The announcement of who will be the 12th doctor will be tomorrow who do you think it will be.

Personally I'd like to see Ewan McGregor or Sean Connery

    They're too high profile of actors, every Doctor ever has been a relative unknown at the beginning of their careers. It's why everyone was so shocked when John Hurt showed up in the series finale last year.

    I still think that Hurt is not necessarily the 12th Doctor, remember we've had false doctors and/or somewhere in the timeline but not explained Doctors before.

    Hoping for Helen Mirren or more realistically, Idris Elba, but they're probably both too high profile. Rumors are saying Peter Capaldi, but I'm hoping it won't be another white dude.

    John Hurt is the 9th Doctor.

    That's because it's me. That's right. I'm the Twelfth Doctor.

    This. I'd love to see a black doctor.

    I doubt it, that and The Doctor becoming a woman, it would confuse new fans
    But whoever it is we'll find out in about an hour

    Capaldi. Meh. Really wanted someone different.
  • Creeperbane2Creeperbane2 Victorian Scoundrel Indianapolis, IN Icrontian
    Peter Capaldi!
  • BasilBasil Nubcaek England Icrontian
    Awesome, Capaldi is a great actor and hopefully will bring far less zany bullshit than Smith.

    Cool as Elba would have been, he and the other diversity hire options would have been daft even for Dr Who.

    I really hope they work out a backstory for this.

    I'm gonna be over here, continuing to wave the Tennant flag.

    Tennant is my favorite doctor in the new series so far... I don't share the hate-on for Matt Smith though. I thought he was a pretty good doctor.

    So what will happen after the end of the 13th Doctor? Will they change the rules?

    I never really liked Matt Smith, at least not compared to Tennant he definitely grew on me but the 'insane doctor' schtick always irked me.

    Also we've got another Scot this is going to be brilliant.

    This article says that they are just going to quietly ditch that part of the mythos. I think it'd be cool if they have to run around freaking out trying to fix it instead, though.

    If they wanted to continue with the limited number, The Master was provided with a new set of regenerations, and River gave The Doctor hers - she had used at least her first regeneration, so there could be as many as eleven more there.

    I don't think they really have to. The Doctor's reincarnation is just into a random body, not taking the place of a specific person, so it could be completely coincidence that he reincarnates into a body that looks exactly like someone he had met in his past travels.
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Well they did say that Pompeii is where The Doctor died but it doesn't necessarily mean Matt Smith.

    Any number of future Doctors could potentially be the one who died there.

    I don't know if they have to ditch that part of the mythos, there seem to be canon alternatives to keep The Doctor running.

    No, I liked him a lot, but I definitely preferred Tennant and Eccleston.
