In all seriousness Idris Elba as the 12th Doctor would be a great casting choice because he’d kill it and we’d get to find out just exactly how many anglophiles are also gigantic racists
Has anyone mentioned that Paterson Joseph was seriously considered for the role at some point? I think it was the time when Matt Smith eventually got it, because I remember being disappointed. Joseph had good scifi credentials at the time as well, as he’d just done Survivors.
I mention it only because he is also a black man, and I don’t remember there being a lot of racism about it, but then I wasn’t on tumblr at the time. I’m sure there was plenty.
