I'm clicking submit and naught is happening. Obviously somebody is conspiring against Noel Fielding.
Right, you lovely people: we've trawled through your suggestions as to who should step into Matt Smith's shoes as the 12th incarnation of Doctor Who, and it's time to put it to the public vote. It's a mixed bag, to be sure, with some top talent in there more than suited to pocketing the keys to the Tardis. So without further …
Yeah, Noel Fielding would be a travesty. He was funny in one series, and hasn't been funny since, oh and he can't act.
Benedict Cumberbatch would be the best quite obviously, but I feel the Doctor is slightly beneath him, so wouldn't actually like to see him get the role.
I'd like to see a relative unknown, like Smith was when he took the role.
If they did a 2 round voting system on this, I mean with the number of candidates there will be many who'll likely only get one or two votes, (normally from the guy who proposed them)
I'd say unless there's a clear winner, as per elections, a second ballot is held with only the top few candidates from the previous round. That or somebody at El Reg could program a new voting system so that people can select a second choice candidate.
So many good options in there.
Benedict Cumberbatch would be interesting but given his high profile Hollywood status now I can't seem him doing it.
I think Robert Carlyle would do a marvellous job. Patrick Stewart or Alexander Siddiq (I assume this is actually supposed to be Siddig with a G, Julian Bashir from DS9) would both do an interesting job, but I can't see them having the energy and edgy nature required to appeal to Dr Who's current audience.
Robert Carlyle as Dr Nicholas Rush certainly shows he can do edgy.
Ah yes, but then they'd have to give him a companion named Gordon at some point, just to shoe-horn the trademark line in as well...
And anyway, the TARDIS may be bigger on the inside than the outside, but I'm still not sure it's big enough for his persona and voice :)
The only interesting thing left is the Time War. (Maybe what happened to the doctor's daughter after she regenerated).
It really has gone down hill for me.
I get the impression they won't deal with the John Hurt thread to my satisfaction.
I don't think trying to add love like threads to Doctor Who makes it any better at all.
Seems they put a proper amount of effort in for Ecclestone but then didn't really bother.
