This is my territory of knowledge, so no one make article about this! Okay then, a few days ago the BBC is planning to make a Doctor Who movie, and directed by four time Harry Potter director, David Yates. Also the Movie is a reboot to the 50 year old franchise, so looking on the Webz  (Yes Webz!) I saw that IGN.com has already compiled a list of actors and I agree with entire list, and her we go! 
 
Micheal Fassbender -He was the best part of First Class, and looks good in a scarf
Martin Freeman- The upcoming Bilbo Baggins, and he knows Steven Moffat from Sherlock
Gary Oldman - He to me is one those actors that puts his heart in his role, and he worked with Yates before in HP Franchise
Ewan McGreggor - Obi Freakin' Kanobi, he could had some trainspotting in there as well
James McAvoy - Charles Xavier to Mr. Tumnas, he has variety and he killed it in Wanted.
Liam Nessian - Ra's Al Gual, Aslan, and Zues. Lian can go to Drama to Action in a smooth transition.
Bil Nighy - He is one my top choices to be the Doctor, if they decide to go in a older doctor direction, and he has been in the Harry Potter movies and Doctor Who!
Eddis Izzard - One of the funniest british comedians, that I think. if they go to more funny
Daniel-Day Lewis - There will be blood, Gang of New York, he as a great IMDB Page 
'Bonus!' Chris Harwick- the Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick is one of my favorite people on TV, and he is a big Doctor who fan, he's perfect!

About the reboot I have one question. Why ? With Doctor Who it's programmed in a way that each time a new Doctor comes around it is a reboot. Having a big budget movie reboot seems really pointless, also I have never heard David Yates, so you know thats bad. But for a new Doctor I got a couple of suggestions. James McAvoy- He was a really fun Xavier in First Class and seeing him training the first X-Men just seemed perfect to me. Hugh Laurie- Befire anybody says anything like "He only does serious stuff like House." You are wrong, back in the 80's he was in a bunch of Blackadders and that is comedy, so there. Robert Pattinson- Before anybody says anything in interviews he seems like a really chipper fellow and I would do anything to see him in a more upbeat role.

If they want someone like the ninth doctor, Liam Neeson or Fassbender would work.

If they want someone like the tenth or eleventh, i vote for Nathan Fillion, so he would be known for two sci-fi series.

Benedict Cumberbatch. Seriously anybody whose seen Sherlock should know how perfect he is for the role of The Doctor. He would be my number one pic once Matt Smith moves on.
