British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor has been given 7/1 odds and is the sci-fi fansites’ favourite to fill the role, not to mention becoming the first black Doctor in the show’s history. Chiwetel, 35, has already stated that if the series’ producers asked him to play the Time Lord, he’d tell them ‘yes, of course.’
Oh my dear me yes. I love how every name that comes up I get more and more excited. I know rationally it will probably be an unknown, but it’s such a FUN game to play.
Am I the only person who knows who has been cast as the next Doctor, and who has known this was coming for several weeks? I figured that if it filtered down to me, it must be common knowledge among people who matter.
…now I feel kind of special. Yay me.
