New Who

Who’s going to be the next Doctor Who? There are a lot of names being thrown around – some of them for spurious reasons like “he’s worked with Stephen Moffat before” or “he’s Jon Pertwee’s son”. Personally I’d love for it to go to Chiwetel Ejiofor, but I think that’s pretty unlikely as he’s now pretty much ensconced in Hollywoodland.

So here’s my official suggestion: Simon McBurney. He’s an amazing actor, looks a bit like Johnny Rotton and – perhaps most importantly – isn’t James Nesbit. I haven’t seen his name mentioned anywhere else, so I’m going to take credit for this if it actually happens.
