Lara Pulver.
She's certainly interested in the role. And she had worked with Moffat.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

The trouble with a lot of the female Doctors being postulated is that they’re very conventionally attractive, and I’m not sure the Doctor should be that hot!

Ok I’m coming at it from a straight male perspective, but it strikes me that in the handsomeness stakes really only Davison and McGann count in terms of past Doctors. You could maybe throw Tennant in there but he is a bit gawky looking. This doesn’t mean people don’t find other Doctor actors attractive, certainly all three modern Docs have had whole armies of admirers, but precious few of the Who actors would be in line for classic romantic lead parts, on the whole they’re character actors,and maybe that’s the way it should be? As I say it’s not that I don’t want an attractive Doctor if they went down the female route (though it would be decidedly odd to suddenly fancy the Doctor) but I’d rather it was the kind of flawed beauty of someone like Garai than the perfection of a Pulver or a Watson.

I agree, if a Doctor is hot (Male or Female), it shouldn't be because they have model/romantic lead good looks, it should be because their quirkiness is so adorable

A Doctor that's just a pretty face, without some kind of quirky flaw(s), just isn't The Doctor, IMHO.

Romola Garai.
Never heard of her.

Googled her. Out of all the female suggestions, she's not that bad, but I only really saw a brief image of her. Could work as a companion though......

Plus with Moffat behind it, it will be as bad as that mess "the doctors wife".
Oooh, it'll be as "bad" as one of the best written, highly regarded stories of the revised series. That would suck....
I hated it. A lot of people I know don't like it either. So dull and boring.

I wouldn't put it past him. But I doubt even Moffat would do it. I have a feeling that although RTD's my favourite writer on the show, he'd be the most likely candidate hire a female doctor. JNT might have done it too if the series wasn't cancelled in 89.

You should watch Atonement, The Hour, Emma, and One Day (though her role in the latter is little more than a cameo).

More than half the internet is built on pointless debate. If we stopped with the pointless debate the place would become a ghost town.

This is the internet, that's real life. See the difference?

Believe me, I don't need a child to tell me the difference between real life and the internet.

Perhaps you missed my point: the internet is made for pointless debate so to discourage it is pointless.

Plus The Crimson Petal and the White. Frankly though if GL’s choice of who would be a good Doctor is based solely on how they look the BBC might as well just trawl the London Underground and gather together the most eccentric bunch of people they can find. Obviously acting ability comes way down the list…

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

This morning, the BBC released a video "thank you" message to fandom from Matt Smith.

See here.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

I love that, though it does just serve to remind me how much I'm gonna miss the guy.

Still two 11 episodes left to watch though

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

What I'd have liked to seen is a trilogy like they did with the Baker-Davison regeneration. Maybe have the 50th, then two more Smith stories, then conclude it with a 12th doctor one.

It's amusing that when I first saw the video, I was reminded of Bob Dylan's classic music video using the same sign technique.
