The Newest on Doctor Who The Picking to be The New Doctor

Right now, there is a lot of speculation going on as to who the next Doctor will be. Should he be Black? Should he be a woman? Should he be a Black woman? Honestly, I really would prefer the next Doctor to be, well, a good actor.
Stepping aside for a moment from all the speculation that is going on.
So to me, who the next Doctor is going to be doesn’t matter. I don’t care if the next Doctor is Rupert Grint of “Harry Potter” fame, or Idris Elba, an actor I haven’t ever heard of before. I don’t care if the next Doctor is a woman. I just want someone who meets some very specific critireon-
1) he or she must be from The British Isles- so English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish.
2) Must be a pretty decent actor who can portray a thousand year old Time Lord.

Now, we actually don’t know what kind of background rules we have regarding Time Lord regenerations. Could it be that Time Lords are limited in their regenerations to just their ancestral genetic makeup?
We do have, thanks to Neil Gaiman, confirmation that Time Lords can regenerate across the sexes. And thanks to River Song (Melody Pond), we know that racial makeup isn’t set across regenerations either. After all, River’s second regeneration, Amy and Rory’s friend Mels, was portrayed by Maya Glace-Green as a child and Nina Toussaint-White as an adult. Both actresses being Black. So, River goes from being White to being Black to being White again.

But then there's Jenna-Louise Coleman who says that she dose not no who's going to be the doctor becuase they have not chosen a new doctor yet she also says she is not exactly happy with the idea of Matt Smith leaving Doctor Who which a lot of people including me can relate to. The actress who marks the Eleventh Doctor’s third companion told the BBC that “I don’t even want to pick up that script just yet!”

Coleman sat down with the BBC (video here) after meeting Queen Elizabeth at the official opening of the BBC’s Broadcasting House. Coleman has stated that it was “such an honor” to meet the Queen, but all anyone wanted to know is who will be the next Doctor.

Coleman said “Everybody else in the building has asked me who the next Doctor is, and I can tell you honestly we don’t know. It’s going to be a long, long search. But yes, I’m being asked that question a lot.” At this point, all she knows is that Smith’s final story will be filmed this autumn and will be the 2013 Christmas special.

A lot of speculation has been going on since the news that Smith would be leaving ths how broke. Names bandied about run from the absurd to the likely and cross gender, age and race. Not mentioned have been a few interesting ideas like Georgia Moffat who played Jenny in an episode of Doctor Who, and Alexander Sidig, best known as Doctor Julian Bashir on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

At the moment, the BBC will only say that the search is on for the next actor to play the rogue Time Lord.

Filming is suppose to start soon on the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special, and that means that means that the fans may not need to wait too long before we find out who will be taking over the TARDIS in its journey through space and time.
With the departure of Matt Smith already announced, speculation has been rife as to who the next Doctor will be. Speculation has run from the impossible to the improbable to the possible.
The Twelfth Doctor is set to appear for the first time at the end of the Christmas special after the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith, regenerates.

A source with the BBC told Radio Times that it will be virtually impossible to keep the identity of the new Doctor a secret. The source stated “The search has begun in earnest and is active now.” According to the source, the BBC is not ruling out hiring a woman to fill the role, but the decision will be made by a small number of people with the BBC and kept under wraps.
Steven Moffat will be joined by BBC’s head of television Danny Cohen, controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson, casting director Any Pryor and incoming executive producer Brian Minchin in deciding who Smith’s replacement will be.

Moffat is also the force behind the show Sherlock, and came to the attention of American audiences thanks to the television series Coupling.Officals say they will not be able to keep it under wraps till the Christmas special so they problemly will now by lat July.
