Diversity In Doctor Who: 13 Non-White-Males Who’d Be A Great 13th Doctor
We’re in limbo with Doctor Who again. It’s always a strange place to be and the fact the show is in this position every few years doesn’t make it any more comfortable.

Interesting list - I don’t know all the actors on this list owing to how little TV I manage to get around to watching, but the majority of them sound like great picks.

Except Helen Mirren, aside from my natural bias against her - she does nothing for me as an actor or a person, she’s just way too old. Not that I’ve anything against older actors playing the Doctor (Capaldi has been freaking brilliant in the role), but because, unfortunately, it’s a very physically demanding role - given both Capaldi AND the vastly younger Matt Smith injured a knee while filming, you need a younger actor.

My own probably-never-gonna-happen picks would include Emma Watson, Daisy Ridley, Chloe Bennet, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. 

anonymous asked:

If you could choose any actor to play the 13th Doctor, who would it be?

I probably would say Tom Hiddleston. I just picture him as a very gentlemanly and polite person and that’s sort of influenced how I’d see the next Doctor. Picturing the Doctor going from Stupid Apes to rude to childish to semi-grumpy to this almost overly polite individual just makes me laugh. He would be SO flustered with River’s flirting and innuendo, a prim and proper and polite Doctor lol :)


Gay, Black, Female Doctor Who

Gambit:  Mister Remy comin’ at you at last :).  I had a lot of fun with trying to go for a street kid, cavalier kinda swag with him.  I thought a lot about giving him a bigger beard, but then we’d be covering up that pretty face.  Really need to break out of the mold of giving all my guys that hairstyle though…  Oh well :).  Really happy with how his playing card jacket came out and I’m happy with his features, through which I tried to channel a longer, more angled “French” face.

Nicki Minaj:  Yes, I know I turned her into Storm.  I know.  I swear it wasn’t on purpose, though I don’t know if that makes it better or worse.  Much like everyone else, I love her verse on Kanye’s “Monster” and so I drew inspiration from her line, “You can be the king, but watch the Queen conquer.”  And so I made her a queen.  Majestic, curvaceous (can’t lose her famous bod), proud, and killa.  She has a great face that has some actual character to it so I’m happy with how close I came likeness wise.

13th Doctor:  Mrs. Helen Mirren would make a fantastic 13th doctor, and I may be biased, but I think this outfit would be perfect for her in the role :).  I wanted to achieve something like looked like a chic pirate.  An explorer, a detective, a marvel.  She should look capable and rugged but also have a lot of that old school doc lightness and frivolity in her design.  

Gems vs Doctor. I’m confident this would be the initial reaction. then clara bonds with the gems and the doctor sort of bonds with steven and then the doctor teams up with the gems to save steven and clara from warp pads and monsters. for some reason the doctor encounters rinaldo and corrects him on his lizard people theories and shows him a picture of Vastra and Jenny and Strax. pearl asks the doctor about homeworld and he gives some vague ominous response.
