He was a good doctor to be honest, however if you read the chronicles of Doctor Who and it states that there should have been only 12 regenerations. And so there can't be a new doctor. I am sad to see him go because he really made a impact on the Doctor Who series and I just don't think there should be anymore since this is the Doctor's last regeneration.

I think Martin Freeman should be the next doctor. He would be really good at it and he would be really funny.

I think the next actor to play the doctor should definitely be a man. My dad and I think it should be British actor Simon Pegg.

I would like to be the next doctor!

I agree that Peter made a good choice so he can move on to other things. I also think that next doctor should be a woman.
