1. Amanda Tapping
She was awesome as Helen Magnus in Sanctuary and would bring so much no-nonsense badassery as a Time Lord.
2. Rose Leslie
Yes she’s young, bla bla bla. She’s also tough as nails in Game of Thrones and would own The Doctor. Plus, who doesn’t want a ginger Doctor?
3. Romola Garai
Oh, you’ve never watched The Hour? First, get on that. She would be the classiest Doctor ever, and Ben Whishaw could be her companion. I can imagine it so clearly.
4. Gina Torres
I can barely wrap my head around how awesome she’d be as The Doctor. Really, I just picture Zoe Washburne flying around in The Tardis, and that’s OK with me.
5. Lara Pulver
She’s so great in everything she does (I especially loved her as Irene Adler in Sherlock). She’s got a mystique quality that every Doctor should have.
6. Lena Headey
Yes yes yes. Her Doctor would take no shit from anyone, including her companion.
7. Anna Torv
She already knows how to hop between universes and fight alternate versions of herself, playing The Doctor should be a breeze!
8. Tatiana Maslany
I mean, she could play The Doctor and the companion and no one would know. She’s that good.
9. Gillian Anderson
She would act the shit out of the role and we all know it.
