Martin Freeman could make a good Doctor, although I suspect a Hollywood career probably beckons after 'The Hobbit' and his stint in 'Sherlock'. :D

I think Simon pegg would be an interesting choice too.

The Doctor has stated (I think) before now that he'd like to be ginger. How about Frankie Boyle playing the part? :lol:

He was in it during the Tennant era. The one where they were stuck on (for want of a better description) a tube train, and Lesley Sharp kept parroting what The Doctor was saying.

True but Karen Gillan was in it before she became Amelia pond

Feegled from the Telegraph:

Now that Matt Smith has announced his retirement as Doctor Who, it's high time that Hugh Laurie assumed the role he was born to play. Here's why:

1. He's already played the most alarmingly eccentric doctor in TV history.

2. He's the right age. The Doctors have been getting younger faster than policemen; I want one who's older than me, dammit.

3. He could borrow some of House's more interesting attributes – eg, the addiction to Vicodin, which would make for more amusing storylines than Tom Baker's jelly babies.

4. We have an Old Etonian Prime Minister, Mayor of London and Archbishop of Canterbury, so why not an OE Doctor Who?

5. It would really really annoy Stephen Fry.


:mrgreen: :clap:
