Ken Dodd.

#5

Peter Cook would have been awesome but just to appease the tabloids you have to add Joanna Lumley, strangely I think she’s been touted more than anyone else.


#6

Edward Tudor-Pole. I mean he practically was playing the Doctor when he hosted The Crystal Maze.


#7

Bill Nighy (who turned it down)
Idris Elba
Michael Caine
Brendan Gleeson or Domhnaill Gleeson ( very different actors but both have benefit of being ginger)


#8

John Cleese

Graham Chapman

Peter Sellers


#9

Vinnie Jones


#10

Grace Jones


#11

William Shatner


#12

Richard O’Toole.

Seriously.


#13

Dylan Moran.


#14

When was that? Which incarnation?


#15

Google says:

British actor Bill Nighy revealed in an interview with U.K. paper The Express that he was approached to play the Doctor, though he remained tight-lipped on when the offer actually came.

“I will say that I was approached,” the 63-year-old said. “But I didn’t want to be the Doctor.”


#16

Peter O’Toole - Dark, dangerous and charming.


#17

This thread reminded me of this:


#18

He always gave the impression that he wasn’t of this earth anyway. :smile:


#19

He would have been brilliant.

A misanthropic Irish Doctor. I can’t see a downside.


#20

If I’d got his name right. :blush:
