The 7th season of Dr. Who just began and I could not be more excited. I love this show. If you haven’t seen it then I’m going to have to ask you to crawl out from under that rock you’ve been living under and go find a television. This is the very definition of must see TV!

I have heard rumors though (don’t worry, no spoilers here). The rumor is that this is Matt Smith’s last season, which means it’s time to find the next Doctor. So who’s it gonna be? Below are my top 5 potential Doctors in no particular order:

Henry Ian Cusick

You may know him as Desmond Hume from Lost. I am just about finished with my 2 month-long Lost marathon and I gotta tell ya, it’s driving me crazy! I can’t wait to be free from The Island. I am however, going to miss my favorite character: Desmond. He is funny and brilliant with a gorgeous Scottish accent and a fantastic smile. All these things make for a great Doctor in my mind.

James McAvoy

Ok ok, I know that James is far to big an actor to ever want to become Dr. Who, but he would be so amazing! If you’ve seen any of his work you know what a brilliant actor he is. If you’ve seen any of his late night interviews you know how hysterical and charming he is. Seriously, YouTube James McAvoy on Craig Ferguson. They are the funniest interviews I’ve ever seen.

James and/or Oliver Phelps

You would know them as the Weasley twins from the Harry Potter series. They are obviously hilarious and so clever. I would love to see them (or at least one of them) in another role. The Doctor has always wanted to be a Ginger and I think there is no better ginger choice than a Weasley.

Michael Sheen

Sheen is one of my very favorite British actors. He’s not very big in the states yet but you would recognize him as Wesley from 30 Rock, or for you tweenies, Aro from Twilight. He is the closest you can get to the perfect Doctor without bringing back the legendary David Tenant.

On second thought, just bring David back!

Who would you like to see as the next Doctor Who?
