I wonder how long it’ll take before I get yelled at for that suggestion.

BTW, you’ll want to get rid of a spammer in the London’s Burning post asap.

I would love to see Lenny Henry as the Doctor.

I like how Lurker basically laid out the background for Rucka’s Tara Chace from Queen & Country in explaining why a woman couldn’t be James Bond…

So if all Time Lords have 12 regenerations and most of them lead dull, non-interfering lives free of massive physical trauma and/or deadly radiation bursts etc., does that mean most of them are 6,000 years old?

I have no doubt that at some point they will handwave their way around the regeneration limit (assuming they didn’t already with the “infusion of River Song’s regeneration energy” thing)

Part of me echoes Neil Gaiman’s recent comments and would like to see an unknown wow us all again.

That said, if I had to pick someone known…jeez, it would be crazy awesome if it was Hugh Laurie, Paterson Joseph, or Dev Patel. That’s my big three in term of picks.

I’m going to go with Sophia Myles as my pick, personally.

Anyway.

seems to me there should be some limit on what regeneration can do.

Well, sure, it shouldn’t be able to make the Doctor into a billion Doctors, or turn him into a galaxy. But it’s already established that it can change a Time Lord’s gender.

Joanna Lumley has, too, actually (and she made quite a good one, too):

Not to mention Rowan Atkinson taking the first half of the gig and totally running with it, as well as playing off of Jonathan Pryce as the Master…
