Tovey, Burn and Colman Deny Doctor Who Rumours
While both actors are keen to tackle the Doctor neither of them believes that their respective places in the Whoniverse will stand against them when the producers finally name the next Doctor.
Russell who previously played Alonso Frame in Voyage of the Damned and The End of Time and was believed to have had a screen test for the Eleventh Doctor after being recommended by former show runner Russell T Davies for the part, told UKPA:
Meanwhile, Burn, who played Owen Harper in Torchwood, explicitly ruled himself out because of his ties to the Doctor Who spin-off:
Someone amazing who won’t be taking on the role is double BAFTA winner and former Doctor Who guest star Olivia Colman, who won’t be backing herself at the bookies when it comes to who’ll be the next Doctor.
With so many established names declaring or denying their interest in the role; would you like to see another unknown cast in the role or an as yet to be revealed leftfield known name? Should established Whoniverse actors be counted out?
