The Internet has been all a’tizzy today over some comments by actor, presenter and cockney Danny Dyer.
Speaking to the Daily Star about the role, the 39-year-old said, “I’d be interested in it. I could see myself in the scarf and all that…I think I could do it easy. I’d keep my accent too.”
Obviously, there’s no indication that Dyer is even in the running. But the very thought was enough to get Whovians talking.
Suffice to say, opinions were mixed. Here are some of our favourites.
Donald Trump is President
Danny Dyer is Doctor Who
What's next? Christopher Biggins is James Bond?

If the trending list is anything to go on, Brits are more alarmed by Danny Dyer being Doctor Who than the NHS being trashed or hard Brexit

If Danny Dyer becomes Doctor Who I'm going to punt this ridiculous little island into the sun. Last straw. Absolute last straw.

If the world really is going to hell in a handcart, what's the harm in making Danny Dyer Doctor Who?
