Who would you like to see in the show? What sort of character would you like to see them play?

I'd personally love to see Martin Freeman in the show. Maybe if Touched By An Angel was made into an episode he could play Mark Whittaker.

Tom Baker , Peter Davison, Colin Baker , Sylvester Mcoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston , David Tennant.

Broadcast it on the anniversary weekend of JFK's assassination later this year. As people will be getting bored of the rolling news coverage of the memorial ceremony and fancy a bit of escapism.

I hope to goodness nothing else in the world reaches a 50 year anniversary that weekend. As we'd probably have no new Doctor Who to watch

Benedict Cumberbatch

Martin Freeman

Eddie Izzard

Julian Rhind-Tutt

and, of course, as always, Ben Miller.

There are probably a few females as well, but I can't think of any offhand.

I'd quite like Ruth Wilson to play a bad guy. I feel like we haven't had a really good female villain for a while. I know there's Kovarian but I don't think she's really done much yet, besides kidnapping river. She just works for The Silence and really hates the doctor, we don't actually know that much about her. There might not be that much to know.

I think Ruth could play a young, psychopathic bad guy. If we wanted more closure from the Kovarian storyline, Ruth could be an Anti-River Song, The Silence's second attempt at killing the Doctor. River doesn't have to be involved, I'm saying that Ruth would be a human (with possible genetics from other races) who has been trained to kill the Doctor, just like River.

But then I'd want her to betray The Silence due to her own motives. She could have a really cool speech about how she was never really their toy they just gave her the knowledge, skills and technology she needs. If she isn't connected to the silence she could return more than once without people getting bored of that story line. She could end up being the closest thing to the female equivalent of The Master. SORRY, I JUST REALLY WANT A GREAT FEMALE VILLAIN.

I forgot! Love to see her as a companion though.

Here's another suggestion; Samantha Barks.

If Aiden Turner did appear then that would pretty much be a Being Human full house as Lenore Critchley, Russell Tovey and Sinead Keenan have already been on the show

It would be great to see Giancarlo Esposito also. Most likely as a villain. He can play it cool enough, but then just insane enough, to be Master material IMO.
