    I think Ben Whishaw could fit rather well. He has the look, accent and screen presence to pull it off. He's also a (slightly) less well known actor.

    Eddie Redmayne is also a good suggestion.

    Yeah I'd be happy with Ben Whishaw. I hope the beeb don't choose someone completely random just to be different...that's my fear.

    If it is Ben Whishaw I will melt every night. He is perfection.

    I would agree with lots of people and say that the next doctor should like the show, or have at the very least watched it. I loved Ecclestone as the Doctor but he hated working on the show and that takes some of the magic away from the audience.
    It's a similar thing to Harry Potter - apparently Daniel Radcliffe and rupert grint didn't get on at all and I think that's a real shame. (Went off at a tangent there, sorry...)

    Is that true about Harry Potter? D:
    I'm really sad about Eccleston; apparently the 50th was meant to be largely centred around him and the Time War, and the main reason John Hurt has got involved is cause he refused to take part (ALLEGEDLY, read on the interwebs). I wish it could have been Eccleston, he would have got a chance to shout 'Fantastic' a bit more at least

    I haven't seen Richard Madden's name mentioned yet as a suggestion for who will be the next Doctor...

    I loved his performance as Robb Stark in Game of Thrones, and his relationship with Jenna-Louise Coleman has seen him pop up on the DW set a few times. Considering he's in search of a job and Doctor Who's in search of a Doctor, I would giggle with joy if he played the next doctor.

    talking of Game of Thrones, what about Sean Bean? :awesome:

    would be appropriate cause he is English and at some point he will die/regenerate!

    Anyone of this list would be a fantasy come true:

    Stephen Fry
    Hugh Laurie
    Richard Ayoade

    Miranda Hart
    Benedict Cumberbatch
    Marc Warren (I think this one is actually a strong possibility, especially if they bring the whole valeyard doctor into play in the next incarnation - wouldn't Warren just be bloody amazing?)
    Sue Perkins

    And if they want to play the "FINALLY! I'M GINGER!" card:

    Rupert Grint.

    Rupert Grint would be incredible. It's never going to happen though.

    I can't think of a reason why not? :beard:

    I haven't seen Rupert be anyone besides Ron, so it'd interesting to see him become the Doctor.

    Rupert Grint never seems to act crazy enough to play the Doctor - he just seems too normal. Well, he is an actor, he might adjust well to the role if he were to audition/get it.

    I don't think Rupert Grint is a very good actor, personally... I wouldn't be happy if he got the role for that reason. Although it would be hilarious to have a ginger Doctor.

    I want Grint to do it, but dye his hair black for the role. Just to annoy everyone.
