Doctor Who? Bets On The Next Doctor

June 7, 2013 - Posted by Alice Jenkinson

If you’re a complete sci-fi nerd like some of us, myself included, then you’ll be biting your nails until the Christmas special of Doctor Who when we finally find out who will be playing the next regeneration of the last Time Lord of Gallifrey. At the moment there is some interesting speculation about who could play The Doctor, who the fans want as The Doctor, and could the new regeneration even be female? Before you ask, yes, they can regenerate between genders. Science!

A Ginger Doctor?

At the moment, there are over 40 different actors and actresses suspected to be playing the Doctor. I would list them out, but you could just head on over to Paddy Power and see them for yourself. Instead, here are some of my own favourites:

Rupert Grint

We’ve all seen Harry Potter, so don’t act like you don’t know who Ron Weasley is. The past two regenerations have complained about not being ginger, so could it finally be time for a Doctor with red hair?

Benedict Cumberbatch

You’ll recognise him from either the Sherlock TV series or from the recent movie ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’. Either way, you can rest assured he would make a very interesting Doctor, plus his last name is fun to pronounce.

Fun Fact: Benedict Cumberbatch’s fan base is known as ‘Cumberbitches’.

Tom Hiddleston

If you don’t think that Loki from ‘Thor’ and ‘Avengers Assemble’ would make an amazing Doctor then you need to re-think your life.

If you think you can work out who will be playing the next regeneration of The Doctor, then why not put down a bet with Paddy Power? There’s plenty of time until the Christmas episode is released, so you can think about it for a while whilst re-watching the last series that just finished.
