1. Rupert Grint
The Doctor always wanted to be ginger.
2. Ben Whishaw
Fans are already speculating on this one. Who knows, cardigans could be cool…
3. Idris Elba
The Luther star would bring major dramatic flair while breaking stereotypes of the part.
4. Richard Madden
After The Red Wedding on Game of Thrones, the actor is free to make the jump from fantasy to sci-fi.
6. Helen Mirren
Another stereotype to be broken. And c’mon, how awesome would she be?
7. Tom Hiddleston
His army of fangirls would go crazy. Many of them are already Doctor Who fans.
9. Matthew Lewis
Yes, another Harry Potter star, but look at him.
10. Russell Tovey
He’s admitted that he was up for the part, but lost out to Matt Smith. Could his former appearances as Alonso hurt his chances?
11. Richard Armitage
The actor has already gained a substantial following thanks to his work in BBC’s Robin Hood, North and South, and as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit.
12. David Harewood
Another actor to have appeared on the show, but bookmakers have his odds at 4/1.
