It’s started. New, fresh, exciting, breath-taking Doctor Who has started production. One simple Tweet (that’s an entry in Twitter if you don’t do the whole Social Networking thing) from Producer Marcus Wilson has revealed all:
And now all we have to do is play the waiting game for a few more months than usual and we can all get our yearly dose of Doctor Who. Considering the episodes that are being finalised now will more than likely become part of the show’s anniversary celebrations, there’s plenty of reason to get excited even if things are at an early stage!
Whilst production starts, casting rumours are rife and one name that apparently keeps coming back to the world of Doctor Who is that of Miranda Hart. Star of her own comedy show Miranda on BBC One and soon to be making her serious drama debut in the BBC series Call The Midwife, Hart has been rumoured to have turned down a role in Doctor Who before but is now, apparently, being looked at again.
However, this is all conjecture at this point. Nothing has been confirmed by the BBC or by Steven Moffat, Matt Smith or anyone and, as always, should be taken with a pinch of very salty salt.
Word on the old Interweb seems to be that Hart is being eyed up as a potential replacement companion once Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill leave the TARDIS in the new series of Doctor Who. However what would seem more likely is that she will guest star in one or two episodes if she appears at all.
What do you think? Would Miranda Hart be a smart choice to appear alongside the Eleventh Doctor or would you rather that she stuck to her own shows?
