The shorter story length and and thus the faster pace format of the show just does not allow for an older doctor. The new series put a heavy focus on running around. Someone like John Hurt is not going to run around, if they threw in more 2 parters an older Doctor could work, but again, the current format is fast paced and geared towards a younger 21st century audience.
Be it a man or a woman, whoever is cast will be between 25 and 45 years old.
