I read in The Register that David Yates (director of the last four Harry Potter films) has been approached to do a Doctor Who movie. I have quite enjoyed the more recent Potter movies and think this could be a good idea. So the question is, who will play the Doctor?
Clearly Matt Smith could be a front runner for the job if he is still around in the role when filming starts. Or this could be a nice way to introduce a new Doctor and follow up the movie with TV serials. Perhaps they can get David Tennant to come back for a reprisal. I think Hugh Grant could be a great Doctor. He did play the Doctor once before (in a Children In Need special).
I really do hope that it will be a Brit in any case. As El Reg says in the article, you could get someone like Robert Downey Jr who did a fairly competent Sherlock Holmes. What about the other Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch?
