    Sam Troughton? *googles*

    He was Much in the BBC's Robin Hood! I think he'd make quite a good Doctor actually, it'd be interesting to see him not being the sidekick.
    He's really good! Is he Patrick Troughton's grandson or something?

    I would enjoy having a black or a female (or both) Doctor, just for the ****storm of criticism it would bring on from the Mail, etc. :rolleyes:

    What if zoe ball is the next doctor. I dont mind who the next doctor is as long as they make better scripts. Even though matt smith is a good actor I found all his episodes too childish.
    That would be a Moffat-style thing to do but I doubt it!

    I think that was the point of Matt Smith's Doctor - he was meant to have quite a childish personality and that was how Matt Smith played him. It was an interesting change particularly as how David Tennant got quite dark towards the end of his era. Although I do think that if they wanted to have a more childish doctor Matt Smith was the right choice - he has that sort of look to him and his age helps (i.e. an older actor being childish would have been a bit to Mr Bean).

    Wikipedia says he is.

    Would quite like to see a black Doctor actually, would make a nice change, not so sure about a female Doctor though, but we'll see.

    I highly doubt it will be an "unknown" actor the way matt smith or david tennant were. They will be getting someone who is a bit more well known to audiences to boost ratings (since they have been very low as of late). That's why they're making a big deal out of it and having this live reveal show.

    I'm certainly hoping it's Capaldi, or at least someone who is a fair bit older than matt smith.

    If it's an "unknown" then i will be very disappointed.

    Me neither, really hoping it's Capaldi though, watching him in The Thick of It is like watching a work of art

    I thought about just watching the final 5 minutes because I anticipated the rest of it being build up with talking heads, but I too helped Deadly 60
