Who do you think the next Dr Who will be ?

Now Jodie Whitaker has announced her departure from the role, the speculation has started on who will be the new Dr Who. The person tipped to take on the role, Olly Alexander has denied it will be him. So it looks like the role is still available at the moment. This may however just be a bit of a smokescreen after Jo Martin appeared as a never before seen regeneration of the Doctor, or is this just another bit of a smokescreen ?

I think two of the other people suggested for the role, Idris Elba, or Gillian Anderson would make a good doctor. Idris would of course be the first Coloured male to play the part, and he has proved himself to be a very versatile actor. Gillian Anderson, played Agent Dana Scully in the X files so has been in a previous science fiction series, it would to an extent reinforce the Doctor's reincarnation to a woman by reincarnating into a woman again, but will the show be looking to further diversify. All the first doctors were portrayed by older men, with William Hartnell, the first Doctor, possibly being the oldest to do so. OK so I was a big fan of the show at one time, even going to see the 1966 film, Dr Who, and the Daleks. However, after leaving home I did not manage to watch the series regularly.

Who do you think the next Dr Who will be ?

It was a mistake having a female Dr and simply didn't work, not helped by the fact that Jodie Whitaker was dire. I think they should bring back David Tennent. Reply

After the disasters since David Tennent left they need a serious think about their whole direction or this is another ex-loyal fan who will continue to stay away. Maybe they should return to the original format such as where 55 year old William Hartnell was turned into an old Grandfather to add gravity and knowledge to the character whilst still being as least a little agile.

I was a fan of this show from Patrick Troughton and kept with it up to Peter Capaldi but that went downhill greatly in his final series when the BBC really started to push its woke agenda into it. I gave the first two episodes of Jodie Whitaker's run a go but couldn't watch anymore and from what I have read so did most of the shows fans. As for who will be the next Doctor Who, well, it's the BBC so of course it will be looking to diversify even more. My guess is that it will be another female actress, probably of different colour.
