Simon Brew May 31, 2017

Is the person in the Vault in Doctor Who series 10 really who we all think it is? Speculation ahead...

This article contains spoilers up to and including The Pyramid At The End Of The World (we've not seen beyond that at the time of writing).

We also talk about someone known to be returning, whose appearance has been revealed in promotions for the show. Still, scroll below the spoiler-squirrel at your peril…

As Steven Moffat has admitted, it’s the ultimate simple mystery: a locked door, and the question of just who is behind it? And by the end of The Pyramid At The End Of The World, seven episodes into Doctor Who series 10, it seemed as though we’d had our answers. Missy was in the vault. It was all »

Luke Treadaway and Sacha Dhawan tipped as candidates to replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

13 May 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Peter Capaldi set to call time on his role as the Doctor following the current tenth series of Doctor Who, there’s been a lot of speculation as to who will be the next actor to take on the role of the iconic Time Lord in the long-running BBC sci-fi.

Last month, The Mirror claimed that Death in Paradise’s Kris Marshall had already been cast as the Thirteenth Doctor. However, the Radio Times is now disputing that report, stating that Marshall is no longer a shoe-in for the part, and that Luke Treadaway has caught the eye of the production team thanks to his work in the Sky Atlantic series Fortitude and his role in the feature film A Street Cat Named Bob.

The article also goes on to suggest that Sacha Dhawan – who played director Waris Hussein in the BBC’s Doctor Who dramatisation An Adventure in Space and Time »

‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report

21 April 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?

According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”

David Bradley to play the First Doctor in Doctor Who Christmas Special

18 April 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like David Bradley is set for another adventure in space and time, with The Mirror reporting that the Game of Thrones actor is set to portray the First Doctor in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, which will mark the final appearance of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor.

Bradley previously portrayed William Hartnell, the actor behind the First Doctor, in the BBC’s Doctor Who 50th anniversary drama An Adventure in Space and Time. The plot will reportedly see the First Doctor joining forces with the Twelfth in order to save their home planet Gallifrey by moving it to another dimension.

Bradley will become the third actor to portray the First Doctor on screen, with Richard Hurndall taking on the role for 1983’s ‘The Five Doctors’ following Hartnell’s death in 1975.

Rumour: Kris Marshall replacing Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

16 April 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Doctor Who returned to our TV screens last night for Peter Capaldi’s final series as the Doctor [read our review of ‘The Pilot’ here], and if a new report from The Mirror is to be believed, the BBC has already found his replacement.

According to the paper, Kris Marshall – who has long been rumoured as a contender for Capaldi’s successor – has already been cast as the Thirteenth Doctor, and that he will make his debut in the show during the current tenth series, rather than the Christmas Special.

Kris Marshall has already joined the cast and will regenerate at the end of this series, not in the Christmas special,” claim’s the paper’s ‘source’. “They won’t risk a woman Doctor. They want a David Tennant type.”

Speculation that Marshall could be up for the role of The Doctor first began when it was announced that he was leaving the BBC’s Death in Paradise, »

How did you get involved in A Few Less Men?

When I was CEO at Screen Nsw, A Few Best Men was one of the films we financed. So I got to know the producing team.

Doctor Who: Tilda Swinton Is Favored To Be The Next Doctor

16 February 2017 9:52 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s been a longstanding desire for many Doctor Who fans that an upcoming Doctor be female. Doctor Who is a series that’s been around for decades, and in that time they’ve gone through more than twelve Doctors (including the War Doctor). Yet despite the laundry list of Doctors, none of them have been female. Before Peter Capaldi signed on as the most recent iteration of the Time Lord, there were a few British actresses who fans thought would have been a good fit for the quirky character.

Peter Capaldi’s time is nearing an end — if you’ll recall, he recently announced that this upcoming season of the sci-fi show would, in fact, be his last. With that in mind, the eternal question of “who will be the next Doctor?” is circulating the web.

Tilda Swinton is the bookies fave for Doctor Who role

16 February 2017 9:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tilda Swinton is the favourite to take the role of Doctor Who on television once Peter Capaldi bails out later in the year. Apparently there has been a big bet placed in the last 48 hours which has propelled the Doctor Strange and Orlando actress to the top of the list.

The odds now stand at 7/2 for Swinton to take the role. She was previously at 10-1. The new odds position the actress ahead of previous favourite Kris Marshall, who is still 4-1 to replace Capaldi. Olivia Colman is 5-1 and Maxine Peake is 8-1.

Capaldi will complete the current series, which is now shooting and depart the BBC show after this year’s Christmas special, which will air on Christmas Day.

Tilda Swinton is the new favorite to replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

16 February 2017 1:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ladbrokes has updated its odds with regards Peter Capaldi’s replacement in Doctor Who. According to the bookmaker, the new favourite is Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton, which would put her in the history books as the first ever female Doctor.

Keep in mind that these are just betting odds founded on a great degree of research, taking into account statements from actors, historical trends, and the push to finally give audiences a female Doctor (Ladbrokes are offering just 5/4 that a female actress will be cast).

Some other interesting names under consideration are Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and Richard Ayoade, while Kris Marshall is 4/1 second favourite following his departure from Death in Paradise.

Doctor Who: the next Doctor has apparently been cast

30 January 2017 2:21 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Simon Brew Jun 13, 2017

Russell T Davies says he knows who the next Doctor will be, but the name is still under wraps...

Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year, and incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall is the man tasked with finding his replacement. The current showrunner, Steven Moffat, is on his way out, having helmed Capaldi and Matt Smith's time in the Tardis.

As we've covered in a fair amount of detail (see: page 2 of this article), the bookmakers of Britain - as ever - have had a field day trying to guess who will step into Capaldi's boots.

Could Phoebe Waller Bridge or Tilda Swinton be the first female Doctor? Or did Kris Marshall quit Death In Paradise to free up time for Doctor Who? Or could it be someone like Sacha Dhawan »
