I thought they hinted at John Hurt.
If they go full out on the PC and make it a black gay woman - at least she will still have female companions.
Kidding. Sort of.

John Hurt was not hinted as the “next” Doctor but a part of the Doctors dark, long lost past.

I wouldn’t put it past them.

But Who fans are a prickly bunch. I just dont think they would want to screw with the show like this especially on its 50th birthday.

I loved Matt Smith. I especially liked him with Alex Kingston. Hated their latest addition, Clara, so I am nervously awaiting the new Doctor.

Clara has been different than the traditional companion because she’s apparently been with him in some form all along. Its not the usual comfortable relationship but I like her.

I’d LOVE it to be the new Superman guy. Forget his name but I could look sat him all day. A close second would be the horatio hornblower guy. Forget his name too but he’s WELL worth watching.

I think they should introduce ANOTHER Time Lord who is a woman, so that his species is not all dead. The Doctor should stay a guy of course.

David Tennant has been gone for a couple years. They’re apparently dumping Matt Smith.

Given the writing staff, it will likely be a black homosexual. Since David Tenant left, the show has become almost unwatchable, which is a shame because Matt is a very talented Doctor. But the writers have decided that Dr Who is to be used to indoctrinate viewers in homo-tolerance, and moose slime relevancy.

The way that London is going, by the time that they get to #13, it won't be The Doctor, it will be the Mahdī - the final Imām of the Shi'a 'Twelvers'! Wonder if we will be rooting for the Master or Daleks in that case.

LOL. Yeah, I was sorry to see Tennant go, too. Smith has been growing on me, but it’s not the same.

Interesting collection of possibilities on TVGuide.com.

Doctor Who: Who Should Be the Next Doctor?

They also list some pro's and con's for each possibility. [I mentioned Andrew Potts, the person in the last photo, when I first heard Matt Smith was leaving.]

I thought this was going to be about The Doctors, a show I have never watched, but that I think more highly of than Doctor Who.

Make it stop. Please.

They sort of did with River -- who was/will be married to The Doctor. Didn't one episode make a vague reference to a child of the two?

They’re apparently dumping Matt Smith.

Smith gave some indications last year that he was tiring of the roll. It wasn't until this year that he made the announcement. I never heard any rumors that he was being forced out.

Smith was named the replacement for Tennant in early 2009. IIRC, he will have been The Doctor for 4 seasons and Tennant was for 5 seasons.

I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to imply Smith was being forced out, just that he appears to be leaving the show. I hadn’t heard that he was asking to leave, but I don’t follow these things.

Exactly why I stopped watching. It became very transparently agenda driven and I could not stomach it. And I watched since Tom Baker was the Dr.

The same gaggle of homos ruined another sci fi series, Torchwood. The ‘star’ of that series was brought from a homo tolerance episode of Dr Who where the Doctor ‘rescues’ Captain Jack. Cpt Jack turns out to be a raving homo/bi-sexual degenerate and is fully ‘explored’ in Torchwood.

The was an episode, "The Doctor's Daughter", where the doctor's dna was used to make a young female clone of him. He could get in some incest action. Actually, he already has (David Tennant, who played the Doctor, wound up marrying Georgia Moffett, who played the daughter, and they now have three kids)

They have been bringing the homo crap more and more on DW, it is getting unbearable.

You could tell they wanted to spin-off the alien lesbians to their own show.

Absolutely victory
Win here, win there, win win everywhere
I’m on a quest
Right every single wrong
Right every wrong

I’m a total frickin rock star from mars – winning
C’mon bro, I got tiger blood – winning
You borrow my brain and you’re like DUDE, can’t handle it
Win here, win there, win win everywhere

I’ve got a list — help me sort this
From the epic win to the desperately winless

Give him a sonic screwdriver and he's good.

On top of that, Georgia Moffett is the daughter of the guy who played the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison, né Moffett).

I think we’ve already heard that John Hurt will be playing The Valeyard.

Nine lasted one season; Ten did three seasons plus the specials; Eleven has done the same.

I liked Nine’s intensity, Ten’s mania, and Eleven’s “mad man with a box” schtick. I especially loved River.

Couldn’t get to like Clara. I miss Donna Noble...

I hated that aspect of Captain Jack Harkness. It wasn’t bad in the Dr. Who series, but in the “Torchwood” it was flaming.
