Well, if he can't be Spider-Man, he ought to at least get this billing.
Danny Pudi being the Doctor AND Inspector SpaceTime would be a little bit... I dunno.

Then again, I feel like the BNP would hate it more.

EDIT:
But what kind of cretin would let spiting someone they don't like sway them away from something they DO like.

Richard Ayoade is fun, funny and generally a nice person, I have no idea what you are talking about.

I think an old, black Dr. Who would actually be a hoot. 

Hell, any sort of change from "really white guy" would be nice to see. Having never really watched (other than the very first doctor and a little of the fourth) has there ever been any explanation as to why the doctor never regenerates as someone with the appearence of a woman or another ethnicity?

It seems like Time Lords have some kind of dimorphism, so that might explain the male part, but...

The running joke through most of the transformations is that The Doctor always fears he's become a woman this time, and there may also be hints that he has been before.

That said, the more I think about it the more I would love a Danny Pudi Doctor. He's just right for it.

However, that would make for an American Doctor, which I don't think the world is ready for yet. Even though it would never not be fantastic timing to make The Doctor Indian or of Middle-Eastern decent.

If we could vote on this I'd be all about Paul McGann for the next season. He's damn near perfect for the role, and there are any number of compelling storyline justifications at this juncture.

It will, of course, never happen.

Nah, but I'm still holding out hope he'll at least show up as a guest.  Either in a hush-hush appearance in the Fiftieth Anniversary (unlikely; just catching John Hurt on set in a leather jacket was enough to get the rumor sites to piece together the big twist ending) or later on in the season.  I don't see why all the fiftieth anniversary multiple-Doctors stuff has to be confined to one episode -- especially since it already isn't.

I'd love to see Elba as The Doctor, if only to see which parts of the Doctor Who fandom are crazy racists.

Free ebooks (PDF), including What I Did In My Christmas Holidays, By Sally Sparrow, which was of course later rewritten as Blink.  Worth the 15 minutes it'll take you to read it; I haven't read the rest.

Man I just saw this joke I made and I have to admit, I think a LOT of the Dr. Who fandom wouldn't be racist. At least I think the British part of the fandom would already appreciate Elba as a hell of an actor.

It's cool, man, I don't think anybody thought you actually seriously meant all Doctor Who fans are racist.

But Ted's right too that Elba's casting WOULD bring the racists out of the woodwork, like it did in Thor.

But it won't be Elba.  As Bleeding Cool pointed out, the reason BBC's not likely to go for an established name isn't just that they want us to be surprised, it's that the show's budget keeps getting slashed.  Paying Elba's rate for a half-dozen episodes of Luther every year or two is a pretty far cry from paying him for Doctor Who.

Which isn't to say they WON'T cast a black guy -- just not a black guy who's already famous.

We're not going to see a guy who's been in a Thor movie play the Doctor.  We're just going to have to settle for a guy who played the Doctor being in a Thor movie.

Her idea is something I want to see, just for all the frothing rage it would generate.
