Anthony Daniels plays C3PO. Ben Daniels was the senior crown prosecutor (the Sam Waterston equivalent) in the first four seasons of Law & Order: UK -- with Freema Agyeman as his junior prosecutor, so it would be kind of a turnabout thing if he went from L&O:UK to Doctor Who. (Not to mention that after he left, Peter Davison took over as the DA-equivalent character!)

No. A thousand times no. Keep Russell Brand far, far away from Doctor Who. I'll take another Peter Kay episode before Russel Brand.
Now let's not be too hasty here...
Yeah, you're right. I take it back. I'll take another...*shudder* James Corden episode before Russell Brand.
The odd thing about Corden is that I don't particularly like him, yet I really like Craig...

You think wrong.
Well done! If this does turn out to be correct you'll get to brag about it for years.
I intend to.

No one remembers that I was the only person to correctly predict the 11th Doctor's look

I would murder every single person to have David Thewlis as the next Doctor.

Or Kevin McKidd. He can finally be ginger.

Well, since David Thewlis is a person, that might not turn out as well as you'd like...

Or do you mean "every unmarried person?" Wait, that wouldn't work either, since he's divorced.

Actually, I rather like that idea. Anthony Daniels can certainly be properly posh and if you've ever seen him at conventions, especially in a "master of ceremonies" capacity (which I have), you'll realize the guy is an absolute scream! His sense of comedic timing is positively wicked!

Seriously, I think he'd make a great Doctor!

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

Anthony Daniels is sixty-seven. I could see him as a one-off guest star (perhaps as Borusa, if Gallifrey ever returned), but not as the Doctor.

I know he can be very funny, but from the 'stories' from Star Wars sets he can be very difficult to work with too. Personally I would say no to him, I would love an actor who'd be here for ten years who'd make the Doctor 'his role' for this incarnation similar to Baker.

Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

I think the next actor should be in his early 30's because anything older nowaday's could be an issue.

There's alot physical stunts and running around in the new series. Next thing you know we'll get a news headline that reads

"12 doctor sprains ankle. Production delayed"

67? Mercy, I had no idea! Then again, the last time I personally saw him at a con was around 2000, maybe 2001.

Never mind.

Sincerely,

Re: Is This The Next Doctor?

Hmm...........well right now I'm just beyond glad that the next doctor will not be female or Benidict Cumberbatch, but I'm not sure about this Ben Daniels. He seems a bit unsauitable for the role. However I could be wrong. The only way I could imagine him play the doctor is in a way simular to Eccleston with a touch of McGann maybe. I've never seen him in anything or ever heard of him, but if he plays the role right, he could work. With him in the role, does this mean doctor who will become more serious and mature, let it be so!!!! (I can just tell by some of his pictures that he looks serious all the time and I can't imagine him cracking a joke anytime soon or riding a dinosaur and wearing a stupid helmet on an old bike like Matt Smith.
