Thread: [TV] Doctor Who

  1. #10341
    Thing is if you have seen the classic show you wouldve appreciated Capaldi alot more imo but seeing how not many people have seen much of the classic show and the only doctor they are familar with is some youthful energetic guy i can see why some people didnt take to him.

    I aint kidding when i put Capaldi in my top 5 doctors of all time that how much i liked his performance but its just like i said let down by shitty writing that was what killed Colin Bakers doctor.

    Though i doubt Capaldi is leaving because of popular demand i think he is leaving cause he is getting more offers for work that he has to turn down because of Doctor Who.

    PoC AND female. This wont work well

    I dont think it will be a female doctor.

    they'll probably go for a young doctor again like matt and david.

    I could see him not being white though.

    as for the lists i wouldnt put any stock into them unless all of a sudden theres an actual leak and everybody puts someone who wasnt even being talked about up at the top like the last couple times.

    remember when last time all of a sudden a couple weeks before the announcement everybody just randomly put capaldi at the top of their list?

    Apparently this is a list of the bookies favourites to replace Capaldi... Word of warning, they could NOT have been more wrong last time and only had a spike in Capaldi's odds on the day he was announced.

    That said, Here are 13 early favourites: http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/13-earl...ctor-83020.htm

    For me, the only notable names are

    Richard Ayoade. A great pick and he'd probably direct a few episodes as well, which could be fun... However, as he's just started hosting Crystal Maze I can't see him taking on another big project like this.

    Olivia Coleman. LEGENDARY actor and has worked with Chris before, so he knows how good she is... Honestly, while I'm against them fucking with the role too much, I've been saying for years now that IF we had to have a female Doctor, I'd want it to be her.

    Russel Tovey. I've wanted him to be the Doctor since Tennant left... If rumours are to be trusted, when they were casting Smith it was down to Tovey and Smith, with Smith just edging him out at the finishing post, so it could be a good chance for him.

    Jason Flemyng. I hadn't even thought of him, then he popped up on this list and now I'm all for it. He'd be a good balance between Tennant/Smith's bounciness and Capaldi's gruffness.

    My absolute NOs.

    Andrew Scott. I don't know why, but he really annoys me. I loved him first turn as Moriarty, but since then he's gotten progressively worse and now I can't stand him.

    Ben Whishaw. Is it just me of does he have THE WORLD'S MOST PUNCHABLE FACE...

    I really like Capaldi. I definitely liked him better than Matt Smith, but maybe I was just let down by Smith's goofiness after Tennant's emo-ness. Personally, Eccleston and Capaldi have been the best doctors for me. I feel like the Tennant Doctor was, narratively, pushed to that regeneration because of his feelings for Rose (as Eccleston), and I think that kind of goes beyond the pale of what the Doctor, as a character, is supposed to be.

    If they were going to go with a non-white actor, I think Ayoade is #1 in my books hands down. If they have to go with female, which I agree would be a mistake and also a forced decision to be PC in the Trump world, Olivia is not remotely who I would pick. Her comedic roles have all fit with the show she was on and her serious roles were amazing, but I don't see her capable of marrying them together with the eccentricity required to be the Doctor. Would hate it. Some of the others on the list would work well to have either a classic Doctor (which we sorta saw in Capaldi and didn't work for the masses) or a Tennant/Smith revival:

    Classic:
    Rory Kinnear, would work fine but would probably not inject any enthusiasm in the role to the masses.
    Ben Daniels, same really.

    Smith/Tennant:

    Tovey - Always a favorite. His performance in Being Human alone would sell me on him being the Doctor.
    Jason Flemyng - could actually bridge between a Capaldi like and Tennant like. I would be interested to see this, but it would never happen.
    Andrew Scott - No. Too much Moriarty in his blood and face at this point. I don't think he would make a likable Doctor at all.
    Rupert Grint - Would actually be fantastic, but not from his Potter days. His other small roles have been interesting. Admittedly, when he starts it would take him a season to get down the nuance needed to be great...but I think he could do it. Plus we'd get to see the Doctor freak out about finally being Ginger.

    Really, really don't like Ben Wishaw at all but I can see them thinking 'he looks like a Doctor, let's do it'.

    I totally agree, having seen him in some other things, I think he would make a FANTASTIC Doctor... However, much like Ayoade, he's just signed up to be in something else (He plays the lead in the TV series of Snatch, which has a fair amount of potential), so I can't see him taking on a role as full on as the Doctor. Which is actually a real shame, maybe after this Doctor leaves, he can jump in then.

    Hugh Laurie or Tom Hardy would be my ideal Doctor or just bring back Tennant.

    He is weird, Gay and Ginger.... HE WOULD BE PERFECT!! Also he is a tremendous actor and imo the best actor in the Sherlock series.

    And even though he has appeared in the show before we all know previous appearances dont affect your chances of being the doctor. Just ask Colin Baker and Peter Capaldi!

    I feel like iZombie will be canceled soon enough. I like the show, just don't know that it has the numbers. But then again, it is a CW show, they're not as reliant on numbers as big as the networks.

    God no. He's responsible for the hammiest dialogue, the panto feeling that inhabited many "horror" episodes. He has done the show a lot of good but PLEASE don't let him back in to do to it what he did to the Sherlock concept.

    Given his waning performance on Blunt Talk, I would not. Ian McKellen on the otherhand...

    I always thought it would be cool if they took a break between a regeneration and did a prequel series with Paul McGann (the eighth Doctor) showcasing some of his adventures between the doctor who movie and his death in the war doctor story. He's one of my favourite doctors and I loved the doctor who animated mini series he was in from 2003.
