If that Good Omens adaptation ever gets off the ground, y’know who would make a BLOODY PERFECT Aziraphale?
Ukweli Roach! Who has already played an angel, so, y’know…there’s that. Also: FACE. Look at his wee angelic face. Pair him up with a Crowley of your choice and you’re golden.
This post brought to you by hey, Eternal Law is showing on ITV3 now. Shame they cancelled it, it had potential. Also PRETTY.
Doctor Who Racebending:
Ukweli Roach as Eleven: He has Eleven’s sense of bafflement and wonder down pat, and has already played an old man in a young man’s body (see: Eternal Law)
Sophie Okenodo as River: As we saw in The Beast Below, she is badass and knows her way around a gun.
Antonia Thomas as Amy: Tough, smart, and (let’s face it) beautiful.
Richard Ayoade as Rory: Stop picturing him as Moss for a second, and you’ll realise he can do adorkable very well
Lenny Henry as Nine: Contrary to popular belief, he can act. The Independent said of his Othello: “The frenzy within his imagination explodes into rage and, finally, wretchedness.” Oh, he’d have made a brilliant Nine.
Paterson Joseph as Ten: He can do both drama and comedy, and is mega-charismatic
Nina Toussaint-White as Rose: Remember her as Mels? Oh god, she’d be a perfect Rose.
Meera Syal as Donna: Another fine actress known mostly for comedy. Remember her as Nasreen? She’d be great.
Chiwetel Ejiofor as the Master: Ejiofor in Serenity was BRILLIANT, one of my favourite villains of all time, he was so good. Basically he should play every villain ever.
Michael Obiora as Jack: He was Billy Shipton in Blink- the lovely, flirty Billy. Look! He’s got no shirt on!
Art Malik as Wilf: Internationally famous, great actor.
Marianne Jean-Baptiste: Anyone ever seen her in Secrets And Lies, Mike Leigh’s family drama? I just get the feeling she’d make a really good Jackie.
Kehinde Fadipe as Sally: She was great in Misfits, vunerable and tough all at once.
Daniel Kaluuya as Craig: Have you ever seen Black Mirror? Oh god he is a FABULOUS actor. He could do everything required of Craig, comedy and drama and everything.
Angel Coulby as the TARDIS: She’d be brilliant, nuff said
Gina Torres as Canton: Because she ought to be in EVERYTHING.
Racebending Doctor Who - Ukweli Roach as Eleven
I watch Eternal Law for this man. He would make a fantastic, FANTASTIC Doctor. He’s got Eleven’s sense of wonder and bafflement down pat. Plus he’s already played an ancient man in a young man’s body.
