Doctor Simm?

Life on Mars star, John Simm has been interviewed lately, and has hinted that he would like to portray the Doctor in the near future. Please note before any further reading that this is just a rumour! Simm played the Master at the end of the third series of Doctor Who, but it is still unknown whether he will come back in that same role of not. There has been much speculation around over the past weeks on who will play the new Doctor, but the BBC is tight-lipped about anything yet. What he said in the interview was;

Has the Beeb asked him to be Doctor Who?
“I'm the Master. Simple as that. I don't want to be Doctor Who. I might be the Master again... I'm not allowed to say.”
Because the Master died in Series Three, this makes it more open for him to tke the role, because the Doctor could regenerate into anyone. But it is still very unlikely that he will. He wants to be known was the Master. Simply that. If he takes the role of the Doctor, it just wouldn't look right or make any sense. To read this interview, click here.
Other new-Doctor rumours state that Paterson Joseph, now star of the new remake of Survivors (with Freema Agyeman), has said that he might quite like to play the role. This started before the Colin Salmon rumour, and Joseph was the first black Doctor to be speculated. There is no reason now why the Doctor can not be black, and with the developing world we live in, this possibility grows ever more likely. He said “His [the Doctor's] parameters are so vast. I don't see why he can't have more regenerations than the 13 that those who know think a Time Lord can have."
What do you think of this news?
Please Comment! Thanks!

Great post Alex, this sounds alright, but I want David Tennant to stay. I think David Morrasey would make a great Doctor though. He seemed alright in the preview.
