They should get that Ian McShane in to play him like he played Lovejoy.

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

Kevin Bacon has been telling people that it's him.

No really, he has.

(He's joking, obviously but wait for it to turn up in The Sun anyway.)

A couple of years ago I'd have been unable to think of worse casting than the former Dennis Pennis. But after his turn as Thoros of Myr in Game Of Thrones, I'd be OK with it.

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

Lonemagpie, I saw him do a Waking the Dead a few years ago and could harly believe it was the same guy. Still I'd never shake the feeling that he was about to say "Oi Davros, do you have a potty in there?" or something...

tmosler, accoring to this week's Radio Times it won't be announced before late August/early September, though I imagine they might bring that forward if they think they're going to be gazzumped.

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

Anyone else feel like Matt Smith hardly had a go? I think it's this split season thing, they don't feel like much more of a season than Tennant's specials year did.

It felt fleeting, but he had a complete arc and had time to change his interpretation over time. I don't think anything was left to be done with 11 and Smith, but do hope the next Doctor is more of a continuation than a major switch in direction, as we just started to have some episodes with a more elderly mannered Doctor this series, it would be a terrible shame to abort it.

Yeah, he's actually had three full seasons, but the way the episodes were scattered around really didn't make it seem like it. I feel like he just got here!

Yea Matt Smith shows 44 episodes, and Tennant shows 49 on IMDB (Doesn't include Anniv or Christmas Special), so Matt Smith will end his run, with only 3 episodes in his straight run less than Tennant, but, yea, it feels like much less.

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

I feel like it is probably the heavy story arcs that make his tenure seem so much shorter rather than the broken schedule of airing the episodes. His whole second season is s blur to me looking back on it.

No, I agree.

The split seasons are part of it. The heavy arcs in each season are part of it (because it makes the stories feel like part of a larger story). I also think it's the presence of Amy and Rory for such a long period of that that contributes to the feeling that Matt didn't have that long a run and was just getting started.

The last week or so I keep thinking how cool it could be to cast Patrick Stewart.

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

I've got a sneaking feeling it's gonna be Tom Ellis...don't ask me why I have nothing to back this up apart from a vague feeling...oh and the fact he won't be returning as Robin Hood in whatever show he's in (Grimm or something) because apparently he no longer has the time

(Edit. Apparently he might be in Downton...drat I thought my Starkers Sense was onto something...)
