William Hill are backing Ben Whishaw, which I wouldn't have a problem with actually.
(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.

Yeah according to one article I read, it made the point that almost every Doctor who's been hired to fill role since revival back in 2005 has formerly worked with Showrunner in some capacity. Christopher Eccelston in The Second Coming, David Tennant in Casanova, Peter Capaldi in Torchwood (?). So on that basis alone they then feel if we want to know just who next Doctor will be, we should look to one of actors who have appeared on Broadchurch. People such as Joe Sims, Jonathan Bailey, Jacob Anderson, Andrew Buchan, Peter De Jersey, William Andrews or Marcus Garvey. Personally speaking I think James D'arcy could work ... :D

Oh God I'd forgotten "Broadchurch".

So maybe there's not much nope for the next round of New Who after all.

Chibnall also produced on Law and Order UK which would have a massive pool of actors to pick from

Hmmm....BBC execs will be looking at the ratings for Death in Paradise and thinking if they could get the audience to follow him to Dr Who.....

From BBC Wales Press on latest rumour regarding production moving to Manchester:

I think that's rather a shame...assuming it it true.

Apparently mark gattis has also suggested it could be a woman this time, this as well as Billie Piper saying not casting a woman now would be a snub. I hate the idea.

Rory Kinnear would be outstanding. His portrayal of Caliban (Frankensteins Monster) in penny dreadful is amazing, the soft careing humanity and true gentle soul coupled with bouts of raw emotion and power. Amazing actor to carry off the extremes so well as he does in that role.

Yeah, I think the idea of a Female Doctor didn't go down well on here. 8-)
The Doctor died with Capaldi. The Chibnall era is non-canon.

There are no Doctors before William Hartnell.

Without respect, we reject.

And why do I think Piper thinks that SHE should be playing the Doctor?

Then Jenna Coleman could play him too.

Simply topping eh wot??

I mentioned her for the part a while back. She'd be great, I reckon.

An utterly awful idea. As indeed is any female Doctor. Hopefully this is just media hysteria, though you never know.

Also had a horrible realisation, as the kind of people I'd want to play the Doctor would probably be considered "much too old" as of now.

My view - the Doctor is MALE - get over it!

Anyway, the female companions seem to have a great time, although they seem best and strongest characters on the Big Finish audio's I've heard.

Maybe the TV Doctor should meet up again with Iris Wildthyme (a highly naughty older character played by our beloved Katy Manning)... And while I'm at it and for canon's sake, why couldn't Missy have been the Rani? I'm sure it would have worked the same, maybe even better!

If Missy wasn't the Master, what would be notable about her? Nothing. It's only the fact that it created such controversy that makes anyone even take notice.

If you can' have a well-written character, then make the character noteworthy for some other reason.

The wild hoops DR STRANGE had to jump through to justify Swinton's existence was a distraction and more than a bit immoral and racist.
