Dr. Who Movie Starring Who??

| Filed under: AnglophiliaJohnny Depp


Try not to geek out because it remains unconfirmed, but there is talk of a Doctor Who movie being made…

And Johnny Depp playing the lead!

One website has quoted the former showrunner of the successful BBC series saying that Johnny is secured for the role and that the Doctor Who film will be released in 2012. (The article was later removed from the site, probably because the guy wasn't supposed to say anything.)

Part of us hopes it's true for all you fans, but then we have to wonder how he is going to fit this in with production of the next Pirates all but around the corner.

We're thinking this is false, but hey, there is always hope!

Would U want to see Johnny play the good Doc. Who?

    For the love of god, I wish he would get hit by a bus…I can take no more of that stupid smirk!!!

  2. 2

    Johnny tried to give BBD a handjob in Aspen one time, that boy loves dick.

  3. 3

    there is no way that the bbc will allow and american to play doctor who. so fuck that!

  4. 4

    NO!!!!!!!!!!! First of all, the fans do NOT want a film!!! And secondly, if there was one, it should NOT be American. I have nothing against America, but this is a British institution!

  5. 5

    yes please =D
    this better be true! I would DEF see the movie!

  6. 6

    There should be no movie.
    And, no offence to Mr. Depp (I am a big fan of his).. Matt Smith should play Doctor Who if there would be a movie. But, there shouldn't be. I am a huge Doctor Who fan, and other fans would agree with me.

  7. 7

    I'll start. WHAT THE FUCK??? Matt Smith is suddenly AWESOME now. I liked him already.

  8. 8

    NOOOOO!!! I love you Johnny, but DAVID TENNANT needs to play the Doctor if they make a movie!!!!

  9. 9

    No! No! No! Bloody hell, No!

  10. 10

    oh god
    i nearly fainted and wee'd my pants at the same time

    please make it true!!!!!

  11. 11

    NO! I love Johnny Depp- he's awesome and sexy, BUT, he's NOT The Doctor. That requires an actor with a natural befuddled brilliance that isn't Johnny. Also, The Doctor has a British accent, and it's pointed out jokingly in the series occasionaly - it just wouldn't feel right to stray so far away. I had high hopes for this new Doctor on the tele, and he's ok, but I'm not adamant it's he who plays The Doctor in a movie- but I think it needs to be an unknown or not over-the-top famous fella who does Who!

    Re: Big Black Dick – who the heck is BBD? All I can conjure up is Bell Biv Devoe! Did you mean he was after the whole gang? ha ;-) Doesn't matter anyway. Doctor Who's sexuality is slightly ambiguous anyway.

  13. 13

    Can honestly say that I didn't like Matt Smith when he first started but he is slowly growing on me so it should either be him OR the role should be given to the man who made the Doctor Famous for this generation: David Tennant (My personal favorite Doctor =)). No offense to Johnny Depp but it should definitely at least be given to a U.K. actor since every person that has portrayed the doctor on T.V. has been from the U.K. that legacy should NOT be lost just because it is going to the big screen.

    'Part of us hopes it's true for all you fans'

    Speak for yourself. I like Johnny and all, but I'm loving Matt.

  16. 16

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

  17. 17

    No! I'm American and even I have to say that as a fan I don't want a film much less an American take on it. Worst yet I would die if I went to school and heard all the dumb valley girls around me talking about it.

  18. 18

    No no no, awful idea.

  19. 19

    If this happened it would mean the end of Doctor Who. The Doctor only has 12 lives, right? Matt Smith is number 11, but they'd have to kill him to make room for Depp, and presuming Depp wouldn't want to stick around and make a series, they wouldn't be able to bring in another actor to make more episodes. I suppose they could always change the rules.

  20. 20

    An American playing Dr. Who? That would be like an Italian guy playing Captain America! HELLZ NO

  21. 21

    For the love of the Whoniverse. NO JOHNNY!
    There's no way the fans would have him be the doctor, it wouldn't be right.

  22. 22

    You can't just throw anyone into the role of Doctor Who, it would completely the history and story of the character. It's a popular and iconic British TV program, why not leave it at that.

  23. 23

    Im British and im all for this!
    By all means bring back Tennant (he's still in Rose's parallel universe) but make Depp a new doctor - perhaps one from the future? (That was Matt doesn't need to resign just yet)
    Hes perfect for the part - and he can pull of a british accent so no probs there!

  24. 24

    Hm, well I thought they'd get David Tennant for it, since he is Dr. Who on the show, which by the way is an interesting show.

