    Default Who should play the 12th Doctor?

    I'm going to be incredibly sad when Matt Smith leaves since I adore him as the Doctor and as a damn fine actor, but I have to admit I am enjoying thinking about who might follow.

    Will the Doctor's next incarnation be older or younger? Might he be a different ethnicity? Might he not even be a he?

    Any serious suggestions for actual actors who would be a good fit for the role? By serious, I mean try to think of actors the showrunners might audition - anybody who has previously had a significant role in the show is therefore unlikely, as are major Hollywood actors, but other than that all bets are off!

    I would prefer a slightly older Doctor, or someone young with a better costume. No fez, bizarre hair, etc.

    I'd like to see Damien Molony as the Doctor.

    These are my picks for the 12th Doctor. I may think of more when the shock of Matt leaving has worn off a bit.

    Damien Molony

    Aged 29 - Recently played Hal Yorke in Being Human




    Sean Evans

    Aged 33 - Recently played Endeavour Morse in Endeavour




    Colin Morgan

    Aged 27 - Recently played Merlin in Merlin... but... was also in S4 episode Midnight. Mind you that didn't stop Colin Baker.




    Oh.. and my daughter says she wants John Bishop.

    I would like see someone who plays the completely different to the past three doctors at least more seriously. And look differently to tennent and smith who at least to me look alike.

    I love to Hugh Laurie take on the role. If he not to big for the role.

    I don't think that terrorist/traitor in homeland would be good at the role.

    There a couple of actor in misfit that would be good such as the one that play the character that can spit into two or the one who could turn invicible .

    I've been racking my brain trying to think who could play him, would a female doctor work? idk about that either if not a women than Rupert Grint, maybe? the doctor would finally be ginger idk if he'd be willing to do television

    What about Patrick Stewart? i think he would make an awesome doctor, i've heard rumours that awhile ago they tried to get him into doctor who for an unspecified role (it might have been around the time smith was cast as the doctor i can't remember) so maybe this time they'll get him?

    I've heard Benedict Cumberbatch suggested for the role, after seeing into darkness i like the idea, but it would probably mean no more sherlock (which i don't watch yet but planning to)

    Tom Hiddleston - I thought he was great as Loki, but i just dunno if he will fit as doctor who

    I would like the darker element to return to doctor who, matt smith has dabbled with a bit of darkness, but not as much as christopher eccleston or david tennent,

    The actor definitely needs to be British and male. I'm sorry ladies. There are most definitely lots of amazing British female actors out there but I just think the Doctor needs to stay male. Age? Well, maybe someone a bit older than Matt.

    Going through names on IMDb I came across these people I thought looked quite "Doctor-ish":

    Hugh Laurie (age 53)
    Paddy Considine (age 39)
    Michael Sheen (age 45)
    Mackenzie Crook (age 33)
    James Frain (age 45)
    Jack Davenport (age 40)
    Andrew Lee-Potts (age 34)

    The one who could split in two was Joseph Gilgun (29)



    and the one who could turn invisible was Iwan Rheon (28)




    All good ideas everyone.

    Please no, they may as well rename it Doctor Sherlock if that happens.

    Don't forget Robert Carlisle was in the running for the role before Matt Smith got it, if they can pry him away from ABC he would probably make a good Dr.

    I just want someone older, just so it blows my theory the Doctor ages in reverse, it doesn't seem right someone who is supposed to be 900 years old looking younger than the rest of the cast.

    Since I'm Robert Carlisle allergic, I hope not.

    I also agree that I hope the Doctor stays a man. Any ethnicity or age is fine really. I would have to trust the writers before being on board for a sex/gender switch, and right now, I don't trust them.

    I used to suffer from the same allergy, but his acting in SGU & OUAT has warmed me to him.

    Some great ideas so far! Personally I hope they make the next Doctor a bit older, and I wondered about a couple of possibilities: Stephen Mangan (40) or Richard Ayoade (35)?

    Patrick Stewart is always going to be Captain Picard no matter how hard he may try to escape it, so he's out.

    Benedict Cumberbatch is too big for this role now. It's a miracle he's still doing Sherlock.

    I would love a Robert Carlyle Doctor but I doubt if he has room in his schedule. (Unless they continue doing six episodes a year and Once cuts back to 13?)

    Of the suggestions posted here, I like Damien Molony - but I haven't seen him in action.

    And I don't want to see a female doctor either. It would just be too weird and jarring, and there wouldn't be enough episodes to get used to it so it would stay jarring and weird.

    Looking at the pic of Sean Evans, he looks to similar to Tennant for me...
    Colin Morgan is a good shout as he was excellent in Merlin and currently available

    I sorta want somebody a little older than Matt Smith. I'm a fan of Jack Davenport. Seeing him as the Doctor would be fun. (And that voice.) Maybe not Benedict Cumberbatch, I'm still hoping for a cross-over with Sherlock.

    My inner Merlin fangirl wants Eoin Macken as a companion. That would be more fun with Colin Morgan. (The adventures of Merlin and Gwaine through time and space.)

    Rule #1: The Doctor must always be male. Might have two heads, might have no head, but must always be male.
    I'm seeing some lovely suggestions here! I've never seen Damien Molony before, but he looks like he could be good. Andrew Lee-Potts of course is always fantastic. I'd never thought of Colin Morgan, but he is a good actor.
    My first choice would be Anthony Head. It would be nice to have a more mature Doctor for a while. He's supposed to be a wise, all-knowing immortal, and it can be difficult to respect someone who doesn't even look old enough for a college degree. If not him, then Bradley James. Anthony Head was Giles (not a Buffy fan, but that does not negate his awesomeness), and Bradley James was Arthur Pendragon on Merlin.

    I'm hoping that it's someone who is prepared to stay a little longer, which might mean someone slightly later in their career who has less impetus to keep bouncing on to new projects...
