Dream Casting Thread (S2 Okay)
Posted May 17, 2006 @ 6:57 AM
Ok you just tell people who you want to appear and in what role - whether it be the villian of the week or a new companion or *gasp* a new new new doctor.
I just wanted Anthony Head in something but now I am thinking if DT goes then I want Matthew Macfayden as the new new new doctor.

Since we have CE looking at possibly the Prisoner, how about Patrick McGoohan as a guest villain?

And Jack Davenport would rock, Eegah. He would rock hard.

That said - I hope Billie sticks around for a good while yet.

So much WORD to this... and I remember when you suggested this on the Doc/Rose thread (and it induces the very same reaction... *thud*). Doesn't hurt he can act like mad too. It's almost hard to picture someone else in the part... almost. Richard Armitage is a close second for me, since I've pretty much been obsessed since first seeing North & South (Guh!). Either Rufus or Richard going toe-to-toe with DT? That's almost too much to comprehend.
Hee, a few of us would love to see Rufus Sewell as the Master. He does "simmering evil" so beautifully..

Hmm.. I just clicked on Richard Armitage's link, and saw that he's from Leicester - which reminded me that my cousin went to school with Edward Fidoe (and I rather suspect she was his first snog as a teen - I very vaguely recall a Young Farmer's Dance where he and I sat in a corner drinking cider and watched her work her way around the room) who was in Woof! which, it turns out (because I never saw it, and only ever heard of it from my cousin) also starred Anthony Head and Sarah Smart (who was in Sparkhouse with Richard Armitage). Man, I'm connected ;-)
I had no point here. None whatsoever. Except the absolute confirmation that if I'm connected by just one person to Anthony Head, then a six degrees thread on these boards for English actors would be utterly redundant.

Jack Davenport as the Doctor? not sure how that works for me at the moment -- I always get Steve from Coupling instead of Norrington. Maybe Steven Moffat could give him some of those longwinded rants on cushions or women's bottoms (ooh, "Inferno") hmm, could be fun. (maybe they could get Jeff and his variable Welsh accent in for a guest spot)

Besides, he reminds me *way* too much of Michael Vaughan, the English cricket captain. If he were to carry on any of Peter Davison's props, it'd just be too weird.

Ok villian of the week - I want to see John Cleese!

Possibly the best actress in the world
Oh, she's magical! Only thing is, I'll forever associate her with Queenie. Not that that's a bad thing, mind ;-) "I may have the body of a weak and feeble woman - but I have the heart and stomach of a concrete elephant."

"I certainly will! First I'm going to have a little drinky and then I'm going to execute the whole bally lot of you!"
Good god I love that show. I adore Miranda Richardson and if I had my way, the entire cast of Blackadder would be on the show some way or another and I'd squee endlessly. I don't care how busy Hugh Laurie is! ;) It'd be hilarious to see Rowan on the show, seeing as though he played a version of the ninth doctor for Comic Relief. I'm sure I could see him as a deliciously evil villain.

I had a wishlist in my head that included John Simm and some others, but I'm too distracted now.

I wonder if she was the inspiration for President Laura "Airlock" Roslin?
First I'm going to have a little drinky and then I'm going to execute the whole bally lot of you!"

An all-American TARDIS team? No!
*Horrified agreement with Azalaea*
Edited - I honestly, truly, really, could never get behind an American Doctor Who. Just no. (I thought she rocked as Glory, though.)

I'm with you two! There are some things that are just not negotiable. The Doctor is a bloke and he's played by a Brit (and I'm saying this as an Irish woman!). That's just the way it is. It's always been teddibly, teddibly quintesentially English - even if Eccleston's Doc wasn't as traditonal as the rest of them.*Horrified agreement with Azalaea*

An American Doctor would be the wrongest thing in the world. It would be like recasting Superman as a scally, or Spiderman as Welsh. There are somethings you just don't mess with. Now if Joss Whedon wanted to develop a series where a happy little gang of Americans travel through time, well then, God bless, go to! If he got to write an ep of Doctor Who, I think there would be much squeeage (caveat, any reference to anyone or their TARDIS having a soooooul now would render Whedon Dead To Meh!).

I could see a female doctor, too, but it'd definitely have to be someone from the British Isles.

If he scripted it, we'd probably have to have an entire season where the Doctor moaned about how annoying it was to be regenerated, while having ridiculously violent sex with a dalek.
Back to topic (and mind out of the gutter) I'd love the trend of good looking doctors to be continued, possibly by Julian Rhind Tutt from Green Wing? He's strange enough looking, and ginger!
