Who is the most popular choice to play a female Doctor in Doctor Who?

British science fiction mag SFX polled its readers on who they would like to see play the first female Doctor in Doctor Who. It an entirely unscientific study of one of the most crucial questions of our time. Here's what the SFX editors report:

The top 5 suggestions for the best female Doctor were:

1. Helena Bonham-Carter
2. Tamsin Greig
3. Emma Thompson
4. Keeley Hawes
5. Emma Watson

I'd definitely vote for Emma Thompson. Or how about Lena Headey?

No list that omits Tilda Swinton would be worth considering.
