Idris Elba is my ninth choice to play the twelfth doctor because I would really like to see them change it up and make the doctor black. The only reason why I have him in ninth is because the only movies I've seen him act in were obsessed and Prometheus, both where I didn't see a humorous side, at least anything that could be the doctor's humor.
