As Doctor Who fans know, Matt Smith is leaving with the Christmas Special. This has led to an extreme amount of speculation as to who will be the next Doctor. It has also led to speculation that this time around, we might actually see a female Doctor.
I have to admit, the idea of the Doctor gender swapping in a regeneration is one that had not occurred to be watching the classic series. I don’t think that it is an issue of chauvinism, just the confusion that would come from the Doctor becoming Susan’s grandmother when he was originally her grandfather. But, the potential for such an occurance has been mentioned.
Naturally, I do have my own thoughts on who should be considered if the producers decide to go this route, some of which have already been bandied about. I will say right now I am not considering any past companions returning as the Doctor, as one site suggested with Billie Piper. I am also leaving out Jenna Louise Coleman, the Doctor’s current companion, as an option, though I can theoretically see how that could happen.
As I mentioned before, Matt Smith announced that he will not be returning as the Doctor after the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Already everyone is speculating who will replace Smith as the Doctor. I would not be surprised if there were even Vegas odds on it. Even I posted a few ideas who I think could possibly move in to the role of the Doctor.
With all of that, there are a few suggestions that have left me wondering if they were just suggesting a long shot, or if one of these long shot ideas could possibly be the one.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
As noted in an earlier post, Matt Smith has announced that he will be moving on from his role as the Doctor in the BBC series Doctor Who. Naturally, the speculation will begin as to who will replace Smith, just as it did with David Tennant announced he was leaving the role a few years before.
Thus, here are a few suggestions I have for the next Doctor.

Just as there are those movies that you desperately want to watch, there are those movies that just make you say, “Eh, I’ll pass.”
These five movies are the ones I’ll pass on this summer.
As anyone who’s read this blog may have figured out, I play a lot of games. I’m not necessarily good at them, but I play them. And, like a lot of people, I have gotten into my fair share of online games. In this case, I don’t mean World of Warcraft or the (sadly) defunct City of Heroes, I mean those annoying Facebook games that you start playing and can’t stop. Either those, or the app games you download to your phone (or, in my case, iPod touch) and play. And, I have had fun with a lot of these games, for a while, until I get bored or I get ticked off. A lot of times, they just tick me off.
Let’s take a little musical journey, one that’s a little bit personal. Granted, I might not remember every concert I’ve seen, but I have been to a few. So, lets start with the earliest one I remember
In honor of the passing of one of Hollywood’s greatest special effects men, Ray harryhausen, I present my list of five of his great creations.
The wonder of music is that the experience often goes beyond the auditory. Listeners often will envision the song they are listening to in their own way. Even with the creation of the music video, that experience still stands, though now, what we envision for a song may be drasticly different from what some random director decided what visuals should go with the song.
And, sadly, there are some great songs that are sidled with videos that are, well, crap.
