He also played Keats in 'Bright Star', very pretty film.
Apparently he's gay.... that might be an interesting step for the Doctor?!
Ah, but where would that leave River Song?

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

What about Luke Pasqualino? Still haven't quite got over him in Skins, and he showed that he can play a pseudo-straight role for laughs in The Three Musketeers recently.

Q is not a great role for him though.

Brilliant in The Hour and the remake of Brideshead Revisited and more recently in London Spy.

I can see Whishaw as the doctor. Complete with a Baker-esque long scarf. And just 'cos the actor may be gay... it's acting. Lots of gay actors play straight and vice versa.

Who is the young guy out of Kinsgsmen and the Eddie the Eagle movie? He'd be good. Or the intense nerdy one in Misfits who played an absolute sod in GOT and the object of Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi's affection in Vicious? He'd be good.


Edited to say :Thank the gods for IMDB. Taron Egerton and Iwan Rheon.

Cheat... just when I actually could have answered the Vicious question without looking it up!

No problem with Whishaw playing the Doctor straight if the script said so, just thought a gay version would be an interesting twist. And anything that put River Song's nose out of joint would be a plus.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

He's unlikely to be available though as he's doing a new BBC series "Cormoran Strike".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cormor...ike_(TV_series)

Um, Wiki seems to throw a bit of a wobbly with the link so here's the info:

"On December 10 2014 it was announced that the Cormoran Strike novel series, written by J.K Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith would be adapted for television by the BBC, for broadcast on BBC One, beginning with The Cuckoo’s Calling. Rowling will collaborate on the project, and it is believed she will contribute to the scripts. Two years later, it was confirmed that the series will total seven episodes of sixty minutes, with shooting to begin in London in the autumn of 2016.

Sarah Phelps, who adapted Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy for television, will adapt The Cuckoo’s Calling, while Ben Richards will adapt The Silkworm. As of January 2017, no writer has been confirmed for Career of Evil.

In late 2016 it was announced that Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger would lead the cast as Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, respectively. In early 2017 it was announced that Logan Kerr would play Robin’s fiancé, Matthew."

Seriously, Medea, how do you know all this stuff??

He would certainly make a very good Cormoran, I must say! He's flipping gorgeous.. and the right side of grumpy too.

Didn't know they're making the books into a series. Altho', I do have a mental picture of Cormoran as a very large muscle type ex-army bloke, but then what do I know

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

As they say Google is your friend. Simply googled Tom Burke, checked his Wiki page to see what he's currently doing and then hopped over to the Cormoran Strike Wiki page.

I've not even heard of the books so you're ahead of me on that.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

And yet again I've been 'forced' to buy books mentioned by someone on EF.... please stop, I'm running out of bookshelves!

Got all three of the Cormoran Strike books for a little over ten euros (including postage) from Amazon France... bargain.

Some of my older ones are in storage too, but that hasn't stopped me buying new ones at the drop of a hat! Can't decide if Amazon is a blessing or a curse... my idea of heaven would be the Library (without the nasties and that irritating River Song of course)!

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

No, but would probably be more expensive than a paperback copy.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

Hate it on Kindle when one book by a writer is offered cheaply, but then the next book is suddenly rather expensive

I've read two of Cormoran Strike books, have yet to read the third.

A rummage around second hand book stores usually does the trick..

True but I don't have room for all the books I just have once, and I have many bookshelves including a five ft high one over the stairs accessible only by tall OH or ladder...I can't be getting duplicates. A cow will be had.

I love a good second-hand rummage.
That sounds a lot filthier than intended.

I'm ploughing through a lot of free Bookbub stuff at the mo. Self publishing can be a wonderful thing but it can lead to sone dreadfully written tripe too...

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert 2013)

Oh dear, looking more and more like they might put a woman in the role.

"The current bookmakers' favourite to take over the Tardis is Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton, and Harewood said she would be a good choice.

"She's extraordinary anyway so I think she'd be great," Harewood said. "It would be a very different Doctor and maybe that's what it needs."

The actor said it was good that four of the five current favourites are women - with Maxine Peake, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Olivia Colman also tipped."

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-39093558

Why must we have something "different"? The series has done quite well sticking to the tried and true.

If this happens I'll no longer be watching, sorry. Because it won't be Doctor Who any more.
