…Well, not quite yet. But the fans are really going at it (and so are the Internet forums) over WHO will be the eleventh actor — or actress — to play the role of scifi’s beloved time traveler. Stephen Moffat takes over the show come 2010 for Series Five. But the question still remains: who can fill Tennant’s shoes and do one up? Who can be a better Doctor now, since the show was revived in 2005, and keep the series going as strong and dynamic as ever before?
Two weeks ago I received word that Tennant was going to retire from the show. His final stories would lead up to Christmas 2009’s special, The Next Doctor. And boy, will there be a regeneration. But Daniel Radcliffe, Russell Tovay, Paterson Joseph, and many other very young names are among the possible contenders to succeed him! You know, I like my Doctors a bit older than my companions. Stephen Moffat has worked alongside fine actors such as James Nesbitt (but he denies any rumors of the part). I first blogged about it here (I also ran a favorite Doctor poll):
DOCTOR WHO: DAVID TENNANT SAYS GOODBYE…

So who do you think should be the next Doctor? Better yet, who deserves to be the next Doctor Who? I’ve composed a new poll of 11 names. Eleven names for eleven possible, and rumored, Doctors. Also, I’ve added two additional choices: “None of the Above” and “Cast an Unknown”, to even things out a bit, because I realize that being a Doctor calls for a pretty big list. Please vote below!
Come, take a DOCTOR WHO poll with me…
