According to reports Doctor Who’s new leading man ‘has joined cast and could regenerate sooner than you think’. The Mirror is reporting that none other than Kris Marshall has been cast as the new Doctor and will be appearing sooner than we all expect.
The Mirror Online has been told by a show insider who the new man – or woman – to take on the job will be.
Bookies had been offering odds on Tilda Swinton and Olivia Colman to become the first female Doctor.
But the Mirror understands that the next actor to become a Time Lord is Kris Marshall.
And the new Doctor is set to join the show during the 10th series, which kicks off tonight, rather than in the Christmas special.
Our source revealed: “Kris Marshall has already joined the cast and will regenerate at the end of this series, not in the Christmas special.
“They won’t risk a woman Doctor.
“They want a David Tennant type.”
Kris’s representatives have refused to comment.
All this of course is rumors and we still have no definitive answers leaving us to wonder if this is just some misdirection from the BBC, of did someone spoil the surprise for all of us
