"I think it should be a woman. I think it should be a girl, it's something different. He's always been a guy. Let's try something different. Let's see if it works. If it doesn't, you can always regenerate. I did a panel (at San Diego Comic-Con) and someone shouted out, 'Yeah, but there's only allowed to be 12 regenerations'. You know what? It's television and if it's selling and it's working, they'll find a way to make 15 regenerations."Barrowman has clearly given the subject plenty of thought, and he also offered his opinions on the type of actress who he feels should be given a chance in the role.
"It's a pity because someone like Alex Kingston would have been great to be a female Doctor. She's been so strong with River. They could make that kind of take a backseat and she becomes somebody else. Who knows? I don't want to say who I think should play it because that's not my kind of thing. I don't think it should be a Hollywood A-lister. I think it should be somebody completely random, new and fresh. Let's put a girl who's kind of real - a normal-looking girl. Not somebody who looks like she throws up into a bucket every three minutes. Someone who looks like a normal girl."Watch the interview in full below, and let us know what you think. Is Barrowman right in saying it's time to take the show in a fresh direction?
