“They are also offering odds on Sherlock star Martin Freeman, on Skyfall’s Ben Whishaw and on former assistant Billie Piper returning to the series as the Doctor’s new incarnation.”
Okay I could see Colin Morgan, Russel Tovey, or David Morrissey, because Doctor Who has cast people who have had minor roles before. Freema Agyeman played her own cousin, Karen Gillan was one of the soothsayers in the Fires of Pompeii, etc. But Billie Piper is ROSE. She’s one of the most popular characters on the show. A huge part of the fandom loves her, and a huge part hates her as well, but everyone knows her. Just…what?
Of all the actors listed, I’d vote either Idris Elba, Helen Mirren, or Richard Ayoade.
If I were going strictly on comedic value and just something I’d love to see but couldn’t take seriously: Ayoade as the Doctor, Russell Brand and Noel Fielding as his companions.
But, knowing DW’s writers, it’s going to be someone no one has even thought of.
John: YOU'RE LATE.
Sherlock: You punched me!
John: Three years.
Sherlock: You punched me right in the face!
John: Three years!
Sherlock: Look, I'm bleeding!
John: Three years and FOUR PSYCHIATRISTS!
John: ...I kept biting them.
John: They said you were a fraud.
