If they wanted to go older, Bill Nighy might be a decent pick.

He's odd enough. Was fantastic as Billy Mack in Love Actually.

I wonder if they went older and well known again if Robert Lindsay would be good. I know he's in bad BBC1 sitcom My Family but he's not half bad as a serious actor...

Sylvester McCoy has said that it should be Billy Connolly :lol:

Great little interview with the 7th Doctor, it's nice to hear him talking about the show so enthusiastically still :D

Ah, this is tough, isn't it? Well, if I'm being unrealistic (as usual), then my Dream Doctor would be this musician fella:

Image

And while I'm dreaming, let's travel back in time a few decades:

Image

My Main Man Robyn Hitchcock would make such a fantastic Doctor. Words would do me no good in this situation, honestly. He's perfect for the role. Just have a listen to his music and I'm sure you'll see (hear?) why.

And my second choice, which is slightly less unrealistic but still pretty unlikely, is this Scottish Conan Guy (haha):

Image

This face. I see so much kindness in it, and I think that's important. And dear god, he's funny. Great comic timing, naturally, and plenty of wit to match. And, given half a chance, I think he's fully capable of portraying the more dramatic aspects necessary to the role, such as the Doctor's turns from mischievous and silly to deadly serious. Also, no changes to the accent, please. Let's have him as he is. Craig Ferguson, everybody.

Image

In the end, I don't care about age, race, physical attributes, whatever. Whoever they choose, they've got to be able to act the part. They have to convince me for forty-something minutes every week that they ARE the Doctor, you know? Nothing else matters.

Welcome to the forum boomstickblues :thumbsup:

All great choices, I think you're spot on with saying that they just have to convince us that they are the Doctor :D

Wow, quick response. Thanks very much, Sandi. Just discovered this place (this thread, really), and just had to post my silly ideas on the matter, ha. Love your icon, by the way. I've got such a weak spot for Simon. He always looks like a lost puppy <3

I think that the next Doctor when he comes in the next 4-6 years(I happen to think Matt Smith is an excellent Doctor,) The actor must be British... Orlando Bloom awesome choice.... I also think that Bill Nighy is equally as awesome, Nighy could bring some old school doctorin to the show....Bloom would fit in with the current theme of younger Doctors.... tough choice....Rupert Grint would be fun to see play the Doctor, once he has had some more seasoning.... But I would love to see someone play the role, someone I have been dying to see as the Doctor...either as his father's role or as #13....Sean Pertwee.... hope the images were posted...if not you can look em up

Welcome to the forum Akirajay :thumbsup:

Sean Pertwee would be a great choice, his style would be a great reminder of 9 (and 3 ofc), we'd see a very different kind of Doctor I think. Rupert Grint would make a great choice too, but I can't help feeling that he is still a little young, give him 10 years and I think he'd be spot on.

Thanks...yeah I'm all for getting Sean Pertwee in the new DW....I'd like the 13th Doctor to be ginger(like me) or for somehow allow the Doctor to transcend the 12 regenerations and be #14 with red hair.......in all honesty i agree that Grint is too young (for now.)

I had a crazy thought that Sean Pertwee might even replace John Simm as the Master...that would be sweet....bit of some vengeance on the Master's part....

Yes!! Pertwee as a Master, or another semi reoccurring baddie, would be brilliant :thumbsup:

Someone mentioned the guy from the BT ads as a good choice for a ginger Doctor, can't help but agree.
