12 White Guys in a Row!

It's disappointing, but the most surprising thing about casting Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor is that he, like Karen Gillan, was in "The Fires of Pompeii." It's not that I think Capaldi will do a bad job, and I think it's nice that they went for an older guy this time around, but a female Doctor or a person of color would have been a welcome change, and could have opened up interesting story avenues, especially in the former case.

But I don't want to be pessimistic, so I came up with this short list of 12 choices for 12th Doctor that would have been even safer than picking Peter Capaldi:
  1. Harry Styles from One Direction
  2. Stephen Moffat
  3. Benedict Cumberbatch
  4. Patrick Stewart
  5. All of One Direction
  6. Daniel Radcliffe
  7. Sir Paul McCartney
  8. David Tennant
  9. Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge
  10. Daniel Craig
  11. Robert Pattinson
  12. Bat Smythe, who is just Matt Smith with a fake moustache
