Tennant's kid is the doctor's granddaughter.

Alan Davies, I hope there's a slim chance that he'd get the role.
I don't think I've ever seen him act. He is clever and funny and all that, but he doesn't have the looks nor the right kind of charm to be 'sexy' in spite of them and it seems the Doctor must be some level of sexy these days.

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

I wish they'd go with a slightly older Doctor; I don't like that the character has to be seen as "sexy." I want the mad scientist, Gandolf-like, alien professor sort. I think I'd like to see someone less "young, pretty and hyper" and more of a ''weary,wise and strange." Although I think Matt Smith has the mad scientist down very well.

eta: I LOVE Alan Davies, but I think he's too well know as Jonathan Creek to be considered for Doctor Who.

I think that Steve Valentine would be absolutely perfect for the role.

You can have both.

There are plenty of men in their 40s and even 50s who are still considered sexy.

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

Casting to type doesn't matter.

It's become an ad hoc fallacy.

Even if they cast an absolute meh.

Dr Who is sexy, ergo who ever is cast as Doctor who must be sexy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger. His movie career is over and you know you want to see the Doctor say things like 'Mastah, you are a poony leetle girly time lord weet no muscles.' Or 'Hasta la vista Dalek.' Or 'Dat Cyberman was more of a Girlyman.' Or 'I weel geeve dose Veeping Angels someting to cry about - weet my muscles!'


It's okay, I know where my coat is.

^ Actually, he's said he'll be involved in Terminator 5. Other than that, good post.

^Sadly there is. Arnie reprising Conan could actually be quite good, as the character aged in the Robert E Howard stories but a 60-something Terminator? Eeessh.

He's only 65 (66 on July 30th). He'll be back.

Bit old for the Doctor, though.

^ But the Doctor is 1100!

I think age is the least of Arnie's reasons for not being suitable for the Doctor!
