Who will be the next Doctor Who? Speculation is rampant as Jodie Whittaker leaves the show. Hugh Grant has to stop casting rumors.

Doctor Who has lasted as long as a series, thanks to a very unique plot that sees the Doctor “re” as someone else. The idea was originally written for the show after the main lead, William Hartnell, fell ill and ran into conflict with the showrunners. In 1966, in his final episode as the Doctor, Harntell is “reborn” into Patrick Troughton, the Second Doctor. Since then, the series has regularly replaced the lead actor. Matt Smith, David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, and Christopher Eccleston played the Doctor in the modern version of the series, with Whittaker being the latest. now he is announced that he would be leaving in July 2021, along with showrunner Chris Chibnall.The search for the next Doctor Who continues.

Upcoming Doctor Who showrunner returns to legend Russell T. Davies and has done his bit by contributing to casting rumors. HE IS He told SFX that he’s a Sin actor Olly Alexander would be “a great Doctor Who” Before kidding, that such a quote will cause problems. Alexander’s manager ends rumors in a hilarious, wordplay-filled statement claiming the actor is focusing on his music career, but we still haven’t ruled him out.

In December 2021, Davies said the show hasn’t chosen a new Doctor yet, and it’s auditioning. had just begun. So who might be on the list? Here are 10 actors who could be cast as the next Doctor Who.

1. John Martin

Perhaps the most likely option is Jo Martin, who was introduced as the Runaway Doctor in Doctor Who season 12. In particular, he is the first person of color to play the Doctor, so it would be great to see him return as the official Fourteenth Doctor. The Fugitive Doctor is said to be an earlier incarnation of the Doctor, perhaps even before the First Doctor, and is generally a more brutal version of the goofy character. It would be great to see Martin stretch more in the role and add depth to Doctor Fugitive.

2. Olly Alexandre

You can say you’re not in talks to be the next Doctor Who, but if you say that in a Doctor-worthy pun and we won’t believe you. Alexander’s agent’s official statement reads: “Although the cyber guys contact Olly frequently, I’m afraid I have to quell these speculations. While it’s nice to see interest in this story revived, that’s not true. While it sounds like Ood, Olly is focusing on his music for now. ” It’s clear that Alexander is a Whovian, and the actor’s proximity to showrunner Davies (who created It’s a Sin, from which Alexander appears) makes the actor more likely to enter the TARDIS, although he is younger than Matt Smith when he took on the role. …

3. Michaela Coel

Michaela Coel is the perfect choice for the Fourteenth Doctor, as she manages to balance comedy and drama with ease. Coel is best known for his creativity and leading roles in Chewing Gum and I May Destroy You, but he’s no stranger to science fiction. Coel is starring in a Star-Trek-inspired episode of Black Mirror, so he definitely knows his way around a spaceship. Coel will be the first black woman and non-white person to be chosen to play the lead role in The Doctor, which will be a big step forward for the series. Asked if The Guardian will take on the lead role in September 2021, Coel said: “I never say never to anything… I guess that’s my answer.

4. Michael Sheen

Michael Sheen, who is currently co-starring with Doctor Who actor David Tennant in Good Omens, is a fan favorite for the role. Sheen won Radio Times Search The Next Doctor, By defeating Richard Ayoade, Jo Martin and Andrew Scott. Sheen has technically been in Doctor Who—he voiced the villain House in an episode written by Neil Gaiman (who wrote the book Good Omens), but Peter Capaldi was in an episode of Doctor Who before he became the Doctor, so it doesn’t matter. Sheen certainly has acting talent, and maybe Tennant can give him hints on the set of Good Omens, but another middle-aged white man might not be the ideal choice for the next Doctor.

5. Lydia West

Lydia West, another It’s a Sin star, is such a popular choice for the next Doctor. UK betting sites reportedly forced to close their books After gambling in the West. While bookies have certainly been wrong before, shutting down betting books that never came to fruition, the same sites have suspended bets on Peter Capaldi’s replacement for Matt Smith as the Doctor. Even Whittaker wants West to be in the role: the current Doctor has said this in an interview. BBC Radio 1 episode, to which Davies responds with “observed”. West will be a wonderful addition to the Doctor’s legacy, adding youth and diversity as well as impressive acting skills.

