Re: Alternate Doctors

For some reason, the BBC's business editor, Robert Peston, has always struck me as having a vaguely Doctor-ish air to him.

Re: Alternate Doctors

I'd love to see a Doctor who's a little older than the recent run. Maybe mid-40s to mid-50s.

Annoyingly, I would have suggested Rupert Graves but he's now appeared on the show as a different character this season. Still, there is a previously-trodden workaround for that problem, where regeneration is concerned...

Other options: Toby Stephens (in a few years time), James Purefoy, Peter Capaldi, Gabriel Byrne. Off topic, but I think Cherie Lunghi would be great as a Time Lady companion or adversary for a slightly older Doctor. She has the right bearing/look for that kind of part, as well as a great voice.

Yes, Peter Capaldi as a somewhat abrasive & cerebral but still charming Doctor, travelling with Cherie Lunghi as his slightly superior but beautiful Time Lady companion...

(they'd need a third, younger, companion too to maintain a broad demographic appeal. Late teen or very early 20s. The added benefit of that would be that it would create quite a dysfunctional but potentially entertaining little TARDIS family.)

Re: Alternate Doctors

Well, Patrick Stewart and Anthony Head would be my first picks, but I don't think they're even an option (although Stewart should at least make a guest appearance already).

Rolling different ideas through my head, here are some actors I'd like to see take up the Sonic Screwdriver:

- Philip Glenister
- Ben Daniels
- Samuel West
- Tobias Menzies (the Doctor with an edge? Menzies' very good playing sinister)

So, looking at the actors I came up with, I guess I'd like to see a more mature Doctor again.

Re: Alternate Doctors

Years ago, before the current series began, there was a push from fans to cast David Bowie as the Doctor if there was ever a DW movie. I wouldn't mind seeing that.

If we were going with Trek actors I'd prefer Alexander Siddig to Stewart.

Patterson Joseph would have been awesome (still might but I think his window has passed)....
GOD, Alexander Siddig would be a great Doctor; he's exotic looking but has kind, expressive eyes. Again, however, I'm not sure TPTB are ready to go with a non-white actor. But I LOVE Sid; I think he'd be a wiser, calmer, more mysterious Doctor.

I really like Patrick Stewart but he doesn't seem the least bit "Doctor-y" to me. To be fair, I don't really see Tennant as a starship captain either.

Oh god I can just imagine it, all said with waving hands and massively wandering pitch;

"Come with me, as we break down the current situation we're in with the Daleks...

... As you can see due to the fluctuations of the Galactic Currency, Skaro has a rather substantial deficit of over 20 billion... POUNDS!"

"But Doctor, what do we do? We're surrounded!"

"Well, It's up the other galactic economic superpowers to bail them out, and hopefully the downturn will rectify itself by the last quarter of 2014!"

Ha! He would be the surliest Doctor since Hartnell.
"utter pillocks!" would have to be his catchphrase.

That's just because he really is an alien.

I'd go with James May as the Doctor, Richard Hammond as his companion and Jeremy Clarkson as the Master.

"Doctor, it's the Daleks!"
"Oh cock."

Personally I'd rather see his brother Robert, I think he's a much better actor.

I found this kind of interesting though, Warren Ellis had a contest to design the 13th Doctor. Some crazy entries.

More of a challenge than a contest, I'm still quite fond of my entry.
