My top 10 Choices for the next Doctor
- spewed into cyberspace on Tuesday Jun 04 13 @ 12:31 PM
Matt Smith’s departure as the Doctor shocked Whovian geeks everywhere this week. But, it’s all good, he had quite a long run, and it’s the unfortunate history of the last remaining Time Lord to reincarnate in a new skin every once in a while.
And because this is my blog, I have decided to pick my top 10 replacements for the Doctor. Yes I know… all the nerds are probably going to be raging at me for this list. Some of them are not British, or even feasible possibilities. But bros… these are just the crazy fantasies I have twirling around in my head. Sometimes people have weird thoughts. Don’t judge me, this is my fantasy world, okay!?
1. Sir Ian McKellen
We all know he’s a great actor with great methods. He can pull off classic geek roles like Gandalf the Grey, Magneto, and – just think – now he could be the 12th Doctor. In my fantasy world of course. YOU SHALL NOT BLINK!
2. Jim Parsons
Ah, Dr. Sheldon Cooper. He would somehow have to break out of that Sheldon character stereotype he is so well known for… but I could see his cute face adorning the inside of the TARDIS… absolutely! He would fill the Doctor’s Converses quite nicely.
3. Jon Stewart
Something seriously tells me this could work! He’s cute, smart, and Jewish! (Wait, what does that have to do with anything?) I feel like he’d be amazing at talking himself out of problems. He could be just what Whovians (or me) are looking for.
4. Nathan Fillion
An obvious choice. We already know he can pilot a spaceship, as seen when he was the amazing Captain Malcolm Reynolds of Firefly. We also know he can be a funny guy, a bad ass, and just so darn cute!
5. Matthew Lewis
This dream boat is not only British but has worked with David Tennant before, and we know the long running history of Harry Potter actors in episodes of Doctor Who. I can see it now… He pulls out the Sonic Screwdriver, gives his cute little Neville-y come-hither stare, and off we go into time and space!
6. Sir Patrick Stewart
He too has experience with piloting a space craft as we saw in Star Trek… plus a bald Doctor could have a certain… je ne sais quoi. Plus, look at him: Pizza and wine! Dude knows how to have a good time. But we already knew that.
7. Sarah Silverman
I better not be the only person on the “The next Doctor better be a chick” train. And I feel like her silly humor and quirky adorableness could be a completely bizarre, yet fitting rendition of the Doctor.
8. Seth Rogan
I don’t know, maybe it’s the beard, or just the sweetness about him, but I think Seth could totally rock the Doctor. I would completely trust him to pilot me through time and space on awesome adventures!! He already has experience as 2 aliens, Paul and B.O.B. from Monsters and Aliens, which only further qualifies him in my mind.
9. Wil Weaton
A completely obvious choice. Look at him! Clever in his tweets, already a huge Whovian, and a geek icon that everyone could get behind, if he chose to adorn the TARDIS with his presence. And I also think Felicia Day could totally pull off his companion. Just saying.
10. Richard Madden
*Spoiler Alert* He dead. I mean… he’s dead on Game of Thrones, so he’s now free to take his sweet British stylings to the farthest reaches of the universe! I’m not trying to be insensitive about the Red Wedding but… come on, He could be a Time Lord! Time Travel is Coming. Too soon?
