Fans of Doctor Who are anxiously awaiting the big announcement by the BBC tomorrow about who will replace Matt Smith as the next Doctor. It won’t be official until the BBC says it is, but one young actor just tweeted a major hint that he might be the one taking over. So who is it?
Here’s the tweet:
also, in totally unrelated news, i’ll have a very exciting announcement tomorrow. Hint: it has something to do with the UK and phone booths.

Collins is probably best known for playing Castiel on Supernatural. He’s also American, which really brings this whole thing into question. Doctor Who has really taken off in the United States in the last few years, but we can’t imagine the BBC would cast an American as the Doctor. Maybe as the Master? Or K-9?
We’ll know for sure tomorrow at 2PM EST when the announcement is made.
There’s also a real chance that Collins is just trying to get some attention and that he’s no way involved with Who. Either way, this isn’t helping me stay calm until the announcement tomorrow.
- Yesterday everyone though Peter Capaldi would be the new Doctor
- We’ll know for sure who’s playing the Doctor on Sunday
- Steven Moffat threatens fans if they leak the SDCC trailer for the 50th Anniversary
