    That's a ridiculous assumption.

    It could be a white guy in his late twenties!

    I don't think they'll go twenties twice in succession - they'll want a little older as a contrast.

    I'm not at all familiar with the man, but I keep hearing the name Tim Vine in connection with this.

    Tim Vine looks a lot like Peter Davison.

    He's too doughy though. He looks like a Flump.

    Not necessarily...they could continue the "new Who" trend and go even younger! Maybe they'll hold a Blue Peter competition to select the next Doctor, drawn from that show's viewership! They've used competitions to cast minor roles for Doctor Who in the past---why not take it to the next level? :lol: :p

    Hmmm... Kill Eleven, troll everyone by saying that since the Doctor's dead on Trenzalore only stories from earlier in his timeline are possible, then do x season(s) with McGann (culminating in a regeneration into Hurt or Eccleston), and at some point have the Doctor's memories copied into a viable body, maybe merging with someone else's mind in the process.

    I'm for it.

    I was watching Amy's Choice last night and I was thinking wouldn't it be funny if they had the dream lord as the next doctor. I looked up the actor Toby Jones he does have a impressive tv/film history. Never knew he was the voice of Dobby.

    To be honest I don't think they could get Toby Jones...

    About the only thing I'd say is a given, assuming that Steven Moffat is staying, is that he'll start with the aim of an older - 40 to 50 - Doctor, but as happened last time, that could go out of the window if someone else walks in and gives a killer audition.

    My personal favourites are Idris Elba, Damien Molony, and Jason Fleyming.

    However, I can only realistically see one get the role, Damien Molony. Although Elba is possible. Just not very.

    Knowing my luck though, we'll get a doctor that will be completely against my liking, we'll probably get a bloody female doctor. A travesty.

    I'm rooting for Dame Helen Mirren, who apparently has been campaigning for the role.

    I can say with conviction that it will be someone that I've never heard of before.

    Some reports have Chiwetel Ejiofor as a possible front runner and I think he would make an excellent Doctor. If you don't know who he is...Google !

    How would you even say his name. I have to say he is pretty good looking. I am going to agree with awesome Possum (great name) and say it will be someone I have never heard of.

    Though Helen Miran and Helen Bonham Carter would be great. Though Helen looks too much like the Doctor's wife (similiar looks) that I don't think it would work. (and sounds a bit creepy to me).

    I've never heard it pronounced, but, it looks like it should be pronounced something like:
    Chewy-Tell Edgy-oh-fer (That''s how I say it in my brain when reading his name)

    Same. Maybe because I don't want a lot of TV anyway. I've heard a few fans speculate they'll get a big name in to boost ratings but I'm still expecting someone relatively young with maybe a few well-regarded TV roles but not a lot more.

    So, Richard Madden, anyone? JLC's boyfriend, and he's free from Game Of Thrones now...
