I always wanted a female Doctor for Doctor Who. Matt Smith is signed on for one more season but after that there's talks of who is going to be the 12th Doctor. The rumor mill says they are thinking of making the Doctor a female for once.

So this would be a huge thing in Doctor Who history because there has never been a female Doctor. We know that he could regenerate as a female, so why not? Not sure why it's even taken this long but whatever.

Anyway, how cool would it be to see her as the first female Doctor, the 12th reincarnation! Since I'm a huge fan of her and the fandom, I think it would be awesome. I dunno if she's even a fan of the show or if she would even ever do a TV Show. They film in England and she goes to school in the states so I doubt she would do it but it would be nice to see. I can dream. I think she would make an excellent Doctor. She would need a gang though, not just a companion. Cause the Doctor has gangs now, gangs are cool.

I know Matt Smith is only signed for another year but I haven't heard of him wanting to step down. I think it's quite possible that he'll stay on for awhile longer. The only problem I'd have with Emma being the Doctor is she'd be pretty young for the role. To date Peter Davison and Matt Smith have been the youngest Doctors and they were around 27 years old when they started the role. It's not inconceivable there could be a younger incarnation but I don't see the producers heading in that direction. It would be nice to have a female doctor but I don't think it will happen for two reasons. One, I think a male doctor has been ingrained in the viewer for over 50 years (if you go back to classic who) and departing from that image would be tough. The second is due to his twelfth regeneration, time lords only have thirteen regenerations so making the penultimate doctor a female doctor seems less likely to me as the Doctor's life is winding down.

Mere speculation of course, anything's possible and it would be cool for Emma to star as the Doctor, but I think if an actress were cast as the Doctor it would be someone older.

If Matt Smith stays on for another 2 years not counting this year, that would make it another 3 years before we see the 12th Doctor. Emma would be what? 25? That's not too bad. I see what your saying but for me I think it would be even better if the Doctor turned out female. Here's the thing, the 13 lives scenario is cannon but it's also up for debate. Russel T. Davies said he wouldn't change it but there's talk from the other writers so anything is possible. If Doctor Who continues to be successful, I don't know if it will just end on 13 lives. It might and part of me kinda hopes it does so we don't taint the Doctor but the other part of me feels like it should be more because the new series hasn't seen great technology in terms of special effects yet.

I highly doubt they would bring back the Time Lords not after the last time that happened. Anything is possible though I suppose. Anything through good writing which the show has. If she can't be the Doctor, then maybe set her on as a companion perhaps? At the very least it would be cool to see her guest star on it.

I dunno, I just would love to see her on Doctor Who some how. If she's a companion maybe she can be a bit like a modern version of Sarah Jane.

Yes, this would be an excellent move. I hope it happens!

I wonder what kind of companion she'd be? She can play anything really but it would be cool to see her like Sarah Jane or even Donna. A bit of Rose in there too. lol The ultimate companion!

Can you imagine the character of the Doctor, with Emmas body and face, running around falling in love with Rose or River Song? I think it would be super weird. :lostit:

LOL Oh man you're right Ling! River! hahaha! Oh I wonder how River would take that? I actually met Alex Kingston and I remember someone had asked her about a homosexual relation if the Doctor ever was female and she was down for it. XD She's so open minded and just such a lovely woman. Oh! Another thought! Doctor Emma and Captain Jack!!! hahaha! I would love to see that pairing!

The Doctor really can be male or female. I love the way they set that up. XD

She would do good in any roles that ome her way. I think what helped her get noticed is the fact she is and always will be the Hermione Granger we all got to know. However it would be cool to see what other roles make it her way down the road.


Emma Watson is the British Sun Shine!!! :excited:

I think Emma would definitely fit for this role.  Since she is a smart, bright, talented, and intelligent actor.  :)

Maybe that should be a reason against it^^

 

They could make a film like Dr. Quinn to let her play an doctor. Or some movie like Outbreak - i loved this film.

I guess people don't like talking about Emma's success.  They just want her to remain the same actress as she usually is, picking the same small roles and attending the same events.  tsk tsk.

How did we go from Doctor Who to medical doctors?

 

 

I certainly don't want her to keep picking the same roles, but I also don't know I'd want her to pick Doctor Who if the opportunity ever arose. Then she would be stuck in the same role again for a while. That was a problem with her playing Hermione in HP. With the length of filming, she never really had the opportunity to do other projects, and it would have been interesting to see her do other things in her younger years.

 

Maybe she could be a Doctor Who villain.

If I understand her right, she is looking for roles giving her a feeling of "comfort". So this will be difficult, because

 

- Emma considers herself not as "sexy" (so no Bond-girl, no sexy villain or something of this kind)

- Emma is not a "bad person" (so no villain, normal or super-)

- Emma is a intelligent person (so no dumb girl or wife, letting herself down by a man)

 

and so on....

 

I still think the best for her would be a good english comedy with a brilliant british cast.

I don't think our current Emma is a comedian. She's too streamlined, or too well put-together for that. IMO without the ability to cast yourself as a a bit bumbling you lack the trait of a comedian. Of course she could simply play someone sharp-tongued and sarcastic, but that gets stale quickly. BTW, judging from her tweets, Evanna Lynch could be great in a comedy role.

 

I do think "villainous" roles would serve her well, as long as it's simply about being self-serving and calculating. She can do that, as she's going to prove in Bling Ring.

Didn't I mention 'villains'? I wasn't only talking about bitchy high school girls. Any complex character with a darker side, I think she could sink her teeth into that.

 

Also all kinds of characters pulled out of literary fiction. I think she can do well if she has a good idea of what the character is like. That's the Hermione part in her.
