My vote goes to Idris Elba.


I'm pretty sure he's out of their budget.

Edit: Other bookmakers are pinning their bets on Ben Daniels. Don't know him well enough to offer an opinion, other than that he's an older white guy. But then, that's why he's likely, isn't it? Any choice outside white guy will, by definition, be higher odds.

Yeah, let's get some EQUITABLE representation for a change - a Canadian Lynx or a Siberian Tiger, perhaps.

Nope. There's only one correct answer:

Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess Violet Crawley.

Someone suggested Joss Wheaton to write and direct the next series, I disagree.

Joss Wheaton is.. the doctor.

Tell me about it! A lot of great potential Doctors have already appeared in New Who at least for an episode or two, it's a real shame. :/ Anthony Head would be brilliant. I would love something along the lines of his Giles, with a touch of Repo Man thrown in for a darker, dangerous side (though Giles could be pretty scary as well, actually). That would've been a good opportunity for a musical episode, too.

Thinking about it, I'd like a change of pace for the Doctor. I love goofy and mercurial, but it would be nice to have a more toned down performance, maybe with someone older.

Daimian Molony, Hal from Being Human, apparently has good odds.

The next doctor will be Raven Symone, that should hit just about every hate group. We got the sexists, we got the racists we even got the Britannians(?)

...I'm Australian, FYI. ;) And even Americans are saying The Doctor should never be anyone but someone who is British. Torchwood is a completely different show. Captain Jack Harkness is fine. John Barrowman is Scottish, close enough to British, he also happens to be part-American and can do both accents brilliantly. That said, a fully American Doctor would not suit the show at all, or its history. It's a British show, an American Doctor just doesn't work.

The Doctor will never be American. Nor will he be British. The Doctor is from Gallifrey. #JustSayin

The character of The Doctor is. It is a British television show. Torchwood was made as an American-influenced spin-off. Doctor Who, as a show, is designed to be delightfully British. I know "The Doctor" is from Gallifrey, I even noted Gallifrey and Trenzalore in the "Doctor Who" thread a few minutes ago. ;)
So.. Your point is... Uh.. Yeah, I'm not seeing a point. Having an American play The Doctor would change the entire dynamic of the show. Hell, the spaceship is a British police phone booth. What, an American actor portraying The Doctor now needs to pilot a Chevrolet? Seems legit.
