The Doctor always wanted to be ginger.

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.

After The Red Wedding on Game of Thrones, the actor is free to make the jump from fantasy to sci-fi.

5. John Hurt

He’s already been cast as an incarnation for the 50th anniversary special, but would he stay on full-time?

Another stereotype to be broken. And c’mon, how awesome would she be?

His army of fangirls would go crazy. Many of them are already Doctor Who fans.

8. Rory Kinnear

Rumors are circulating he’s at the forefront of the executives’ minds.

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?

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.
