    Some people were expecting that with Peter Capaldi given one of his previous roles (Malcolm Tucker). I can't quote any of his best lines because I'd have to ban myself.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Bradley also appeared with Whittaker (and David Tennant) in the first season of Broadchurch.

    My vote for a female who would have been Neve Mcintosh, who plays Madam Vastra. It's not like Who fans are familiar with her face when she's not a lizard.

It seems from the teaser that they're going for a Cate Blanchett/Galadriel "otherworldly elf queen" theme, but the Doctor isn't Galadriel; he's Puck.

    In my opinion the trend of making the doctor "pretty" is only at 2, and some may even disagree with that. I did not find 9,10,or 11 attractive at all. Not in a sense that their looks distracted from the performance; they all had a sense of character, just not traditional good looks to me. I wouldn't look at them twice if I saw them on the street. I am fond of 12's looks, but I don't know how well they are received in the general population.

    Thinking back all the way to #1, I don't think I would consider any of them good-looking. Perhaps the closest is #5. The only character that's made me look twice is Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman). But I was a fan of his long before Doctor Who.

    I'm just sorry they didn't make her ginger.

    I thought five was good looking. The same for 9 and 11. Jodie Whittaker seems Hollywood average good looks to me, like 10. Distinctive and memorable, but never odd or quirky.

    I've only seen the promo material and the context is absent. It seems like she's wearing the last doctor's clothes, but she seems like she is more put together than most Doctors after a regeneration. Wouldn't that be funny: "This time, its all right."
