The search for the next, i.e. 13th Doctor is on! Peter Capaldi has chosen to leave Doctor Who (2005) after the tenth series. He leaves much too early, having had an excellent stint as the 12th Doctor. Now it's time to speculate about who's going to be the lucky 13th!
The Doctor acts as carer and healer of the universe. He is an alien, but he possesses and defines humanity in the most terrifying of circumstances. An eccentric dress sense, an incredibly intelligent if rather scattered brain, loads of heart (two, fully functioning ones, in fact) and a repeated tendency to run, more or less sums up the job description of The Doctor. Nowhere is he limited by appearance, other than a tendency to look rather humanoid, by factors such as gender.
Essie Davis plays lady detective The Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher in the smart, sassy, charming and delightful series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Set in the 1920s, Miss Phryne Fisher is witty, highly intelligent, unafraid, has great instincts, is extremely tolerant and humane, can run in heels, is sensitive and undaunted by anything when it comes to solving a case. Essie Davis makes you laugh, cry and delight in Miss Fisher's antics as she plays the character with aplomb. A hit show in its own right, it nevertheless serves as an excellent audition piece for The Doctor. Few actors will be able to inhabit the role of the Time Lord as seamlessly as her.
