Amongst all the speculation over the actor who will assume the role of the 12th Doctor my favourite, so far, has been Jared Harris.
I admit that I would like to see an older actor in the role again, something which is unlikely now the programme seems to demand an actor with the 'squee' factor.
However, Jared has shown a great range in the roles he has played and would, I think provide the right combination of gravitas and humour.
He would keep the youthful spirit of the Doctor, in the shell of an older person. He’s weathered, but not worn out, and time and again on Mad Men his character’s quiet, misunderstood sense of humor added an extra twinkle to the show.
