Yeah, but it also wouldnt surprise me if Matt had told Moff a lot earlier and he already had a short list in mind. Or Moff just knew that Matt was probably going to be leaving in a years time anyway and already started working on who to try and get.

Time will tell. It always does. Razz

Didn't Wil Wheaton imply he knew who it was on Tumblr? I wouldn't be surprised by a "fast announcement." As a matter of fact, I thought that Moffat had said he had an actor in mind for the part before Matt came in and wowed their pants off. Maybe he decided to turn around and make an offer to someone he already saw audition?

A Doctor Who page on Facebook posted:

Contrary to whatever you may have heard, the BBC has announced that there will be no announcement today about the new Doctor. We are announcing that there is no announcement.

That seems odd. Why not just not comment at all?

To avoid angry fans wondering why the BBC didn't live up to their word when it wasn't their word to begin with.

It didn't make much sense that there would be an announcement already. I only saw it in one place on tumblr, so I am surprised that they had to announce it on facebook.

The story was, that I heard anyway, a newspaper had got hold of the story and found out who the 12th Doctor is going to be, and said that they would publish it. Thus the rumour was that because the BBC wanted to announce it themselves, they would be forced to make the announcement themselves this weekend. So it would have made sense if that were the case, but it obviously wasn't. bounce

Sure, because the BBC with their very modest budget can help an actor relocate to the UK and then pay him enough to make it worth it.

A couple of sources are claiming that Rory Kinnear has been offered the role, but no confirmation.

I only know him from a cameo in Ashes to Ashes, Series 2, but I guess he's been in some of the recent Bond films.

He played Bill Tanner in the last two 007 movies. I wonder if they will have a special to announce whoever it is like they did Matt.

Personally, I'd love to see James Callis or Colin Salmon in the role.

That was a special episode of Doctor Who Confidential. Which is now gone. I'll expect that they'll have him on news programs, online content, and maybe Blue Peter.

Like they did with John Barrowman, born in Scotland but an
American actor.

Henry Ian Cusick from LOST would be perfect for the role.

I could live without hearing 'brother' every other word, though (could be a catchphrase like Fantastic!).  I think I was having too many Hulk Hogan promo flashbacks during LOST.

Confirmation on who will play the role of The 12th Doctor will be confirmed this Autumn, RadioTimes.com reports.
BBC insiders have told RadioTimes.com that filming on the Christmas special – to be followed by the full series – will not take place until the autumn – probably August, or even September.
According to sources the identity of The 12th Doctor is almost certain to be announced just prior to filming, which means that it is very likely that the new incarnation of the Time Lord will not be unveiled until late summer.
Initially the BBC had hoped to begin filming the Christmas special earlier, with some sources suggesting July as a potential date.

Moffit, if you're reading this, then...I'll do it! For half the money you paid Matt and I'll sign a 5 year contract so you won't have to worry about me going anywhere anytime soon. Check out my YouTube video and see what kind of Doctor I would be....

Series 5 was by far my favorite of Moffat's reign, and I hope he can do the same for the first Series of Doctor 12.
