Initial thoughts on the BBC's press release announcing Richard E Grant's selection as the ninth actor to play the title role in Doctor Who.

 

Oh joy, oh rapture unforeseen,
For now the sky is all serene;
The god of day -- the orb of love--
Has hung his ensign high above,
Then let the throng
Our joy advance,
With laughing song
And merry dance,
With joyous shout and ringing cheer,
Inaugurate our new career!
Joy, Oh ! divine scintillation
Sparkling from Elysium,
With a cheerful animation
Goddess, to thy shrine we come.
These our nations once divided
Now your magic spells unite,
Where your wing does beat around them
Brotherhood and love delight.
With a kiss bestowed on millions
Embraced in fraternity,
Let us build a world of union
And peace for all humanity.
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
Happy, happy, joy, joy
