So the news this weekend that Matt Smith will leave Doctor Who at the end of 2013 means that the rumour mill will soon start for the casting of the next Doctor. David Tennant was a brillant Doctor and a touch act to follow and Matt Smith certainly did a good job in filling his boots. He was the youngest ever Doctor and his bow tie wearing quirky Doctor continued to engage Doctor Who fans as well as bring in new ones. He was a relatively unknown actor, compared to his recent predecessors who were all well established actors. Will his replacement have the same background as him, or is it time to bring in another famous face?
There has also been previous discussions that a female should step into this iconic role, it would certainly add an interesting dynamic to the show.
Who would you like to see as the next Doctor?
