Part of me says that no how, no way, could Jason Statham ever be Eleven.
Yet another part of me reflects on Nu Who with it's occasional slo-mo walk through flames, wielding of the sonic like it's a 9mm and other such things straight out of the Hollywood action handbook. Maybe it would be natural progression after all? The return of Venusian Aikido with extreme prejudice, perhaps? Daleks? Eleven gonna kick y'all inna face!! Possibly to some techno
? (Maybe Statham!Eleven was meant to be? "My name is ______. This is the day that I die." How very "Doomsday" of him!)
Of course, I don't imagine he'd ever do it as the Beeb couldn't afford him and he's too busy starring in loud, 'splody popcorn flicks, but I suppose you never know. Nu Who is a popular int'l property now and what better way to get that elusive Murkan moneys into Who then with Brawler Doctor? [/is sort of irrationally nervous at the prospects]
