The Next Doctor

Presenter Terry Wogan today announced on his radio show that the person playing the next Doctor might be revealed during this year's Children in Need. Would this be a wise move, however, as it could spoil the surprise... What do you think? Below are some odds which have already been made about who might be handed the TARDIS keys: (the higher up the list, the more likely it is to be them)

2/1 David Morrisey
6/1 Patterson Joseph
8/1 James Nesbitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor
10/1 Russell Tovey, John Simm
12/1 Anthony Head
14/1 Robert Carlyle, David Walliams
16/1 Richard E. Grant
18/1 Richard Coyle, Aidan Gillen, Alan Davies, Sean Pertwee
20/1 Jason Statham, Harry Lloyd, Nigel Harman, Marc Warren, Jack Davenport
25/1 Julian Walsh, Adrian Lester, Alexander Armstrong
33/1 Julian Rhind-Tutt, Rupert Penry-Jones, James McAvoy
40/1 Bill Nighy, Stephen Fry, Ben Wishaw
50/1 John Barrowman, Ben Miles, David Suchet, Hugh Laurie
66/1 Gary Oldman, Matt Smith, Paul Bettany, Joel Beckett, Christopher Eccleston
80/1 Alex Kingston, Dean Lennox Kelly, Christopher Villiers
100/1 Ricky Gervais
150/1 Hugh Grant, Russell Brand, Vinnie Jones
200/1 Robbie Williams

There are certainly some strange and random suggestions, who out of the list would you like to play the Doctor? Credit to Outpost Gallifrey for all the info.

Great Post! It's nice seeing all those names of people rumoured, but none of them are very likely! :)

I'd like to see the bloke that plays Brian in My Parents Are Aliens take up the role of the Doctor once David passes the baton. He's someone I could watch and laugh at on telly, I couldnt fall for him like David obviously, but I think he'd make an excellent Doctor, witty, humourous and well worth watching. Don't think he'd be into the running that the 10th Doctor used to do, but each one different, eh?

If David Morrissey were to play the 11th Doctor, I doubt I'd watch it, or if I did, not with the same enthusiasm.

Great post, not sure I want the next doc to be announced.

True, but these days people know the result before its put on the telly. Sad really!

It would be good if the person was a complete unknown, then at least we had no way of knowing anything about him. But David will take some topping I reckon.
