CAST THIS: Doctor Who

Nov. 17, 2011by:

This week we learned that Harry Potter director David Yates would be adapting another popular British icon for the big screen, Doctor Who. The series has been a pop culture staple in the UK for decades, and a recent reboot of the show has been incredibly popular for the last five or so years.

Also with this announcement comes that the film will NOT be drawing from the TV show in terms of cast, meaning it's a total reboot and current Doctor Matt Smith will not have the part. So this begs the question, who will be the twelfth DOCTOR WHO?

One of the Doctor's powers is to change his appearance at will, and so recasting him isn't too much of a stretch. At least I thought that until I started hearing from fans that they were outraged that Matt Smith was out, and they don't want him to be anyone new. For a show that recasts its lead every few years, I didn't think this would be the end of the world, but public outrage seems to indicate otherwise.

But I do want to see if we can get an answer out of fans here. If you could NOT pick any of the old Doctors to play the part, which British actor would you like to see as the time traveling alien? As the Doctor can be any age, there's a huge range to choose from. Any Hollywood types suit your fancy? Let me know who you would pick, again who has NOT BEEN A DOCTOR already. But I bet most of you don't even read the text in these posts. Lobster. Foot Fungus. Naked Billie Piper. That one got your attention at least.

Last Time: JOHN MCCLANE JR.

It's been a little while since our last column, but back then we were wondering who might best play John McClane's son in the upcoming Die Hard movie. Your selections were as follows:

1. Aaron Paul (20%) 2. Jensen Ackles (18%) 3. Ben Foster (11%)

Gotta say, love Aaron Paul, and rumor has it, he's actually being considered for the part .He's fantastic in Breaking Bad, and he would steal the show here. Think he would work without his "thug" accent though, yo?

I don't get you guys and Jensen Ackles, I really don't. Like he's a good looking dude and Supernatural is OK, but he gets suggested for like literally every male role we try to cast in these columns, and I don't understand it.

Ben Foster is awesome when he's not being an X-Man, so I'm all for him.

Now, what about Doctor Who?

Extra Tidbit: I'm in season two of Doctor Who right now. Yes, yes, I know I need to get to "Blink."

His name is The Doctor, NOT Doctor Who!
Also, the ONLY person that should play The Doctor right now is Matt fucking Smith! And the only person that should write is Steven Moffat!

Nope.

I'm sorry, you just don't make a movie based off of a currently running show and recast damn title character. I don't care if Matt Smith doesn't want to make it right now, Hollywood, YOU WAIT FOR MATT FUCKING SMITH TO DO THE MOVIE WHEN HE WANTS. He is the perfect Doctor. And recasting the character would just be a slap in every fans face and especially a slap in the actors faces' of the current season.

Forget the continuity issues, actors, etc....I've been a Doctor Who fan for 20 years, and this idea would throw a monkey wrench into everything.

No Way Hollywood Execs! Find another defunct television series to cannibalize!

As long as they don't cast an American...

I think Benedict Cumberbatch could be the best overall choice.

I also like the suggestion of Cillian Murphy a lot.

If they were casting older, Hugh Laurie (but that's not going to happen).

Just to throw a few new names into the mix, Tom Hiddleston maybe? Or maybe Matthew Goode? Both deserve more exposure as actors, and I could see either one in the role.

Eurgh.

I hate this idea. I could perhaps get behind a genuine continuation of the TV series in a movie. If Matt's still around then stick with Matt, if he's moved on by then then obviously pick then next guy and continue with him onwards. But the idea of doing a separate and completely removed from continuity Doctor Who movie is a terrible terrible idea.

When casting new Doctors, before the incredible Matt Smith was cast (who I admittedly had reservations about when he was first picked) I really

When casting new Doctors, before the incredible Matt Smith was cast (who I admittedly had reservations about when he was first picked) I really wanted them to go back to an older Doctor and get someone like Bill Nighy in there, just to show it's not all about being young to be cool. But obviously they went with Matt who is both young and brilliant, and on the plus side I got a Bill Nighy cameo in Matt's first series...so I'm happy.

What was the question again?

IF this is to happen then they should keep it in the timeline and wait until Smith is done and have the movie take place between Smith and whoever will continue as the doctor on the show. To clarify, give Smith a very small part in the film where he regenerates and then whoever they get can play the doctor in the film. Then end the movie with another regeneration to the new lead of the show. This is the only way I think the film could have a chance at not destroying the masterpiece that is

Craig Ferguson
James McAvoy

The down side about that is, that would put the Doctor to face number 13, and he only has 13 regenerations. So this would be bringing the Doctor to his final curtain call.

First of all the Doctor cannot change at will, only upon dying and regenerate to a new body.

My wife and I are totally into the modern series of Doctor who and we often check out classic episodes. I'm not for a movie that feels the need to reboot the series. It's been pointed out that each new Doctor is somewhat of a reboot. That's a fair point, but each Doctor is respectful to the existing canon.

With that idea, I think Michael Sheen, Bill Nighy, or Benedict Cumberbach would be pretty good choices.

Also hate the idea of David Yates being involved.

