    Definitely NOT Benedict Cumberbatch or whatever his name is. I'd switch off.

    Brian Blessed would 100% end the show for me. I would never watch it again if he was in it.
    It'd be rather amusing I'd reckon. Perhaps better as a comic relief sort of thing like Atkinson and Lumley a few years back than a proper doctor though.

    David Tennant already played the Doctor...

    /notsureifserious
    I am sure they could find a way to do it - however as much as I liked Tennant (he is my favourite doctor), I am not sure I would be happy if they did do it.

    Why do so many keep saying they want Tennant to come back? It's not going to happen, no idea why people want him as the next doctor.

    Anyway - Brian Blessed or Neil Flynn please.
    Presumably because they actually want him to come back! I'd like to go on a date with Orlando Bloom. The chances of it are minimal, but that's not going to stop me wanting it to happen.

    He and Bill Bailey are the only two 'older' actors I'd like to see in the role.

    I don't see the attraction personally, but really it's not much different to "men" and Karen/Jenna. Without generalising, of course. :cool:

    They could do a whole series of the human Doctor and Rose. Or a spin off. That would be really good.

    No-one apart from me fancies clara oswald. It's a shame she has a B.F. If she was somehow single, i could plot a way to her.

    There was something on FB earlier about a possible leak to a Sunday newspaper of the identity of the 12th Doctor, which may force the BBC into revealing who it is earlier than planned. It's also possible (according to the same source) that a 12th Doctor photo shoot has already taken place. Not sure how much truth there is in that though.

    No, David Mitchell of Mitchell and Webb/Peep Show, did the voice for one of the robots in Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.

    I can see the attraction. If I were that way inclined, she'd be at the top of my list. Alongside Keira Knightley.

    For the next doctor... Ben Whishaw or Damien Molony.

    I see a disturbing amount of Moffat-hatred in this thread, as I flicked through it. I will now make all of you hate me by saying that 5 and 6 were by far the best series of the new series (though I don't know what he was doing in the 2nd half of 7. Apart from the finale, it was just bad, bad television). Davies wasn't complex enough and his own writing was lacklustre. He wasn't a bad showrunner, but Moffat was better (until series 7, at least).
