For me I would like a young, 20 something, jack the lad type. Someone who is very confident, funny and charming

I quite like the idea of having Aneurin Barnard play the doctor. He was amazing in We'll take Manhattan alongside Karen Gillian and think he could do it. He's young and fresh. I imagine him as being a loud, blunt and cocky while still being charming and likeable.

Someone a bit older for a change. Alan Rickman perhaps.

I think Geoffery Rush would make a good older doctor

It's a time loop, I think. Or all the other 999 threads on this subject have disappeared into a crack.

Someone who is older - it is getting really difficult to equate the experience the doctor has and played by someone who is just 20.

I think about 35 to 50 works best with someone like Joseph Fiennes, Danny Webb, James D'Arcy or Rufus Sewell as the Doctor.

I think we need a slightly older doctor this time. 35 - 55 probably would be good.
Showing the things he has been through the last few years. Losing his best freinds, losing his wife and dealing with his past selves in the 50th. Two things must remain though his need for adventure and his desire to help/protect innocents from all forms of evil.

I don't understand why people keep mentioning actors who have been in loads of other programmes. Matt Smith was relatively unknown and that worked well. I think we should have another relatively unknown as the twelfth doctor.

Harry Styles

After all, he already has a rather distinctive hairstyle and will no doubt bring in the younger demographic that the show is apparently courting.

P.S. Just kidding!

Idris Elba - slightly nuts, slightly alien, troubled and somewhat dangerous. Perfect.

Elliot Cowan,s vigilante turn on Luther this week made me like him for it as much as Idris.

Aren't you basically just asking for a younger David Tennant??

I strongly believe that the role of the Doctor mustn't get stereotyped or uniform. Selecting another young doctor straight after Matt Smith, and also a young charming type personality just like Tennant - it wouldn't be good.

An older, less charismatic, different doctor would be my preference. No particular actor in mind.
