ on that one.

    Am an INTP here. Taken a few tests and always the same results, just took that test linked above - there must be something in it? As for Asperger's, nope, but was an ADHD kid now thankfully the H is now gone, so ADD. All this really means is that my attention span is very low unless I am engaged, but if I am, then I enter what is known as "hyper concentration". Am a constant daydreamer, something common to ADD and INTP.

    Interesting common outcome regarding INTP:

    "You have marginal or no preference of Thinking over Feeling (1%)"

    22 - which didn't surprise me. I don't have aspergers tendencies much at all, not particularly obsessive about anything, but I am quite strongly anti-social, especially in groups larger than 2 or 3.

    I think a female Dr Who is a great idea.
    Mind you, the show has been crap since the demise of Patrick Troughton, imho!

    And, in that respect, you're not alone. However, as I'm completely the opposite (very little fazes me socially), I've always wondered what causes such 'shyness' in someone?
