Twelfth Doctor Announced in July?
We’ve reported several names so far that have been suggested as a potential Twelfth Doctor – but with the Radio Times reporting that Matt Smith’s successor could be unveiled next month, perhaps that is the confirmation we’ve been waiting for that the deal has already been done…
For those of your who don’t know your Ben Daniels from your Paul Daniels or your Ben Millers from your Alexander Armstrongs, speculation at this point can prove to be meaningless and fruitless, unless you get the feeling that the guy you’re watching is something special. I’ve had that feeling on four occasions in the past 15 years, and with each I subconsciously picked a future Doctor.
And one Master.
“The search has begun in earnest and is active now.”
However given the increasingly tabloid tone of the website and magazine since being sold off by BBC Worldwide, we’re genuinely not certain whether we can believe that. But on the other hand, that same source apparently told the Radio Times that it would be impossible to keep the identity of the successor under wraps with the Christmas episode due to shoot in September.
After all, that was quite a haircut…
