ATTENTION DOCTOR WHO FANS: This Sunday at 2 p.m., the new Doctor will be announced. In honor of this momentous occasion, we have come up with some speculations on who will play the 12th Doctor.

Billie Piper

She played Rose, aka the best companion (yes, the best companion, you cannot fight me on this), so why not have her become the next Time Lord? It’s high time we have a lady Doctor.

It suits her!

It suits her!

David Tennant

So what if he was already the Doctor? He can do it again because it’s Doctor Who and nothing really makes sense anyway.

I mean, c'mon.

I mean, c’mon.

Idris Elba

He’s a British heartthrob who proved his badassery in The Wire and Pacific Rim. Time for him to protect the Earth/Universe in the TARDIS instead of a Jaegar (or what if they combined the two…).

Julie Andrews

Like I said before, a lady Doctor is in order. Plus, Mary Poppins as a time lord? Think of the outfits! Also, her bag matches the TARDIS.

The hills are alive with the sound of the TARDIS.

Rupert Grint

One of the more rumored actors for the next Doctor. He would be goofier than Matt Smith, but that isn’t a terrible thing.

Benedict Cumberbatch

He’s Sherlock, he works with Steven Moffat, so why not recruit him for another Moffat show? Plus, he kind of looks like an alien.


Martin Freeman

See Benedict Cumberbatch minus the alien thing.


Danny Pudi

An American as the Doctor sounds blasphemous but not out of the question. He already plays an avid fan of Inspector Spacetime, a parody of Doctor Who, in Community.

Hugh Laurie

He’s played a doctor before, so he has the experience. Swap out House’s cane for a sonic screwdriver and we got a new smart-ass Doctor.

Brandon Wetherbee

BYT’s own managing editor is well dressed enough to be the next Doctor.

I'm sorry Brandon.

I’m sorry Brandon.

Steven Moffat

Moffat does what he wants. He writes the show. So he made himself the next Doctor. Take that, haters.


Peter Capaldi

He’s the actual favorite for the next Doctor according to The Independent, so I guess that’s important.

Anyone else think he kind of looks like a vampire?
