The speculation as to who should replace the current Doctor is ever present, from the moment they are cast.
So you know who they should cast?
It works almost too well. Touch of Renfield from Dracula, touch of the inventor from Mystery Men, and, well, a shedload of Tom Waits from Time Square.
Hell, if Tom isn’t a renegade Time Lord in real life, I’ll be mildly disappointed.
Failing that, Peter Falk.
