    A non white male middle class British Doctor?

    Moffat famously wrote the hilarious Curse of the Fatal Death, which starred Rowan Atkinson, Richard E Grant, Hugh Grant, Jonathan Pryce and Joanna Lumley. If you're a Who fan and you've never seen this, you should - technically it was Moffat's first Who script!

    One thing that's been fairly constant about The Doctor is that he's always been:
    • White
    • Male
    • Middle-class*
    • British
    • Interestingly his age has been all over the place; I prefer him a bit older than Matt Smith
    *Note that this is just an adjective encompassing mannerisms, accent, dress, and behaviour - I don't mean it to describe an actual class system.

    The middle-class bit might be slightly arguable (Eccleston played him slightly working-class, although the actor himself is pretty middle-class despite his accent).

    So which of these aspects would you be willing to change?



    For me:
    • White - don't care either way. I was hoping Patterson Joseph would get the role before we found out Matt Smith got it.
    • Male - I think changing his gender might be a little too much of a stretch for me.
    • Middle-class - images of Ray Winstone playing The Doctor fill me with joy. Now THAT would be fun! "Put yer traahsers on sunshine; yer nicked! Oh, and I'm The Doctor!"
    • British - I couldn't compromise on that one. I know Batman and Superman are British, Robin Hood's been American and Australian, Bond has been Australian and Irish, and so on and so on. So I know it can happen and sometimes it can work, but I'm still completely against the idea of a non-British Doctor.
