Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

About the only thing I'd say is a given, assuming that Steven Moffat is staying, is that he'll start with the aim of an older - 40 to 50 - Doctor, but as happened last time, that could go out of the window if someone else walks in and gives a killer audition.

Dexter Fletcher is 47.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

My personal favourites are Idris Elba, Damien Molony, and Jason Fleyming.

However, I can only realistically see one get the role, Damien Molony. Although Elba is possible. Just not very.

Knowing my luck though, we'll get a doctor that will be completely against my liking, we'll probably get a bloody female doctor. A travesty.

I'm rooting for Dame Helen Mirren, who apparently has been campaigning for the role.

I can say with conviction that it will be someone that I've never heard of before.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

Some reports have Chiwetel Ejiofor as a possible front runner and I think he would make an excellent Doctor. If you don't know who he is...Google !

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

How would you even say his name. I have to say he is pretty good looking. I am going to agree with awesome Possum (great name) and say it will be someone I have never heard of.

Though Helen Miran and Helen Bonham Carter would be great. Though Helen looks too much like the Doctor's wife (similiar looks) that I don't think it would work. (and sounds a bit creepy to me).

I've never heard it pronounced, but, it looks like it should be pronounced something like:
Chewy-Tell Edgy-oh-fer (That''s how I say it in my brain when reading his name)

Same. Maybe because I don't want a lot of TV anyway. I've heard a few fans speculate they'll get a big name in to boost ratings but I'm still expecting someone relatively young with maybe a few well-regarded TV roles but not a lot more.

I want Idris Elba so I never ever have to hear someone suggest him ever again. Hopefully he'll be typecast as well and never gets a prominent role in anything ever again.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

You know, it's been awhile since we had someone with the last name of Baker in the role of the Doctor. Are there any 30-ish male actors out there right now from a Baker family?

I think he's older than that but Simon Baker is not un-Doctorish.