First, the Doctor can not change his appearance at will. He regenerates his body when he's near death. That is why he's around 1000 years old.
Second, the only way to do a Doctor Who movie right is to stick with the timeline and show the Doctor in his younger years, he wasn't born as William Hartnell, and stick with British actors.
James McAvoy for a young Doctor or Gary Oldman for an older one.

Fish fingers and custard!

Your first point is debatable, as the Master changed his appearance because he didn't like his look. (you could say though that it was because his body was old and weak though)

Also, Hartnell has always been considered to be the first doctor, if he wasn't then Matt Smith wouldn't be the 11th (Which he clearly is, what with all of the references)

@RC

Spiderman meant that he didn't come out the womb looking like William Hartnell, he lived an entire life before becoming the old man played by William Hartnell. They could cast a younger actor as the first doctor in his younger years.

NO no no no NO!

This is such a bad idea. It's so bad in fact that they'll prob have a CGI Doctor with facial aspects of all the previous ones to make his face and it'll be in 3-fucking-D!!! Have we learned nothing from the Paul McGann movie?

Matt Smith is the Doctor & he needs to play him on the big screen if it's gonna happen. It could be his last outing as The Doctor or something like that.

I'm not into this at all but I have to say I like the Alan Rickman picks.

Rant over!

Since the Doctor could be either older or younger I'm guessing they probably want to go with a younger actor to attract a young audience..Someone I think who would actually do a decent job would be Hugh Dancy he's able to be both funny and light-hearted and serious when needs be as the Doctor usually is.
Hopefully this will be better than the awful american made for Tv movie Doctor Who back in 96'

Nobody's gonna read this probably but....

A friend and I were talkign one day and considered who would be of age if it came around to the 13th doctor because since Hartnell the doctor seems to age backwards.

The past two Doctor's have both talked about wanting to be ginger and we thought Rupert Grint. British, oddball and obscure yet slightly famous once his Potter fame wears off. Think he'd do a great job and also been directed by David yates in the past so not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

ANYWAYS.

This is absurd. Not only will it fuck up the continuity we all love, but it's patently unnecessary. The Doctor is an icon, not only in England but, increasingly, in the US as well. Much like Spielberg's 'Tintin,' this film will dominate foreign markets to the point where it doesn't matter how it does here (and it will do just fine here). Yet, for some reason, Hollywood seems to feel the need to "glitz" it up for American audiences, with a recognizable director and, I'm willing to bet, some big

For my money, either stick with Matt Smith or, if you want to make a shit-ton of money, make a film that falls farther back in the timeline and which stars David Tennant. But the hell with David Yates and the yet-undetermined actor.

(oh, and if you absolutely must re-cast, then obviously Benedict Cumberbatch should get the part)

I'm pretty opposed to this, it will only be good if it's a continuation of the current TV series.

So I'm going to take this as a "Who would you like to play the 12th Doctor" question...

And in that case; Benedict Cumberbatch.

The idea of making an American audience friendly Doctor Who movie makes me throw up a little in my mouth every time I think about it, but if they insist on recasting it, I vote for Hugh Laurie.
1) He's British
2) He already has doctor credentials.
3) He looks like he could be The Doctor.

Although I can't really place these in a 123 position in my mind I'd love to see Rickman given the opportunity, Pegg would make an awesome eccentric/comical doctor like Tom Baker and Firth is an awesome actor and could bring a deadly seriousness to the role if it takes the full "dark" path.

look, i absolutely hate the idea of recasting Matt Smith, but the point of these articles is to be hypothetical.

In that case my number one pick (one that i'm shocked no one else has said) is Simon Pegg. He'd be perfect and the last time he regenerated the Doctor wished he was a ginger. I mean, c'mon think about it. He's a big name and he could easily nail the part (even though he played a villian in the first season of the reboot)

Terrible Idea

Doctor Who is all about creating continuity and making it so that things you've seen in prior episodes (even prior seasons) matter. A movie outside that continuity is one of the dumbest things I've heard of in a long time. Please keep Hollywood's hands off of this!

That being said, if they are going for a big name star for The Doctor, they could do worse than Hugh Grant. I know it sounds insane. But he was up for the part previously, and he even played an incarnation of The Doctor on one

One of the things I love about Doctor Who is how when the doctor changes so does the wardrobe so I'm thinking Daniel Radcliffe in a zip up hoodie and jeans.

SHUT UP BABIES

Come on everyone, stop bitching. This column is "cast this", not "complain about something you already voiced in the actual Dr. Who announcement thread".

top 5

because i love doctor who and have no worry in a new time line i want to see this movie, i have 5 top choices for varying ages of doctor
1. Anton Yelchin
2. Augustus Prew
3. Steve Coogan
4. Johnny Depp
5. Dustin Hoffman
either of these i would be fine with but Anton Yelchin is my top choice as he is still relatively unknown, has the look, and has proven it with chrlie bartlett to me

I love Doctor Who. Part of me doesn't want a US movie, but if I had to cast The Doctor, here are my choices:
Johnny Depp
Steve Coogan
Kristen Bell
