Then I came across a letter that Richard Ayoade posted on his Facebook wall to the BBC this morning:
As soon as I started to consider the possibility of Ayoade being cast as the 12th Doctor, I realized that I can't think of a better choice. He has the natural oddness, the sense of humour, the sarcasm and the intelligence to pull off an absolute amazing Doctor.Dear BBC,
I am writing to inform you that I am available to take over immediately as the next Doctor. I’ll even bring my own sonic screwdriver (mine actually works).
Looking forward to hearing from you.
So I ask you - take a look at the below petition and sign your name to it if you feel the same way.
