It's worth noting that about 99% of these aren't going to happen - the Twelfth Doctor will most likely be someone like Matt Smith - a relative unknown with just TV experience. That said, there's a few people on here who do fit the bill quite nicely - so when the Twelfth Doctor is announced (most likely sometime in July or August), don't be surprised if he or she was on one of these lists...
