dream cast: hypothetical alternate universe ‘Doctor Who’

It’s Thursday, and that means it’s usually time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. But this week, to commemorate my visit to London, let’s have a different kind of fun. I know they’ve already picked Matt Smith to replace David Tennant, but let’s pretend they didn’t. Let’s pretend it’s still up in the air who the 11th Doctor will be.

(If you have a suggestion for an 80s TV show or movie we should play with, feel free to email me.)
My dream cast:

The Doctor: Clive Owen
The Master: Michael Sheen

Pick a Doctor, and then it’s open from there. Pick companions, invent a new villain for your favorite actor, and take it from there.

Have fun!

Talkin’ ‘bout regeneration:

    Doctor: Anna Friel

    Companions: Carey Mulligan & Ben Whishaw &/or Harry Lloyd (continuity issues?–they’ll think of something)

    The Master: Stephen Fry

    Fenric: Michael Sheen (bad wolf!)

    Romana: Joanna Lumley

  • The Doctor: Peter Wingfield

    His Companion: Daniel Radcliffe (as ‘Doctor’ Sevateem, Leela’s half-timelord son)

    Rasillon: Terry Jones

    The 11th Doctor has discovered that Leela’s son survived the Time War but is trapped in the Age of Rasillon. In rescuing him he is tasked by Rasillon himself to break the Time Lock and save the Timelords from their own folly.

    Doctor: Jack Davenport

    Companion: Jamie Bell

    I’d love to see Jack Davenport play a stoic, almost Sherlock Holmes-esque Doctor.

  • The Doctor: Eddie Izzard
    The Companion: Dawn French
    The Master: Sir Ian McKellan

    Actually, you could switch any of those actors to any of the roles and I would be happy.
