Recently, Peter Capaldi was cast as the twelfth doctor. While I'm quite warming to this idea and quite like it, I still think there are other actors who could have done it much better.

1) Idris Elba

Yep, still clinging onto this idea. But for good reason. I imagine that if he was put into the role of timelord, he would bring a dark edge to it similar to Eccleston did, but yet may also bring a friendly and more mysterious feel to the role like Sylvester McCoy did. Plus, with all this talk about having a first female or American doctor, has anyone actually thought about a black doctor yet? In pretty much everything else, they're always talking about having a black version of the character, even in Bond, and yet Doctor Who would be a perfect platform for that, and yet barley anyone's even considered it. Plus the doctors in my opinion are beginning to get too young, so Idirs would be the perfect balance between young and old. Plus he would be a truly interesting doctor.

2)Jason Fleyming

Yes, still hanging onto this idea also. Jason Fleming would be an ideal choice for the 12th doctor! For a start, the doctor for some time now has wanted to be ginger but so far his wish has not been granted, Jason is ginger, so wish accomplished! Jason would bring the same kind of charms that David Tennant or Patrick Troughtan did. Plus yet again, perfect barrier between young and old. Plus as well as being funny, compassionate, charming, and generally nice, yet again he could have a dark and mysterious feel akin to Eccleston. Plus maybe a hint of Tom Baker in him could work.

3) Damien Molony

Probably my top choice for the role, appearing in "Being Human" as the vampire Hal, Damien is no stranger to sci-fi and horror. He would be quite similar to Paul McGann's incarnation of the doctor, and a posh doctor would be a nice change. Damien would be a heroic doctor, I could imagine him facing off against he Daleks as we speak! He'd be young & handsome, but we'd have none of this kinetic bouncing around the TARDIS and speaking 100 miles and hour crap. Yes, he'd take the dark route.

List to be completed.
