There have been many iconic characters on television over the years but there are not many who are quite as famous and memorable as the fantastic British character Doctor Who, who has been played by a number of different actors over the years. When one Doctor Who star decides to leave the show, the character then regenerates with a new star playing the lead role.
Actor Peter Capaldi plays the current Doctor Who and he has been joined on the series by Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, in a few episodes. With many people expecting Peter to step down from the role in the near future, Maisie has stated that she believes Idris Elba would be a fantastic replacement.
Williams was chatting to the London Evening Standard, when she told them, "I think a black doctor would be incredible. I'm all for Idris Elba." With Idris becoming ever popular though, he may well be too busy to take on the role, so Maisie would then be keen for a woman to take on the role, "I think a female doctor would be incredible. If (Idris can't do it) I'll take it for the team and do it!"
It seems that Idris Elba has become a very in demand star these days, with many fans calling for the Luther actor to become the first black James Bond, should Daniel Craig step down from the role as expected. We think he would do a fantastic job as either character, or both, now how awesome would that be?
Which actor would you like to see playing the next Doctor Who?
