Rhys Darby for 12th Doctor Who

Imagine The 11th Doctor has just finished Regeneration “Still not ginger” Amy pond says. “It is Electric Cooper” The Doctor (Rhys Darby) says.

These were the opening lines one Doctor Who fan wrote when he started a new Facebook page dedicated to scoring Rhys Darby with the role of the twelfth doctor.  This was on July 3rd.  However, now that rumors exist that Matt Smith may be planning to quit at the end of the next season, could the former Flight of the Conchords manager be in with a real chance?

On twitter, Darby wrote:

I would love to be the next Doctor Who. I tried to be the last one but got the frosty ‘it can’t be a non Brit’…

If you’d like to encourage this campaign beyond the 571 people who already like the idea of having Rhys Darby as the next Doctor Who, you can check out the Facebook page here.
