Heck with James Callis. Give us Edward James Olmos! Very Happy

Barring that unlikely event, however...

I honestly wouldn't mind getting a season or two with John Hurt. Give him a "redemption" in the 50th a "Do Over" with the Christmas Special.

A friend of mine who mentioned Matt was leaving a while ago said he heard Ben Daniels and David Threlfall have been mentioned as the final contenders. Have no idea who they are or where he heard that info though.

Watching Ripper Street, I though Jerome Flynn might make for an interesting Doctor.

Personally I'm just hoping for an older Doctor this time around. Preferably 40+. I figure that should get rid of the whole repetitive "the Doctor is so dreamy" Companion dynamic I can't stand.

Google them. They're definitely older actors. But they seem to be odd choices.

My own hope is that they get Irish actor Damien Molony (currently 29) who was Hal the vampire on Being Human in Series 4 and 5. I think he could play a sympathetic, fun, energetic, brooding Doctor (whatever it calls for).

If not him, then surprise us with a great unknown/relatively unknown actor.

Oh, and if you're around on the internet, expect people speculating a black/female/Benedict Cumberbatch (seriously not gonna happen, the BBC is going to be lucky to get him to fit filming Sherlock in his schedule the way he goes)/Hugh Laurie/Stephen Fry/my favorite actor (like me up there) Doctor.

My personal hope is that they don't reveal who the 12th Doctor is before the Christmas special. I would LOVE to watch the episode and wonder who's going to take the TARDIS next.

David Morrissey already showed what a great Doctor he'd be...

...how about making it a reality?

I am reading a lot of speculation everywhere, which is fun! I don't really see the need for an unknown in the role. I think the goal is the best actor who wants it. I also remember that Moffat originally went looking for a 40 year old, but Matt wowed him so much that they went with him. Maybe a 40 year old will wow them this time. Another name I see is Damian Lewis...and he is Ginger!

Will from the Inbetweeners (tv show and movie). I really hope not (this was in jest). Like a lot of fans, I hope they get someone, let's be honest, at least over 30. I doubt it will be anyone old enough to have gray hair (doesn't do well in the ratings, the producers will say), but one can hope.

It will probably be someone 'unknown' or relatively obscure, to keep the costs down. they have done everything up to this point to make it a low budget show again, and I can't see them hiring anyone who would actually demand good pay.

I just don't want any young actors. No one from the Inbetweeners (it was a fine show with fine actors, don't get me wrong), no one from Harry Potter. At least I know that Tom from Being Human is going to be in a new ABC show, so he's out of the picture Razz

Personally, I think it'd be great not to find out who the new Doctor is yet. I know that's impossible these days, what with on-set pictures and the internet... But it would be so nice to find out who 12 is in the actual episode. What a surprise it would be!

Sigh. I can dream.

Agreed. The regeneration won't be a surprise now. I'd like to be surprised on who it is.

(Come on, cast DaMo...)

Early front runners seem to be from the James Bond camp.

Ben Whishaw (Q from Skyfall) & Rory Kinnear (Tanner form Daniel Craig's movies)

Ben Whishaw for me

I did. Still not overly familiar with their work. Don't think I'd have a problem with either of them though.

Definitely will second Morrissey as the Doctor. Love the Jackson Lake Doctor and would be great to see him actually step into that role full time. Unfortunately it'll never happen.

I like Ben Whishaw....but he looks so much like my son, it'd be weird.

My vote is for Martin Freeman.

There were so man front runners when David left, then all of a sudden, we got Matt. And back then I wanted Sean Pertwee. I would still take him in the role.

I don't think there's much point speculating. We're always wrong. Razz They usually go for unknown actors, anywho, so that we have no clue about what they might bring to the character. I prefer it this way.
