Who would be the new Doctor

Postby dustybird on August 1st, 2013, 10:32 pm

Hello all,
Since Matt Smith is leaving, who would all of you like to see to take over as the
new Doctor? Of course he has to be English and hopefully a little older. I really loved
when they showed John Hurt as the Doctor, he is one of my favs. I think a lot of the
younger viewers want a sexy dude but to me the Doctor is not a pin up model.

My favourites for the role are Benedict Cumberbatch or Anthony Head. Bandersnatch because he is ginger & his eyes look much older than his face. Anthony Head because he's older and he has a certain charm.

Great picks! Damien Molony would not be a bad choice if they pick a younger
actor. I liked him as Hal on Being Human, he was very good at shifting moods from evil
to insecure in a heartbeat. Still an older Doctor would be cool. How
about Bill Nighy? Paul Bettany????

Probably not Bill Nighy. Don't get me wrong - he's a great actor. I just don't think he is the Doctor type. I liked him in the role of the Vincent Van Gogh expert. Maybe he could do a villain at some point. Paul Bettany isn't really that old. ;) He could be interesting, though I don't really know the scope of his acting skills, so I can't really judge either way. I don't think I saw the kid in anything, but he seems interesting. I guess we'll just have to let them surprise us. There were some rumours about Rory Kinnear, but he denied it all, so it was probably just a false trail so that they would have enough time to ask whomever they want without anyone knowing.

Is Rory Kinnear a good actor? I have not heard of him here
in the States.

I only saw him do comedy. He is alright, but I don't think he would be a good Doctor. When he denied being the next Doc, he also admitted to never watching the show, so he's definitely not getting the role now. I still think Anthony Head would be great. I somehow feel that the Doctor should be a bit older. I'm also tired of this constant smooching in the TARDIS, so I'd welcome more of a father figure for a change.

I'd like to see Sean Pertwee-but not as a carbon copy of his dad. There's also Rupert Grint. Then the Doctor would finally be ginger. LOL :lol:

I hope to be proved wrong, but I doubt they have the guts to pick someone over 40, and are more likely to pander to those who want a pseudo s£x symbol.

I say get Tim Curry!
