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

I'm calling rigby. Its never going to be capaldi in a million years. He just doesn't fit the demographic. I know rigby is in those BT adverts but he was fantastic in that Morecambe and wise thing.

By tomorrow, I reckon he'll be the favourite. This all happened last time with matt smith if I recall.

The bookies are seldom wrong on this.

Ah, read too fast. My bad.

And those are really some fantastic out of the box choices. Sid would be... amazing.
A middle eastern Doctor with a Brittish an upper-crust accent? *arches eye brown quizzically
You know it would be great if, for no other reason, because it would be quite different.
Yeah and he played my favorite Starfleet Doctor. Only second to Dr. Polaski.

I'd love to see it happen but sadly I doubt it will

Blimey! You know I never even realised that was him! He was very good in that...but I'm still not convinced...

As for the bookies, they're wrong all the time, they were calling Capaldi, Kinear and all sorts of people.

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

Film critic James King had a lot of fun trying to suggest candidate Doctor names to Zoe Ball (who will host the Doctor Who special on Sunday) on this afternoon's Film Review programme on Radio 5 Live - even going through the usual "Hello to..." list of Jason Isaacs, Michael Sheen, Stephen Fry and David Morrissey. Ball stated on today's show that she won't be told who it is until 5 minutes before the TV programme on Sunday begins.

Although they weren't name-checked today, I think it's safe to say that Fairport Convention won't be the next Doctor.

The Digital Spy people were saying that it was a non-British actor best known for a sitcom but who had appeared in a period drama.
Jeremy Piven? Sitcom, Ellen. (Or, arguably, Entourage.) Period drama, Mr. Selfridge. He'd certainly be different.
I also immediately thought of Piven. I'm not sure how I'd feel about an American Doctor, but were it in the cards, Piven would be in my top ten for the role.

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

Well the BBC has a list of people who might be the new Doctor.

Looking through the list, the only one who actually excites me is Andrew Scott, although O'Dowd could be fun, would be interesting to have a Doctor with a non English accent.

I still like the idea of Ben Daniels.

Although my top choices remain Idris Elba and Damien Molony.

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

Chiwetel Ejiofor is still my favorite for it, but an "unknown" is always an exciting option. No preconceptions, nothing to distract the audience from seeing whoever it is as The Doctor and just The Doctor.

You mean like McCoy

I looked at that list and wondered if we couldn't discount every last one of them given the BBC have published it. I remember the list they put out before Tennant got the job, and I don't recall him being on the list.

Anyone else notice that Paterson Joseph's name hasn't been mentioned once this time around?

He was great in the Firefly movie, Serenity. when I saw his name/ photo on the list I thought "that would be ace"

The BBC isn't a monolith: chances are that someone on the entertainment desk of the BBC of the BBC news website might have said hello to Moffat at a launch party, but they've probably got no more inside info than the third person along in your next supermarket queue.

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

my question is why is Billie Piper on the list. It is extremely unlikely they will put a former companion as the doctor. No clue on all the others but it sounds more like a fan put it together then a list that Moffet would put together. Though Moffet is a fan but I think he would put away the fan hat when looking for the next doctor.
