Well, sheâ€™s actually very Doctor for the next year and a half, but with todayâ€™s shock announcement that both she and current showrunner Chris Chibnall will be departing Doctor Who by the end of 2022, weâ€™ve come to the time-honored tradition of dreaming buck wild over who could replace her (while being completely ignorant of how the BBC, most importantly its budget, actually works).Ever since the news broke this morning, weâ€™ve asked editors and writers at io9 and Gizmodo to come up with their own hopes and dreams for the 14th Doctor, whether theyâ€™re Doctor Who diehards (me, Jill Pantozzi) or Whovian neophytes (pretty much the rest of the staff, itâ€™s fine, thereâ€™s too much TV to watch anyway).â€œOh that Loki, itâ€™s just like Doctor Who but Marvel, innit,â€ people whoâ€™ve never seen a second of Doctor Who in their lives said as Tom Hiddleston and his many multiversal selves jaunted across Disney+ for a month and half?
But you know how youâ€™d make Loki actually feel a little more Doctor Who.Turns out Star Wars is chock full of potential Doctor Who stars, and thanks to Attack the Block, Boyega has the bonus of a) knowing Jodie Whittaker well, and b) being very good at running around British council estates to avoid being killed by aliens?Speaking of Doctor Who guest stars as the Doctor, imagine this twist: after everything the 13th Doctor and Dhawanâ€™s Master went through with each other during season 12, what if, after his seeming demise on Gallifrey, as the Doctor regenerates, she thinks of her long-time frenemy and finds herself regenerating into his likeness.I canâ€™t tell which version of Judi Dench Iâ€™d want in the TARDIS more, something akin to her time as M in the Bond franchise, or just like Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Judi Dench.Look, I just want justice for the fact that Henwick never got to be the true Iron Fist we wanted on Netflixâ€™s up-and-down Marvel adaptation, nor did she get to return as X-Wing ace Jess Pava after The Force Awakens.
Who do you want to be Doctor Whoâ€™s 14th Doctor