  25. 25

    Although, Depp is a good actor too :]

  26. 26

    matt is now the dr on tv, and absolutely great…………but, for the movies, only david tennant can be the dr…………HE IS THE DOCTOR. and, he's got a "fightin hand" love david love david love david……pleaaaaaaaaaase make david the movie dr

  27. 27

    I neglected to mention the Doctor NOT being British being a deal killer. I nominate Alexis Denisof. What am I even talking about? Matt Smith is the Doctor. I miss Dave too. No movie!

  28. Alpha says – reply to this


    ahahahh this is a big fake…doctor who stays in britain with matt smith and bbc. stop.

  29. 29

    That would be terrible!!! I totally agree with jessicaak. Matt Smith IS the Doctor. Why replace him with someone who has nothing to do with the series? As a huge Doctor Who fan, I was sorta horrified when I read this.

  30. 30

    no. just no.

  31. 31


  32. 32

    The Doctor must be British!

  33. 33

    Dont get me wrong I love Johnny BUT the best person to play The AWSOME Doctor Who is… WELL DOCTOR WHO!!! as in DAVID T………… Come on BBC get on that.

  34. 34

    As a Who fan, I'm pretty sure I can safely speak for all of us when I say that this would be a terrible idea and we are all praying that it is just a vicious rumor. We're all glad RTD has left the series and are hoping he's really left it and will no longer destroy it. Leave it to Moffat now and let Smith have his time. No to Johnny Depp or any big Hollywood actor playing the Doctor. NO. The Doctor should always be played by a Brit. ALWAYS. I'm American and I never want to see anyone who isn't British take on that role.

  35. Feste says – reply to this


    Absolutely not. Matt Smith is the doctor now, and he's doing an excellent job! It doesn't make sense to put someone else (particularly an american) in the role if you already have a more-than-capable doctor in the canon tv version! It would only make sense if they were already planning a regeneration (which would make me sad :( ). Besides, I doubt Depp would stay on for the show if given the role.

    To be brief: Like Depp, but NO.

  36. 36

    Johnny Depp is awesome…but not as The Doctor. I think this story is crap, though. No way they'd have an American play the iconic role.

  37. 37

    as much as I love Johnny, he cannot play the Doctor. It would HAVE to be Matt Smith. Or a previous actor who has played the doctor before, such as David Tennant. I just don't see this movie doing so well if the Doctor is played by him. Not that I doubt his ability to pull off the role, I just know a lot of die hard fans will not be pleased at all. Unless Deep intends to be the next Doctor in a few years when Matt leaves the show.

  38. 38

    It's Doctor …
    Not Dr.
    Not Doc.
    Always only Doctor.

  39. 39

    Absolutely not. I love johnny depp but if he plays doctor who i will be pissed. not only should Americans (me included) not TOUCH doctor who, but the series is perfect, and STILL ON TV. i really really hope this isn't trueeeeeee.

  40. 40

    That would be a total flop. Out of all the REAL Doctor Who actor's why the hell would they pick him?

  41. 41

    Johnny's a big fan of Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor, so I can see him with a striped scarf around his neck to honor Tom. And Johnny's used a British accent in several movies, so it's not that difficult for him to do that. And production of the next Pirates film is NOT around the corner, the movie is filming in Hawaii right now.

  42. 42


    Oh and NO!!! I love Mr. Depp but HELL NO!

    Re: caffeinatedangel – you DO know that David Tennant is not British right??

    Anyway, as a person who literally JUST got home from getting a TARDIS TATTOO…I think this is such crap news to ruin my dr who day. 1. I hate johnny depp, 2. we don't need a movie…we already wasted a whole regeneration on a movie remember? 3. Johnny Depp thinks he's british, just like madonna… 4. I don't know why Matt wouldn't be in it if they had to make a movie…[or whoever #12 will be]

    this is just bad all around and better stay a rumor!!

  45. 45

    No thanks.

    I wouldn't mind it if they gave a big budget to the crew from the series, though.

  46. 46

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO he would be the worst doctor who. A movie would TOTALLY kill doctor who, I'm an American and I think there is no way an American actor would ever play the doctor

  47. 47

    Yes, why the HELL would it be Johnny Depp!!!

    MATT SMITH just became THE DOCTOR!! WHY JOHNNY FUCKIN' DEPP?!?!?!? So retarded.

  48. 48

    Re: Big Black Dick Loves Him Some Dick, Too
    You wish oh phallophilic and fellatophilic one.

  49. 49

    For the love of all things good and holy, NO! RTD already almost fucked up the series. Thank God he's not running the show any more. I love Johnny Depp, but no. It would be a disaster and there would be no way for it to be done well. That is a character that is so quintessentially British that to have an American play him just wouldn't work. Plus it wouldn't work with the series unless Matt Smith Regenerated into the Depp and, I'm sorry, but Matt Smith is just way too good. The thought of this makes me feel like I need to take a long shower. Who fans would never go for this.

