You are all probably aware that Matt Smith is leaving the BBC sci-fi dramedy Doctor Who. His final appearance will be the Christmas Special. However he will be making an appearance sometime this fall in the Fiftieth Anniversary Special before then.
If you don’t follow the show I highly recommend it. I have been a fan of the eleventh doctor. I rate him over the ninth played by Christopher Eccleston who returned as The Doctor when it returned to television in 2005 after a eleven year hiatus. I rate the Scottish actor David Tennant who played the tenth as my favourite in the revival series. No one beats the fourth Tom Baker. Baker’s version I believe is the most iconic character in 1970’s British television. There is a lot of speculation and discussion on who is to replace Smith. I want to be a collaborator.
Please note the following people are in no particular order.
Who Should Replace Matt Smith as The Doctor?
If you watched the Series 7 finale Name of The Doctor, you probably spotted this man towards the end. We are not entirely sure which number he’s suppose to do. A lot of speculation on the inter-webs is he’s a re-imagining of a previous doctor and not the twelfth. I have seen John Hurt in a lot of other things and he’s just so goddamn awesome.
I know, I know he’s an American. A lot of people will cause an uproar if an American be casted. But BBC America does cover a lot of the production costs. Hell. The series came to the United States for a few episodes in Series 6. Why the hell not?
He has his own fez and has a beard! #Winning!
I think he would do a pretty good job.
I know that she already has debuted in Doctor Who as the character River Song. Who is the daughter of the Doctor’s companions, Amy and Rory Pond. And she currently is just an apparition in the Series 7 finale. I believe she would be an excellent choice and I think it’d be awesome if The Doctor finally became a woman. We need a strong primary female protagonist.
I understand that she isn’t Gallifreyan but she does have the abilities to regenerate.
Fans of the British series Being Human will recognize her as the troubled ghost Annie Sawyer. I really think it would be amazing for the twelfth doctor to be a woman. Especially a young woman.
She also is an incredible actress!
Just make it fucking so!