6. T’Nia Miller

If you’ve watched The Haunting of Bly Manor, you know the power of T’Nia Miller. Miller certainly broke hearts when he portrayed a doomed mansion manager in the Netflix series Mike Flanagan, so we know he has the ability to fully engage us. It would also continue the hilarious little tradition of Doctor Who supporting lead characters alongside Capaldi and Karen Gillan – playing an unnamed guard in a 2015 Capaldi-led episode called ‘Hell Bent’. Miller expressed interest in the role in an interview. screen Ronentsaying “I would” [him] a call”, because it would be “fun” to play the Doctor. We have to agree that it will be a great addition to the Doctor’s legacy.

8. Millie Bobby Brown

Thanks to Stranger Things, we know Millie Bobby Brown can be thoughtful and strong, and thanks to Enola Holmes, she can be smart and witty. These are the four pillars of the Doctor. 18-year-old Brown would be the youngest version of the Doctor to date, but it would bring a new and interesting perspective to the character – what happens when a 900-year-old alien awakens in the body of a young girl? Brown hasn’t talked about Doctor Who, but if Stranger Things season 4 filming ends, it might be time… right?

9. Rahul Kohli

Rahul Kohli would be perfect for the role of Doctor. Yes, told everyone to stop tweeting about Doctor WhoDr. Ravi Chakrabarti on IZombie from The CW, but we can only dream. Kohli has demonstrated his ability to be charming and warm while breaking hearts in his work with Mike Flanagan on The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass, so we know he has the range necessary to play the Doctor. The fact that he is both a social media human rights defender and an insolent nerd further supports our claim.

10. Omar Douglas

Omari Douglas is another Sin star who would make a Perfect Doctor. said Douglas iNews Rumors that he’s stepping into the role are “an honour,” and Davies has neither confirmed nor denied it. “She has everything you need in a lead actress,” Davies said. “He is fearless and boundless. And even when the subject is difficult, it remains a lot of fun.” Alexander supported him as a Doctor.noting that The Doctor is “quite queer” and that “it would make sense for a queer actor to take on the role”.

Next Doctor Who: 10 actors who could step into the Tardis

Who will be the next Doctor Who? With Jodie Whittaker leaving the series, speculation is running rampant, with even Hugh Grant having to shut down casting rumors.
Doctor Who has lasted so long as a series thanks to a very unique plot point that sees the Doctor “regenerate” as someone else. The idea was first written into the show after original lead William Hartnell fell ill and was clashing with showrunners. In 1966, in his last episode as Doctor, Harntell “regenerates” into Patrick Troughton, who became the Second Doctor. Since then, the series has regularly replaced its lead actor. Matt Smith, David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, and Christopher Eccleston have all played the Doctor in the modern iteration of the series, with Whittaker being the latest. Now that she’s announced that she’s leaving in July 2021 along with showrunner Chris Chibnall, the search is on for the next Doctor Who.
Doctor Who’s next showrunner is returning legend Russell T. Davies, and he’s done his own part in contributing to casting rumors. He told SFX that It’s a Sin actor Olly Alexander would be “a marvelous Doctor Who” before joking that such a quote would cause trouble. Alexander’s agent shut down the rumors in a hilarious pun-filled statement, claiming the actor is focusing on his music career, but we haven’t ruled him out just yet. 
As of December 2021, Davies has said that the series had yet to cast a new Doctor and that auditions had only just started. So, who could potentially be on the shortlist? Here are 10 actors who could be cast as the next Doctor Who. 
1. Jo Martin

(Image credit: BBC)
Perhaps the most likely option, Jo Martin was introduced as the Fugitive Doctor in the 12th season of Doctor Who. Notably, she’s the first person of color to play the role of Doctor, so it would be lovely to see her return as the official Fourteenth Doctor. The Fugitive Doctor is rumored to be an earlier incarnation of the Doctor, perhaps even before the First Doctor, and is a more ruthless version of the often goofy character. It would be great to see Martin flex more in the role and add depth to the Fugitive Doctor.
2. Olly Alexander

