I was really hoping for the Death in Paradise guy (either Ben Miller or Kris Marshall, not picky) for bringing that whitebread sorta understated air to the show. Like Peter Davidson did after Tom Baker. Just a breathing space after all the towering personalities we've had recently and an actor that will service the story rather than taking it over. I just want a Who serial which tells a good story and has the Doctor and Companions as actors within it rather than dominating it. I think Marshall in particular would be a good choice for that. Definitely the best of all the rabid casting rumors that have been circulating recently.

This is an insult to Peter Davidson

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Kidnapping him from comicon in the boot of your car is the insult. This is just saying he did a good job of bringing a different style to the show after the dominating presence Baker brought to it.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:37 pm (UTC)(link)
It's not a compliment to say that he did a good job of being bland and generic, and I don't think it's accurate to his performance either.

I didn't realize Kris Marshall was up for the role until recently. I miss him in Death in Paradise. Not sure how I feel about him as the Doctor, though.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I think Kris Marshall would bring a wonderful gentle quality to the Doctor. But I'm less concerned about who plays 13 than what Chris Chibnell will do as showrunner.

Take a good look at a list of the episodes Chris Chibnall wrote - he did some great episodes.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 10:05 pm (UTC)(link)
He was the defacto showrunner of the first two series of Torchwood and as much as I engaged with that show and thought it was a gift to fanwriters, in terms of pacing and structure it was a mess.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, Chris Addison anon! I was wondering if you were still around. :) But yeah. I think he'd make a good Doctor, sort of in that Peter Davison tradition.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 08:04 am (UTC)(link)
Damn you, anon! And here I was, hoping everybody would have forgotten about me by now. Yeah, I'm still around, still a CA fangirl, I just didn't have anything to say. But I thought a CA secret was long overdue, and since nobody else was gonna make one...Anyway, thanks for outing me.

Too white and too male. Ain't gonna happen.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd put good money down that they're not actually going to cast a woman. Non-white is more possible but I still think it's most likely to be a white man.

Of course I assume that this is just going to be another rant about SJWs and pandering from you so I'm not even sure why I'm replying.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
They were floating a rumor of an Anglo-Indian guy, so possibly an off-white might happen but not a full POC. I think(hope) that the possibility of a female doctor (something that has been Moffat's own personal fetish since his fanfic author days) is sunk though.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-18 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
A female doctor would be fine without Moffat writing it, really don't get the objection there.

Also I'm not inclined to defend Moffat's writing generally, but I think you're overstating the case with regards to that being Moffat's "fetish" - does it show up anywhere outside the joke at the end of Curse Of Fatal Death?

An 'off white'? Seriously? Are biracial people not good enough now to meet diversity status?

What the fucking hell? No need to be an asshole, dude. I was just thinking of the rumours that have been going on for years and that last year (I think?) news of BBC pushing diversity and inclusion quotas.

People like you make this place extremely unpleasant.

People have been going on a lot of weird rants about Doctor Who and SJWs the last few days guess it's gotten in my head

*looks at all the past Doctors* You're right, the track record for white guys is just terrible.

I really really really want Sacha Dhawan to get the role-- I've seen him in maybe two, three roles? And he was really good. Also hot. The man is smoking hot. It'd be nice to have an attractive doctor for once, if we can't have a female /shallow

Not really holding out hope he'll actually get the role, ofc, but he's my favourite out of the rumored casting choices.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
I usually like older Doctors, but I'd make an exception for Sacha Dhawan, I have to say.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
Eye Em Oh every doctor we've had in nu-who has been attractive

Not all of them have been pretty but

It'd be nice to have an attractive doctor for once

Excuse you, the Twelfth Doctor is smokin'. I've been lusting after Capaldi!Doctor for three years now, and I can testify to the hotness effect.

Nothing against Sacha Dhawan, just … give me silver-fox, beaky-nosed Twelve with his beautiful eyes and wild hair.

Anyway, I can't think about replacement casting right now. :(

Also, Boosh! No lie, just five minutes ago I was watching a Vince/Howard fanvid. <3 <3 <3

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 08:15 am (UTC)(link)
I know, right? I think all of the Doctors were attractive in their own way, but Capaldi's is the first one I'm personally attracted to. I can't imagine anyone not seeing just how damn hot the man is.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-19 09:44 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry OP, but you're right when you say it's not gonna happen. And not because he's a white dude like some people say, but because he just doesn't have the screen presence needed to be the Doctor. He's boring. On top of that, he's not really an actor, is he? He wouldn't be able to pull off those touching, dramatic moments like all the other Doctors before him
