    Jeremy Piven? Sitcom, Ellen. (Or, arguably, Entourage.) Period drama, Mr. Selfridge. He'd certainly be different. :)

    I don't think I could handle the awesomeness of a Jeremy Piven Doctor. :eek:

    I do wonder if any of the people betting on Peter Capaldi are aware that he's playing Cardinal Richelieu in the new Three Musketeers, which is presumably hoping to last more than one series and which will be shooting for at least six months.

    I'm aware of all of that. Assuming he could escape his contract for series 2, he'd finish shooting Musketeers close to when series 8 of Who would start filming.

    Sigh, Daniel Rigby is only three years older than me.

    Am I the only one who likes Peter Capaldi?

    I could easily see Hugh Laurie as The Doctor and Benedict Cumberbatch as The Master.

    Handy hint. Try picking people who would actually want to spend nine months a year in Cardiff for the next three years.

    As I said when I posted the story, I would love to see him play The Doctor. Not my first choice (Eddie Izzard, Alexander Siddig, Bill Nighy, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Hugh Laurie, Idris Elba...), but I would be interested in seeing him in the role.

    No, obviously it would be Hugh Laurie as The Doctor and Stephen Fry as The Master. Plus, Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson as his companions because why not? :p

    Ah, read too fast. My bad. :p

    And those are really some fantastic out of the box choices. Sid would be... amazing.

    You know it would be great if, for no other reason, because it would be quite different.

    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.

    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.

    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. :lol: 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. ;)

    Freddie Mercury will rise from the grave to provide the music for series 8.
