No time like the present

Lets start with the cliches

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

All the rumours point to Ben Daniels.

Don't know him, like the fact he's older though.

My choice would be Robbie Coltrane. Even though he's the same age now that William Hartnell was in The Three Doctors

Probably Ben Daniels most high-profile role has been "Law and Order UK", it's what I know him from, although he's been in lots of stuff.

I'm still not convinced though...

All his scenes in Lark Rise To Candleford



From this, it looks like he hasn't quite got what New Who looks for in its lead actors. So I'm surprised by this casting. Perhaps if he studies the benchmark setting performances below he might come up to scratch

His current twitter following is 2,686. I've a funny feeling he may add one or two more followers in the next 24 hours

I'm just breathing a sigh of relief it's not Stephen Mangan

Whoever he is (assuming it's a he) I hope he's not in his twenties or me and Stevie Moffat are through.

I didn't watch the videos, but although I like Ben Daniels as "James Steel" in "Law and Order UK" he plays the part very straightlaced and humourlessly and doesn't really seem to have the quirky edge that I feel the Doctor needs. Some people on this forum may find that a good thing, but I like my quirky Doctors!!!

I do hope not. I'd rather it be Daniels - he just looks like more of the same.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I heard he was going to regenerate into a Dalek. I mean fair's fair, it's positive discrimination really.

I will stop watching if he regenerates into a woman, although I don't think even SM is that stupid.

Paul Daniels, Ken Dodd, Eddie Izzard or Alan Davies are bound to be suggested surely?

Alan Davies could actually do a stellar job I reckon, but I can't see him being cast.

I think he'd be OK (I've suggested him before, but a lot of people don't seem to like the idea).
My son suggested Stephen Fry...
