I don't think many people would have a problem with a black Doctor -- youd shout down anyone who would -- but I remain convinced that audiences would not accept a black James Bond. Not for at least another 50 years.
File off the serial number and change the name (heck, make it a spin-off "Agent 005 Donivan Carver") and give him a Bond-type script, and you might have a successful movie. But not as 007 James Bond.
Sadly, I think you're probably right, considering the fact that I've actually seen several "non-racist" fans online object to the notion of a black Doctor because "the Doctor is quintessentially British!" (yes, those were the exact words used).
Um, what? He's a FUCKING ALIEN.
