Hey Dr. Who

Recommended Posts

I was having a chat with a buddy about David Bradley performance as William Hartnells doctor and the conversation turned to who could play the other early doctors and I thought Aidan Gillen as Patrick Troughton and Sean Bean as Jon Pertwee - but who could play Tom Bakers doctor? Stumped both of us. Any Ideas?

Heh. He'd be great for if they adapted Interference!

Spoiler

A novel in which the Third Doctor gets prematurely killed (a permanent alteration to his personal history, not something that gets reset by the end of the book).

Or how about a better idea - Sean Pertwee as Jon Pertwee?

Benedict Cumberbatch?

Lacks the physicality but could pull of the manic glee, I feel.

James McAvoy as the Fifth Doctor? He has that same young-ish charm, although he's a decade older than Davison was when he took up the role.

The manic glee is definitely the most important part.
