The Next Doctor Who

It's sad to hear that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who at Christmas. It's sad because I'd really liked to have seen him perform under another show runner's vision for the show. Steven Moffat's time is long overdue and Capaldi's been saddled with some really crappy stories, despite initially having a stonkingly good debut season (well, right up until that two-part finale that had to be one of the worst Doctor Who stories ever)

But we have to look to the future now, which means it's time to play everyone's favourite guessing game - who will be the next Doctor Who?

Here's my top 5 personal choices of actors to enter the TARDIS based on my fondness for these actors, their suitability for the role as I see and my 30 or so years of obsessive Who fandom.
