He wouldn't be. I've admired the guy for years, ever since he was the best thing about Ultraviolet (which is saying something) but he's not the Doctor. He's completely wrong for the part, and its not cos he isn't a good actor (cos he is) and it isn't about ethnicity (hey I'm the guy who'd still have Patterson Joseph).

My thoughts exactly, ever since I saw him in Survivors and people have mentioned him, I could totally picture Paterson Joseph as the Doctor, but, as you say, as good an actor as Idris Elba is I just can't imagine he would work out for The Doctor

That would be quite left field, I think he can be quirkier than he's had the chance to be, certainly his mulleted turn in Ashes to Ashes was funny...

Re: Who would you like to portray the 12th doctor?

Well, Hugh Laurie is currently out of a job. Perhaps better for the next Master or another guest shot though.

I like the unknown/not-yet-established actor thing though. Smith is just The Doctor. I don't have to worry about seeing the man behind it or another character he has played, he is just The Doctor. Period. End statement.

No further left field than Christopher Eccleston to me. MacFadyen has a great stage voice and can be a very active Doctor and he's certainly got the dramatic acting down in my mind.

If you're going to cast a Harry Potter alumnus, Emma Watson.

Yes, I'm being entirely serious.

I could totally see Emma Watson playing a very cool cross between the two Romanas with a touch of Ace or Leela as Doctor 12

YES Hugh Laurie MUST play either The Master or Thomas Covenant, my two dream roles for him

Re: Who would you like to portray the 12th doctor?

Well, suggestions of Rupert Grint and Emma Watson don't make me feel so crazy about my most outrageous spitballing of Jason Statham in the role.

More realistically, I think I more want to see some bold choice for #13 for sure but maybe #12 could be a stepping stone with someone a little less cute and cuddly than Tennant and Smith. I think that mold is becoming quite accepted though as the norm and might be hard to break.

Re: Who would you like to portray the 12th doctor?

CAD mocked the Statham-as-Doctor idea in one of the comic's rare funny strips. I've not seen Looper yet or read reviews, but based on the trailer it looked very much like what I think a high-octane action timey-wimey Doctor Who would be.

I wouldn't object to Statham as the Doctor.

For a more realistic choice, I'd like to see James Frain as the 12th Doctor.

Read my first post! I want Idris Elba to be doctor #12 too, I think it'd not be a too odvious choice, plus he's a dark character, and would apeal to the minorities.

I don't like the idea of a female doctor.

That's absurd and a little insulting. Matt Smith is young but that doesn't mean that he necessarily appeals to young people, nor does he appeal to football players or any other group he happens to be a part of.

Eddie Izzard.
Beat me to it. I've been hoping for Eddie Izzard since 2004 when BBC first announced Doctor Who's return.

I would die happy if Idris Elba was selected.

Bill Nighy's name has been tossed around almost as long as Izzard's.

Alexander Siddig would also be a great choice.

That all being said, I'm sure it'll be someone that most of us have never heard off.

Re: Who would you like to portray the 12th doctor?

Actually wouldn't mind McFayden. He's anonymous-looking, which would help with the reversal from the Lonely God. I know this is childish, but I can't stand Paterson Joseph's name. I just keep thinking that it should be Joseph Paterson. I would not want to look at those credits.

Tom Hiddleston would be my favorite.

hmm....how about:



I can totally see it. He would be a very forward, very forcefull and often pretty bitter Doctor, with a dash of black humor.
