Since it was announced that Matt Smith was stepping down as Doctor Who and that a new Doctor Who would be cast in his place, a whole host of names and ideas have been flying around. One of the more controversial suggestions is that Doctor Who should be a woman, which did not go down too well with some of the fans.
However, those fans will be pleased to learn, that it looks like the next Doctor Who will in fact be a man, as Peter Capaldi has become the favourite to take over the role. The Thick Of It actor is a self-confessed Doctor Who fan and will become the oldest Doctor Who for some time.
With that said, showrunner Steven Moffat admitted that they were not against casting an older Doctor Who, "We've never not considered an older Doctor. It is completely on all the lists we make - there are absolutely older Doctors," said Moffat.
This has led to a huge surge in bets on Peter Capaldi becoming the new Doctor Who, with him now becoming the favourite for the role. Other names who have been linked to the role of the new Doctor Who, include Rory Kinnear, Ben Daniels, David Harewood, Daniel Rigby and Damien Molony.
