I’ve done one iconic character, that might be enough. — Daniel Radcliffe, on the possibility that he might play the 12th Doctor.
It should come as no surprise that he’s not the only British star who’s been gently fielding this question.
I’d look silly in a bow tie — Idris Elba, on the possibility that he might play the 12th Doctor.
The good news is, according to the Radio Times’ sources, the BBC does not plan to announce who’ll be playing Twelve until just before filming on the 2013 Christmas Special begins, i.e., in August or September. I’m sure this piece of news will mean that everybody calms down and stops searching for every scrap of news or rumor on the casting.
What? You say I’ve made an assumption based in none of the realities of human nature? Ah, well.
