With the news of Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who at the end of the next season hitting this week, folks have been trying to figure out who the next Doctor will be. I don't try to figure it out because I've never been even close to right and from what I can tell, no one else has either.
But as Capaldi's time in the Tardis comes to a close… so does showrunner Steve Moffat's tenure. But before they go… I want to make an open plea to him.
As you have brought us many great episodes of Doctor Who over the years, I hope there is one thing you can do in your final season. Have Craig Ferguson guest star on an episode. The former Late Night host was a constant advocate for Doctor Who while his series was on, having a few recognizable guests like David Tennant.
He even hosted the Doctor Who panel at the San Diego Comic Con.
The man has to be one of the biggest Whovians out there. But before you wave it off, thinking me a crazy American with no say in the classic British sci-fi or leaving it for Chris Chibnall to deal with. I'll have you know I'm British on my mom's side… she was born in Gloucester… and there is the Dreamboys connection to address.
In the 80's, Peter Capaldi and Craig Feguson were in a punk band called The Dreamboys.
How can you pass up THAT level of nostalgia? The Doctor is known for taking folks that helped him on one trip in the Tardis to say thank you. Ferguson did a lot to help promote the series where other American Late Night shows did nothing. Let two old friends take a trip together in that amazing blue box.
