Farewell, Eleven, hello, Twelve!

Assume anything in this post or any link could be a spoiler, so don't blame me!

Matt Smith has announced he'll be leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year, which means it's time to play Fancast the Next Doctor!

Time for a 12th Doctor!

I don't buy at all the hype that the Doctor will change into a woman. I'm a feminist, but I don't feel like it would be all that progressive more as ridiculous pandering to have the Doctor do a gender swap after 50 years.

I could see them casting a black British actor, and Idris Elba is a veteran actor who would appeal to a broad audience and usher in a return to a more mature Doctor (since Matt Smith was the youngest actor to portray the man from Gallifrey).

My personal pick is Rupert Grint. He was fabulous in the Potter films, has wacky facial expressions and would fulfill the Doctor's recurring wish of regenerating into a ginger!

I could also see Sam Claflin in the role. Sam is about to blow up as Finnick in the The Hunger Games, and he's got the boyish charm to play a cheeky Time Lord.

And finally, I'm going to throw Nicholas Hoult into the ring. The Skins star is handsome, has range, and could totally pull off the hair-of-an-idiot thing.
