Someone told me yesterday that the new incarnation of The Doctor might be released by the BBC that night. I was pretty sure that was just media hype but it didn’t stop me from getting excited and checking my phone every 5 minutes to see if the BBC had added an announcement…
You can imagine my frustration as, by midnight, I found nothing. Still nothing today, too. I think, sadly, there will remain nothing – not a scrap of actual, official news – for a long time yet.
However, that doesn’t stop me day dreaming about who I reckon the new Doctor SHOULD be (in my opinion, which is Gospel. In my opinion).
I love Red heads. I have for years. I like to think my baby will be a carrot-top. That’s the plan, anyway. So, I love the fact that The Doctor wants to be ginger. This makes him, for me, infinitely more loveable (is it possible?).
Therefore I think the next Doctor SHOULD be (significantly dramatic drum roll)…:
I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it for years to come. Damien Lewis is a beautiful, talented, exceptionally wonderful actor who is also ginger.
How touching would it be if, in homage to all these years disappointed he’s not ginger, The Doctor is a red head for his final regeneration? Answer: VERY.
Anyway, I’ll leave you with that enlightening piece of life changing information.
