This is not confirmed, and the source is The Mirror, but if the bookies have stopped taking bets, something is up…but The Mirror reports that the next Doctor will be actor Kris Marshall, who recently starred in the British series Death In Paradise but recently announced he is leaving the show.
If you’re not familiar with the name, you might be familiar with the face if you’ve ever seen the movie Love Actually…he’s the one that went to America to meet girls.
Yes, this guy.
I’m not sure I can see it but I only really know him from the film, and that certainly isn’t a character I can see as the Doctor, but I’ve been surprised by actors before.
In the trailer posted below, we do see the Doctor start to regenerate – which indicates he will regenerate no later than the end of Series 10 and NOT in the Christmas episode as had been done for Smith and Capaldi, and the Mirror’s source says Marshall had already joined the show.
So take it as you will while we wait with baited breath…
