Who do you want to play the 13th Doctor?

Now that we know the identity of the soon-to-be 12th Doctor it's time to speculate on the actor to play the 13th! Ready?...Go!

Go away! Go away before we all die laughing!!!
Thing is, we will be starting to wonder about this by Boxing Day...
Poor Star Trek fans. Only ever had five captains. They miss out on all this...*

*Well, six. Or seven counting the two Kirks. Or a lot more counting the books. Or...

I think if we got Sir Patrick Stewart on Doctor Who, he'd be better off as a re-occurring character. Maybe as an uber-villian, like Omega, Rassilon, or the Master.

I'm hoping for a female 13th Doctor. It could be a symptom of him running out of regen-ergy.

Re: Who do you want to play the 13th Doctor?

If they go beyond 13, I have an idea. How about Sir Ian McKellen? He could do this: Regenerate back into the First Doctor and thus his entire existence is an endless loop.

Alexander Siddig. Cate Blanchett (it would never happen though). Alan Tudyk.

I know she's not a Brit, but I think Vera Farmiga has the right presence for the Doctor and she's a phenomenal actress.

In the middle of the next season, Peter Capaldi regenerates into... Peter Capaldi.

With Hurt being an unseen Doctor between McGann and Eccleston Capaldi is 13.

Re: Who do you want to play the 13th Doctor?

Capaldi is 12. The only ones calling him 13 are a few fans. Hurt's Doctor will likely wind up being a Doctor that never was.

As far as who should play the 13th Doctor, it is simply way, way too early.

Sorry. I forgot counting Hurt wasn't allowed.

I mean, GOD FORBID we get an interesting plot twist that reveals Eccleston, Saint Tennant, and Smith are actually Doctors 10, 11, and 12. Gotta have the bog standard Moffat era paradox BS to make Hurt not count so Gallifrey Base type fans don't throw a hissy about NuWho Doctors being renumbered.

Re: Who do you want to play the 13th Doctor?

How can you break the meaning of established names and events like The Eleventh Hour and The Fall of the Eleventh? We can't allow that to happen. If the reset button is not pressed on Hurt, I am not watching Doctor Who ever again.

Until the Christmas Special airs that is.

Re: Who do you want to play the 13th Doctor?

It's marketing. The Tenth Doctor is the Tenth Doctor and the Ninth Doctor is the Ninth Doctor. It's as likely as Jim Kirk changing his name to Tits McGee.

Only, don't mention the Cartmel Masterplan or the resident guardians of the unknown unknowns will jump on you like a pack of rabid dingoes.