  50. 50

    Re: Busta – Scotland is part of the UK…Tennant is British.

  51. 51

    Anyone but him. Oh god : (

  52. 52

    Matt Smith or David Tennant. But really now that the new incarnation of the Doctor is out is needs Matt. It could use some Captain Jack Harkness too though. That kinda captain I'd be ok with! ;)

  53. 53

    dr who is a british thing…americans need to stay away. There is no need for a movie and even if there was one (as awesome as i think he is) johnny depp should not be anywhere near it…they some how need to get david tennant involved!

  54. 54

    Oh please, no no no no no!!!! I'm so sick of Johnny Depp. He'd ruin Doctor Who forever. Please no.

  55. 55

    Hahaa - with Gaga as the villain i presume.

  56. RS says – reply to this


    Last I heard Johnny was doing a DR. SHADOWS movie, with Tim Burton directing.

  57. 57

    I'm sure by Johnny Depp they meant Matt Smith, or whoever actually happens to BE Doctor Who at the time. What is this BS?

  58. 58


  59. 59

    if there WAS going to be a movie i reckon they would get matt smith to do it SEEING he is the NEW doctor :)

  60. 60

    OMG, the delish Johnny and Doctor Who combined. My geek-o-meter has gone into overdrive………

  61. 61

    Not going to happen, you retard. Christ, you're dumber than Sarah Palin.

  62. 62

    Well I guess the Oscar will continue to elude Depp if he keeps choosing roles like this and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE……NO DR. WHO!!! We don't care about Dr Who! I'm sick to death of these kinds of movies. Remember a stinker awhile back with Guy Pearce called "Time Machine?" It tanked! For the love of God NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  63. 63

    Pirates is already filming .. that will be done by end of summer. But then he starts filming Dark Shadows with Tim Burton. So I doubt he would jump right in to another tv series turned to movie project..but who knows.

  64. 64

    Love dr who AND especially love johnny but there shouldnt be a film, if there was dr who shouldnt be an american seeing as it is a british phenomenon, i dont have anything against americans mind! and it should be matt smith if there ever would be a movie! making dr who an american would be like making james bond an american!

  65. 65

    If his doctor was an english jack sparrow type, then it would be good. the othe dr who film was set in america and it was shit.

  66. 66

    MORE IMPORTANTLY….is Vanessa sporting a baby bump in this pic?????? or is her dress just in a weird position?

  67. 67

    i know hes an anglophile but seriously? britain has some of the greatest (often shakespearean) actors in the world, why are we importing?

  68. 68

    NO! Johnny should NOT play The Doctor. David Tennant all the way!

  69. 69

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Johnny Depp fan. But I am also a new Dr. Who fan. And while I love Matt Smith, if there is a movie to be made….David Tennant is the only man to choose.

  70. sarko says – reply to this


    Re: Busta – erm, you do realise that david tennant IS british, right? i can only assume that you think that english = british. do you understand what britain is? britain is not england. britain is england, scotland, wales and northern ireland. i commonly hear americans call an english accent a 'british' accent, which is mostly wrong. so, get it right.

  71. 71

    I wouldn't mind seeing a movie with various incarnations of the Doctor, but NO JOHNNY DEPP!!!! Now, Robert Carlyle as the Doctor…. THAT I would love.

  72. 72

    i love Johnny Depp and i love doctor who so this combo is amazing… but i would really love to see David Tennant take the role of the doctor in the movie, i miss him he was my favorite doctor.

  73. 73

    DAVID TENNANT ALL THE WAY!!!!! If there should be any doctor it should be him.

  74. 74


  75. 75

    So, will Johnny run around BARE ASSED BUTT-NAKED in it? He's kinda a weird guy, but he's sorta seksi!

  76. saff says – reply to this


    I agree with everyone else, I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, have been since I was 8, and 1) American actor playing the Doctor = WRONG WRONG WRONG, and 2) Matt Smith is the Doctor, nobody else is needed THANK YOU and 3) BBC will NEVER let some American company steal their franchise! Sorry, this is SO not gonna happen. Long live Doctor Eleven!

  77. 77

    please no. I won't watch it. Besides, I already heard this is a rumor

  78. 78

    Okay, you're all saying 'An American in Doctor Who? Noo!' Are you forgetting that in POTC and Alice in Wonderland, he does a PRETTY CONVINCING British accent? He would be amazing as The Doctor! He can so do this!

  79. 79

    Love Dr. Who…love Depp. Sure, why not? I bet he could do a good job of it.

  80. 80

    I love Johnny Depp. But Dr. Who NEEDS to be British. I'm not a huge Matt Smith fan, but he would do. I do however think that Johnny Depp could make an interesting Master though. Tim Curry would too!
