Peter Capaldi wants Frances de la Tour to be the next ‘Doctor Who’
Honestly, this would be a very exciting casting choice.
Speaking to The Mirror, Capaldi said, “I would like Frances de la Tour to be first female Doctor.” This is one of the most unexpected casting choices we’ve heard so far, but after some consideration, we’re definitely onboard.
Doctor Who fans are most likely to know Frances de la Tour as Madame Maxime from the fourth Harry Potter movie, but her primary career is as a stage actor. She’s won a Tony and three Olivier Awards, and has played an incredibly wide range of roles since she came to prominence in the 1970s sitcom Rising Damp. She was even considered for Doctor Who in the 1980s, before the BBC decided to stick to tradition and cast Sylvester McCoy as a male version of the character.
At 72, she’d be the oldest actor to take on the role. But she’d certainly shake things up, and maybe that’s what the show needs.
