Ever since fans first found out that Matt Smith would not be returning as the 11th Doctor in the BBC hit series ‘Doctor Who’, the question on everyone’s mind is who will play the part next.
One of the leading theories on the subject, is that the 12th Doctor would be played by James Bond star Rory Kinnear, according to the actor himself however, that seems like an impossibility. The jury is still out on who will play the next Time Lord, but as far as Rory Kinnear stands the actor stated, “I don’t know where it (the story) came from and how these things evolve. I haven’t been and I am totally certain that I will not be asked to be the next Doctor Who. If I was an actor who was really longing to play Doctor Who, then this would be torturous, but it’s a program I’ve never watched, so I don’t even really know what it is.”
Kinnear gained popularity when he took the role of Tanner in “Skyfall”. He spoke with Britain’s The Independent recently and decided to dispel the rumors of playing Doctor Who stating, “I really enjoy acting. So the idea of doing the same part over a number of years is not something I’ve longed for.”
