The Next Doctor Who

A woman for the role?

So Matt Smith is set to leave his role as Doctor Who after four years.

Matt is the 11th actor to immortalise the famous Sci-Fi role, but who’s going to be number 12?

We think it’s about time a woman played legendary The Time Lord.

Here are our suggestions.

Anyone who can make child birth gags in front of a Bafta TV audience of millions is more than alright with us.

Garai is poised, confident and a little unpredictable, the ideal arsenal of character traits to play The Doctor.

She’s the TV sweetheart of the moment whose career just seems to get better and better.

After the staggering success of Broadchurch and a big night at the recent Baftas, she is untouchable.

If anyone can play a time travelling, humanoid alien, it’s Coleman.

Could Smith replace Smith? The actress sure is versatile.

She can do stage and screen (big and small) and is something of a national treasure.

After picking up the award for best actress at the Baftas this year, she sobbed and asked, ‘Is this a wind up?’ Sheridan, you have our vote.

We think Tilda is an ingenious idea. Who better to nail the eccentricity and mystery of the enigmatic doctor?

Her statuesque beauty and otherworldliness make her the ideal candidate for the role.

Bear with us. Our June cover star has been an actress for most of her life so we don’t have anything to worry about with her acting credentials.

We don’t now what it is but we can really see her Twerking it out in the Tardis and fighting Daleks in a onsie.

It’s no secret that Cara is keen to forge an acting career and the model certainly isn’t lacking when it comes to kooky, oddball, Dr Who style antics.

Who knows, maybe her sidekick could be ‘wifey’ Rita Ora? Now there’s a formidable pair.
