Who's Next?


   If I had to pick a new Doctor from the current crop of up and coming British actors, I think I'd go with Aidan Turner (who's Irish, by the way. He was great as Dante Gabriel Rossetti and he's shown he can play serious, comedic, and action in Being Human and The Hobbit.

Aidan Turner would be a great choice, but I wonder if he'd be too busy with all the Hobbit promotion duties to play the Doctor. He'd definitely get my vote if he was up for the role, though.

BTW he's Irish, not British :-)

Ah! Thanks for the clarification. Didn't realize he was Irish.

I still want David Tennant back.

He could be like James Bond, have a round robin of UK representation. ;) The Doctor's already been played by Englishmen and a Scot, so we get an Irish Doctor next and then a Welsh one ;)

Jim, you know I'd welcome Tennant back, but I doubt they (or he) would go that route.

Works for me, Paul.
