mmmm…. Sue Perkins and Joanna Lumley.
~doing requests super slow whoo
first up is frizzly pops for eva!! who is the actual captain of this magical ship
Miss Frizzle and Mary Poppins, Lady Time Lords.
I ship it to the moon.
Today in Things I Didn’t Know I Wanted…
Yes! Best Time Lords!
I love Liz curled up there on Ms. Frizzle <3 And her dress!
Lady time lords!
Because I would love a be-gowned Doctor, and I’m pretty sure he’s a timelord already.
Editor’s Note: Our second Genderqueer Time Lord entry (I count Tilda as the first, really) and I’ll bet his sonic screwdriver would be craaaaaaaaaaazylooking. It would also be nice to have Alan, an extremely sexualized performer, portray an utterly non-sexual being without losing his eccentric take on beauty.
Because who can argue with that? Also, she’d pick up Harkness and Hart for companions, because the cloying companions are getting old, and she needs someone pretty rough and tumble to keep up with her.
A lot of space and time would bear bullet holes though…..
She’d truly be an amazing Doctor. In her time on being human she showed just how much of a serious dramatic actor she can be, but at the same time she had these little bursts of hilarious madness that are such an interesting part of the doctor’s character.
For her companion, I’d really love to see Lily Loveless take on the role. She’s great at playing anxious and scared, but also truly amazing at acting as a character who’s really brave and strongwilled and confident.
I mean let’s face it, she’s already got the mad dress sense down. She’s also witty and clever and a great actress.
Most Exasperated Doctor Ever.
She would make such a BAMF Time Lady.
editor: Helen Mirren says it’s time Doctor Who was a woman.
The legendary actress, 66, told us: “I would like to play the new female Doctor Who. I don’t want to just be his sidekick.”
That’d be worth a watch.

She wants it….
Oh please let her. Please oh please.
Helen Mirren as ‘The Doctor’? Maybe…
But who I’d really love to see as The Doctor is Tamsin Greig.
She’s done quite a bit of comedy in her time, so she ought to be able to pull off the appropriate level of quirkiness. But she has also had her share of more serious roles on screen and stage, so the serious side of The Doctor should also come through.
I suppose it depends quite a bit on how one sees The Doctor evolving in their next regeneration. Does ‘The Doctor’ become harder and more serious and cynical about the world (I could see Mirren doing this well), or more optimistic about the universe, rediscovering their sense of mirth. (Greig would be great for this I think.)
Reblogging for this reply!
She’d wear riding outfits and be amazingly sassy! I think she’d pull back on the quirkiness of 11 and be a more… mature and perhaps nurturing kind of Doctor, with a side of a very wicked sense of humor (if Emma’s stories of being roommates with Stephen Fry is anything to go by). I’m not sure how that would work in his character trajectory, but I’d love to see it.
I had a conversation the other day with my friend (also a huge Whovian) about how neat it would be to see a female Doctor. She agreed completely, but we found ourselves wondering, “Who could play the Doctor?”
Without thinking about it, I suggested Freema Agyeman. Why? Because she’s awesome, obviously. She played Martha, and got that role by playing another character. Colin Baker got the role of the 6th Doctor by playing a Time Lord who shot Peter Davison, so why not have an actress who played a minor character, who then played a companion? It sounds wonderfully recursive and just like Doctor Who casting to me!
Freema Agyeman: Because it’s just wibbly-wobbly enough to work.
