This is going to see me voting UKIP for the rest of my life. There's some things you just shouldn't touch.

Or they can do the decent thing and give it to Tim Roth.
I never watch Dr Who, but I'm hoping they cast a transgender, somalian-born muslim as the lead, just for you Beans. Then you can justify discussing your politics that little bit more. :P
A somalian-born muslim is fine by me. Just don't make it a woman. If the wimmin want a sci-fi lead they should censored off and invent their own rather than crapping their agenda on a long-running show I'm deeply fond of.

You're both right, the regeneration will happen at Xmas.

Personally I'd be happy with Rory Kinnear or Richard Ayoade.

A woman playing Who wouldn't bother me, but most of the names mentioned would. Miranda Hart?? NO!

I never understood why they did the whole sex change thing for the Master(to the Mistress), when there was a perfectly decent(and probably with a lot of story potential - as there were only two stories in the old series) female villain in the form of the Rani. I think the producer said that he didn't like the character. It seems like a missed opportunity to me.

Well, as Moffat is off at the same time as Capaldi, then it will be in the hands of whoever is taking over I guess to determine the new direction...

A shame that he never got the opportunity. I know he did the TV film and I know there's the audio stories and so on; I also remember that the BBC re-imagined "Shada" with him in it, on their website as a flash animation story. At least, it was good that he got a part(albeit small) in the 50th anniversary.

Yes, Chris Chibnall will be picking the new Doctor.

I'm sorry Peter Capaldi is going so soon. Genuinely enjoyed him as the Doctor.

Damn shame about Capaldi leaving as he was brilliant last series.

It was inevitable though unfortunately, especially with a new showrunner coming it.

I've watched every Dr. Who since I was old enough to watch TV (sometime in the mid '70s probably), but if they choose a woman as the Doctor I may actually boycott it.

I don't want a one legged female black Chinese lesbian Doctor. It's supposed to be a white British male actor thank you very much.

I don't think people would be happy if The Joker was suddenly a woman, or Bond, or Dracula, or Sherlock Holmes, or they turned Ripley or Sarah Connor into a man. Why do people have to mess with things? If you want something different, make up a new character.

The character is a regenerating space alien with 2 hearts appearing in a kids tv show where for over 50 years they've regularly changed the rules of the universe to fit the latest story.

So what?
A female Doctor is a load of toss. It's an overturning of harmless tradition just to appease the "progressive" whiners. There is no upside.

I agree if that's all they're doing it for & it's someone terrible then that is indeed a pathetic sop, on the other hand if it's a decent actress that turns out to be brilliant in the role then I really don't see the problem.

I just found it pretty funny in a universe of infinate possibilities where Dr Who has been an old man, a young man, a thin man a fat man, Scottish at least twice and has a different gimmick each regeneration, that someone would be so precious if he wasn't played by a "white British male actor"

Yeah don't see the problem either way tbh. Would quite like Miranda Hart as the Doctor to pull out a name at random
