Matt Smith is departing and Peter Capaldi will be the 12th Doctor but was he BBC's initial choice for the next incarnation of the Doctor. Doctor Who script writer Neil Gaiman says a black actor was offered the part but turned it down.
Idris Elba wouldve made one BADASS Doctor imo.
he would have been great, but i'd imagine he's pretty busy these days. Chiwetel Ejiofor would have been a good choice as well. he's done a few quirky roles, he would have made an interesting Doctor. still, i can't wait to see Capaldi's version.
