    A Female Doctor Who. 14th Jul 17 at 11:31 PM
    According to BBC website the new Dr who will be revealed on Sunday after Wimbledon.

    Any guesses as to who this will be?

    My money is on Kris Marshall.

    Any other thoughts?

    I don't even watch Dr Who!

    I stopped watching as I didn't like Peter Capaldi in the role. I wouldn't mind if the next Doctor is Andrew Lee Potts, I certainly won't be watching if it's Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

    I think both Kris Marshall and Andrew Lee Potts would be great.

    As a Dr Who fan from the first episode I think Peter Capaldi was the worst ever.

    For me Peter Capaldi wasn't the worst in the role by any means, however the characteristics given to the Dr by the writers were certainly different. But then so was every other incarnation. He was by far the most talented actor amongst a host of great actors.

    My little hand made a school in 1966 Dalek and I are eagerly waiting for the announcement on Sunday. It matters not who the new Dr will be, it'll be how the character is portrayed that matters, in my opinion.

    I really disliked the odd quirkiness of Sylvester McAoy and even (my era) Peter Baker.

    There was absolutely nothing wrong with Capaldi in the role. The writing let him down, and also the stupid Clara story. But, he's also been a massive fan of the show, and he understood how the the Doctor should have been portrayed, which is old school. I still say that he has been the be NU-Who Doctor since the series restarted.
    In regards to the new Doctor. As long as it isn't a woman, or some young bloke that the Tennant Brigade can swoon over, I'll be happy.
    The Doctor should always be a bloke, with a bit of age to him which shows on his face.
    And it had better be someone I have actually heard of too - So there!!

    Oops. Tom Baker! See, he was my era and not very good which is why his name escaped me. He was so much better in the cameo role.

    actually I agree about Patrick Troughton but wouldn't it be a boring life if we all agreed on anything. Imagine the General Election results

    I did watch them all apart from the last 1-2 series with Matt Smith onwards.

    Doctor Who was the first bit of non kids tv I watched with Colin Baker.

    I liked Chris Ecclestone, liked David Tennant until it got silly with the romance with Billy Piper, didn't watch Matt Smith (far too young to be the Doctor), and am quite enjoying watching Peter Capaldi ...

    The next one had better be over 30, and have character.
