Day 29 - Doctor Who Challenge

Who I Think Could Be a Good Doctor (in the Future)

I seem to have more candidates for this one.  The problem is that the Doctor has always been getting younger.  With the extreme youth of Matt Smith have we reached the end if this trend?  I'm not going to rule out people who are older than the last few actors to have played the role.  Even though casting someone much older straight after Smith would feel weird.

My list of candidates would read:  James McAvoy, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rufus Sewell, Paul Bettany, Ian Hart, Paterson Joseph, Damian Lewis, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch.  Cumberbatch would be perfect but I think he's already been cast too close to the role.  As well as not wanting the role.  I'll just enjoy his Sherlock instead.

I think my next choice would be the one that's been most speculated about, Paterson Joseph.  I like his slightly offbeat screen presence.  He was the best thing in the (unnecesssary) Survivors remake.  All serious stuff.  I loved him in Jekyll, slightly off from the norm.  His appearances were the highlight of Neverwhere for me, wacky.  He can do the spectrum and let's face it he's not exactly hard to look at.  I'm loving Matt Smith but can we have Paterson next please?

Hahaha! Guess who I've picked for this one and guess which clip I've got? :D

I said at the time of transmission that he would be perfect and my opinion hasn't changed. Excellent choice!
