Ben Whishaw Silences Doctor Who Rumours

ben-whishaw-skyfall-doctor-whoBen Whishaw has tried to silence rumours that he may be in the running for the next Doctor.

Whishaw more recently became known for his role as the new Q in James Bond film, Skyfall.

He told the Daily Mail: “It’s not going to be me. But I don’t mind – I don’t think you can be Q and Doctor Who. It would be a bit wrong.”

eotdec-(31)Meanwhile, David Harewood has been back in the press talking about the possibility of taking on the role.

He said: “It’s only rumors but it’s amazing to be attached to such an iconic role. It would be extraordinary if the BBC were to make me the first black Doctor Who, it would be extraordinary. But I’m almost scared to make any comment whatsoever.”

Harewood said if he did become the Doctor he would make him more “badass.” On a potential costume he said: “It would definitely be something extremely sharp. Something extremely sharp and tailored. And not to kind of put too dark a pun on it, but I would make him darker. I would like to make this guy a bit of a badass if I was to do it.”

He added: “I was in David Tennant’s final episode. So it probably wouldn’t happen anyway.”
