@mishacollins: also, in totally unrelated news, i'll have a very exciting announcement tomorrow. Hint: it has something to do with the UK and phone booths.
Assuming a somewhat conservative "same but different" new Doctor is most likely
Omigod guys it's like we're talking about Nerd Pope.

What about someone of another race than white playing the doctor? As someone who understands casting/storytelling, do you think there will ever be a non-white doctor?
Of course. (I thought I’d said that I was disappointed that it didn’t happen this time, and that there are some amazing actors out there. I was rather disappointed that Paterson Joseph didn’t get it last time, although I’ve loved Matt’s Eleven.) And yes, I have no doubt there will be. (I know one black actor who was already offered the part of the Doctor, and who turned it down.) Just as there will be a female Doctor.
Can I ask you who the black actor who turned down the role was?
You can ask, but seeing that it was something I was told in confidence by the actor in question, you won’t get an answer.
The Doctor: Come on, then! The Doctor will see you now!
Atraxi: You are not of this world.
The Doctor: No but I've put a lot work into it.
Atraxi: Is this world important?
The Doctor: Important? What's that mean, important? Six billion people live here, is that important? Here's a better question: Is this world a threat to the Atraxi? Oh come on, you're monitoring the whole planet! Is this world a threat?
The Doctor: Are the peoples of this world guilty of any crime by the laws of the Atraxi?
The Doctor: Okay. One more, just one: Is this world protected? You're not the first to have come here. Oh, there have been so many. And what you've got to ask is, what happened to them?
The Atraxi scan through images of all 11 incarnations of the Doctor.
The Doctor: Hello. I'm The Doctor. Basically.... Run.
I loved that scene. So damn cool
