Cooper on 12th Doctor
Dominic Cooper has responded to rumours that he may be in line for the role of the 12th Doctor.
He told the Express: “I’ve heard absolutely nothing of this! It’s nice to be thought about though, wherever it came from. It’s a very nice acknowledgement.
“Whoever does take it on has a very very hard job. Matt has done such a wonderful, wonderful job with the intriguing, interesting and brave choices he made with him. They’re huge shoes to fill.”
He added: “What an opportunity it would be.”
Earlier in the week the BBC claimed an announcement is a while off: “The Doctor is one of the biggest roles in TV and speculation around the identity of who will be next to step in to the TARDIS is rife, but the search has only just begun so only believe what you hear from us, and that won’t be for a while!”
