As current season of Doctor Who is coming to an end pretty soon, Peter Capaldi is set to step down as the doctor and a new Actor will come to play the iconic character. While there have been a lot of rumors lately regarding the actor who would play the role, a large number of views have mentioned Hayley Atwell as a potential female character of the show.
However, the actress said recently that she would love to see the role going to someone else as she doesn’t see herself in the character. She said, “I don’t want to play it. No. It’s just not my thing, but I really respect it. I’m a big fan of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, though. She plays the lead in Fleabag. There were talks of her being the next Doctor, and she’s so funny and eccentric and unique; she’d be great. I can’t really see anyone other than her playing it.”
Although she doesn’t want to be the next doctor, the actress during her interview pointed out another actress who she thinks is a perfect fit for the role. She stated that Phoebe Waller-Bridge might be the best choice thanks to her performance on Fleabag. In the series, she plays the title character who navigates life in London. The actress showcased her potential in the show and is a suitable candidate for the iconic television series.
Interestingly, there have been several other actresses who are wanted by fans but the next doctor is likely to be a man and Kris Marshall has been strongly rumored to land the role for next season. Whatever happens, we will have to wait little longer to find out who will be the next doctor.
