Who will be Who ?

So now that Matt Smith has decided to hand in his 'sonic screwdriver' who will they pick for the new regenerated Dr Who ?

Based upon the story lines over the past few years they will have to be young and / or physically fit.

Will they go with an establish, well known actor to the TV public or go, as they did with Matt Smith, for an virtual unknown to the general viewing public ?

Will they keep the same format i.e. a male actor ?

If they decided upon a woman I would suggest Joanna Lumley OK OK I know she's a pensioner now but she is still a fine actress. She also player the Doctor in a Red Nose Day sketch, very funny ! Or how about Helena Bonham Carter if Tim Burton does not need her for one of his films for a couple of years.

How about a black Dr Who ? I would suggest someone like Arinze Kene who has played in Casualty, EastEnders and Hollyoaks or Daniel Kaluuya who has already acted on Dr Who back in 2009 he also played Agent Tucker in Johnny English Reborn.

There is, what appears to be, on ongoing theme of the Doctor not wishing to regenerate with red hair ! So how about Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) ?

Dr Who with attitude ? Vinnie Jones :-)

An older actor would seem a bit odd. When the Doctor comes up for regeneration they don't normally trade him in for an older model!

That's true, most of us would opt for a younger and imature regeneration over an older and more mature regeneration.

I'm afraid I'm not that interested in who gets the part. My wife likes the programme, but I can't stand it.

"Tom Baker was the only one to take the role not quite seriously enough thereby making him the most credible Dr Who of all time."

Not a patch on William Hartnell, who was by no means in the first flush of youth when he got the part.

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Clint Eastwood aka Dirty Harry still around. I am sick of the namby pamby girlie lets not kill anything Dr Whos. I want someone with a machine gun in one hand and a beautiful girl in the other and a flask of booze in the hip pocket.

Rowan Atkinson would make a good Doctor ... as long as he [ Atkinson ] played him [ Who ] as a straight 'level-headed and 'boring' character who was not as silly as his previous incarnations, I reckon.

That would be a giggle.