You can say you’re not in talks to be the next Doctor Who, but if you say so with a pun-filled statement worthy of the Doctor, we’re not going to believe you. The official statement from Alexander’s agent reads: “Even though Olly is often contacted by cybermen, I’m afraid I have to exterminate this speculation. As nice as it is to see interest in this story regenerate, it just isn’t true. As Ood as it might sound, Olly is focusing on his music, for the time being.” It’s clear that Alexander is a Whovian, and the actor’s proximity to showrunner Davies (who created It’s a Sin, which Alexander appeared in) makes it even more likely the actor could step into the TARDIS. Though he’s young, he’s older than Matt Smith was when he took on the role…
3. Michaela Coel

Coel has a starring role in a Star-Trek inspired episode of Black Mirror, so she certainly knows her way around a spaceship. Coel would be the first Black woman and person of color cast as the mainline Doctor, which would be a great step forward for the series. In response to The Guardian asking if she’d step into the titular role back in September 2021, Coel said: “I never say never to anything…I guess that’s my answer 
4.  Michael Sheen

Michael Sheen, who currently stars in Good Omens alongside Doctor Who alum David Tennant, is a fan-favorite choice for the role. Sheen won the Radio Times poll for next Doctor, beating out Richard Ayoade, Jo Martin, and Andrew Scott. Sheen has technically already been in Doctor Who – he voiced the villainous House in an episode written by Neil Gaiman (who wrote the book Good Omens), but Peter Capaldi was in an episode of Doctor Who before he was the Doctor, so no matter. Sheen certainly has the acting chops, and perhaps Tennant could give him tips on the Good Omens set, but another middle-aged white man may not be the ideal choice for the next Doctor.  
5. Lydia West

Another It’s a Sin star, Lydia West is such a popular choice for the next Doctor that UK betting sites reportedly had to close their books after being flooded with bets on West.

If you’ve seen The Haunting of Bly Manor you know the power of T’Nia Miller. Miller absolutely broke hearts in her portrayal of a doomed manor manager in the Mike Flanagan Netflix series, so we know she has the ability to keep us thoroughly engaged. She’d also keep up the hilarious little tradition of Doctor Who side characters ending up in starring roles alongside Capaldi and Karen Gillan – she plays an unnamed guard in a 2015 Capaldi-led episode called ‘Hell Bent.’ Miller expressed interest in the role in an interview with Screen Rant, saying she would “give [him] a call” as playing the Doctor would be “fun”. We’d have to agree, as she would be a great addition to the legacy of the Doctor.

8. Millie Bobby Brown

Thanks to Stranger Things, we know Millie Bobby Brown can play brooding and powerful, and thanks to Enola Holmes, we know she can play whip-smart and witty. That’s the four main pillars of the Doctor right there. At 18 years old, Brown would be the youngest version of the Doctor to date, but it would be an interesting new take on the character – what happens when a 900-year-old alien wakes up in the body of a teenage girl? Brown hasn’t spoken about Doctor Who at all, but if Stranger Things season 4  is done filming, she might have the time… right? 
9. Rahul Kohli

(Image credit: Netflix)
Rahul Kohli would be a perfect fit for the role of Doctor. Yes, he told everyone to stop tweeting at him about Doctor Who, as he’s “already played the best TV doctor” as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti in the CW’s IZombie, but we can dream. Kohli has shown an ability to be charming and warm while also shattering hearts in his work with Mike Flanagan in both The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass, so we know he has the range needed to play the Doctor. That he’s a vocal advocate for human rights on social media and an unabashed nerd further supports our argument.
10. Omari Douglas

(Image credit: BBC)
Omari Douglas is another It’s a Sin star who would make for a perfect Doctor. Douglas told iNews the rumors about him stepping into the role are “an honor” and Davies hasn’t confirmed nor denied it. “He’s just got everything you need in a leading actor,” Davies said. “He’s fearless and limitless. And stays great fun, even when the subject matter is tough.” Alexander has backed him as the Doctor, stating that the Doctor is “quite queer” and it would “make sense for a queer actor to take the role.” In that same conversation, Alexander removed himself from consideration, but we’ll keep that above entry up there.
