Morrisey will appear in the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special, and Radio Times hints he may be the next Doctor, while rumor sites have the BBC confirming Paterson Joseph will be the next Doctor.

I’ve heard the Paterson Joseph rumor floating around for the last couple of months (we even talk about it on a recent Major Spoilers Podcast), and I think he might bring a different take to the traveling Time Lord.

    For some reason, David Morrisey seems like too little of an appearance change for a typical Doctor regeneration. I’m not saying he looks like David Tennant. I’m just saying the age, body type, facial structure, hair aren’t the usual departures we usually get.

    Obviously, Paterson Joseph would be the biggest divergence of appearance since Hartnell regenerated into Troughton. It would definitely be an interesting take to see how his Doctor could just talk his way into taking charge during adventures set in the past.

    Not knowing either actor’s work, I can’t really comment on which would be a better choice.

    Go find Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere on DVD to check out some of Paterson Joseph’s work. I think he’d make a great Doctor.

    If the BBC announces that Morrisey’s assistant is a female, spectacles-wearing martian who doesn’t know that Earth is a planet and will use the Tardis to do her clothes shopping…then I’m done with Doctor Who.
