10. Harry Lloyd
The Doctors do appear to be getting younger, and if this continues to be the case then Harry Lloyd just might have a shot at the role. While hes only a year younger than Matt Smith in real life, he looks a lot younger than his 29 years something which may stand him in good stead when having to marry the Doctors old intellect with his eternal youth. Of course, it would take an actor of considerable prowess to pull this off, and for my money, Lloyd could be just the man most famously last seen getting gold-cauldroned (if youve seen it, youll know what it means) as Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, hes played thugs (see Channel 4s The Game), Shakespeare (the Hollow Crown series) and Denis Thatcher in the past, and taken them all on with great skill. If anything, I think his Doctor might resemble his Thatcher the combination of an old soul in a young body and outrageous British-ness are both prerequisite traits for the Timelord. Lloyd also possesses what seems to be a common role for anyone looking to take on a role in Doctor Who hes been in the show before. What could work for or against him was that this role wasnt a cameo he was a villain in possibly the best two episodes of NuWho, Human Nature and Family of Blood. The man was bloody terrifying as Jeremy Baines/Son of Mine but the problem could be he was perhaps too memorable if he does take the role, well be waiting for the manic eyes to pop out again.
