Ah, the doctor getting teh same body as the Master? That will cause fanfic fan heads to explode.
How about having them regenerate near each other at the same time and they "mix". The resulting doctor is the doctor most of the time but sometimes...lets say..when he gets angry...the Master surfaces.

hmm....how about:

I'm thinking a spacetime paradox worthy of both Who and TNG would result if such a thing occurred.

You can never have enough paradoxes ;-) But seriously...they would probably not be able to pay his price anyway.

I have no idea how it works with actors pay...isn´t there some kind of minimum pay depending on how famous someone is? Of course he could always say "hey I really like this...I make you a good price"...?

Yup, that'll be about the size of it.
This. I had no earthly idea who Matt Smith was before he turned up wearing David Tennant's suit, but damn if he didn't own the role. As for what characteristics I'd look for, I think that the most important trait is the ability to be both whimsical and show the kind of world-weariness that belies the apparent age of the actor.

Oh, and there's zero chance that the next Doctor will be played by an older actor.

I dunno, I think the next actor will be older than Matt Smith...of course how much older is the question

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

I am kind of fond of Rowan Atkinson's Ninth Doctor in "The Curse of the Fatal Death," perhaps he could take on the role within the canon.


Seriously though, while we are expecting, is there any idea of how long Matt Smith might be willing/allowed to keep the role? I'm not saying I do or do not want a new Doctor, but if my understanding of the series is correct, the Doctor has been in his Eleventh form a lot more than any of his regenerated forms.

The eleventh Doctor is one of the Doctor's longest-living incarnations. The tenth Doctor is, oddly, one of the shortest. (The shortest living is probably the fifth, though anyone who believes that "Rose" is a post-regeneration story would argue that the ninth is the shortest living Doctor.) However, that the Doctor has lived for several hundred years in this particular body is no reason for Smith to leave -- or for the BBC to force him out.

Smith's contract was reportedly for three series with an option for two more. That would mean his contract would be up either before or with the Anniversary special. (The confusion is that it's not clear if the Anniversary special is, in production and commissioning terms, part of the seventh series or not.) If he and the BBC exercise the option, then he would be around for two more series.
