I think that'd make for some fun stories. Not sure within the rules of regeneration if that could happen, maybe the Master does some kinda tampering with the Doctor to make it happen.

    Just random thoughts when washing the dishes a few days ago....
    Id be okay with that. I like Dhawan as a actor.

    And Maxill, to my knowledge, has never regenerated. So they still could get Colin to appear in the future (if they ever fix the The Timeless Children).

    I'm ready to take over if need be. For the Doctor's accent, they can have the choice of my excellent Dick Van Dyke impression from Mary Poppins or James Mason instead!

    Remember, kids. If you cry and throw a loud enough tantrum eventually you'll get your way.

    I expect the victory parades from the "Get Woke Go Broke" crowd to begin any minute.

    My only real disappointment in this news is that I was hoping Jodie could get one series under another writer. I've seen her in enough other stuff to know she COULD have been an amazing Doctor if given better material and a stronger personality.

    Oh well.

    Now the real question is what/who comes next? Will the Beeb play it safe and choose another Chibs-esque writer from their in house stable? Or will they gamble a bit and go for somebody more outside the box? Will we see another female Doctor, another minority of a different stripe, or are we back to safe, white dudes? Do you launch into a new showrunner/Doctor combo immediately, or do you give the show some time to rest and let demand/hype build? So many good questions moving forward.

    Only if the number of disgruntled fans is large enough. Is fan pressure actually the cause here?

    Glad that Chibnall's gone, sad that Jodie's gone. I know it's standard practice (and one I fully understand) for a showrunner to have their Doctor(s), but I love it on the rare occasions when a showrunner gets to work with "someone else's" Doctor. It also helps to solidify continuity (production wise, not narrative wise) between eras -- kind of like how much Moffet's first couple seasons as showrunner drew plenty from RTD's era.

    Pretty much agree. Jodie was perfectly fine, IMO, but I was never that crazy over the altered mood and tempo of that era's episodes.

    Reading the presser, the specials will have a different team than current Who.

    Sounds like she'll get to flex a bit in those 3-4 specials (I say 4 because they are vague on the finale being part of the trilogy or not).

    As far as the next Doctor, there were rumors that the next one was going to show up in a special or an episode that was already shot. But those rumors have died down.

    As it stands now, the betting odds are:

    Frontrunners:
    Olly Alexander 4.5 7/2
    Kris Marshal 6.0 5/1

    Third Favorite:
    Michela Cole 8.0 7/1

    Outside Chance:
    Michael Sheen 11.0 10/1
    Tom Rosenthal 11.0 10/1
    Anne Maxwell Martin 11.0 10/1
    Richard Ayoade 11.0 10/1

    DARK HORSE:
    Maxine Peake 17.0 16/1

    I'm actually pretty fine with anyone on this list. I have a favorite, though. Ayoade ...

    Here's my pick for #14-

    Shazad Latif, Richard Aoyade, Robert Carlyle, Jason Isaacs, Phoebe Waller Bridge, Jo Martin, Adrian Lester,
    Guy Henry, Katie McGrath, Colin Morgan

    Toby Whitehouse of Being Human would be an interesting choice. He has written for the show before.

    Neil Gaiman would be amazing but that feels like a longshot.
