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

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.

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.

It is if that type of understated almost everyman acting is what he is/was aiming that. Davidson does that well, and it worked really well too.

Understated I'd agree with but not "whitebread" or generic

Davison's Doctor is still the Doctor

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.

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.

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.
