Lips appear to be sealed across the country – certainly in Wales and London – as to the identity of the 11th Doctor Who.
Although assumptions can be made (based upon prior events and previously gained experience) it is difficult to say definitively that casting has taken place.
However, if it hasn’t then it certainly is taking place right now, with various sources indicating shortlists of various lengths and composition.
Suggestions ranging from Harry Hill to Jeremy Irons are dancing around the interwebnet, and interestingly there is little in David Morrissey’s IMDb profile that indicates that he would be unavailable during the expected production period from June/July 2009 through to March/April 2010.
However, the same goes for many actors linked with the role, with Kasterborous favourite Sean Pertwee – insultingly referred to in the sloppy Den of Geek as “a big treat for fans of his Dad” currently shooting a movie with James Purefoy and Natasha McElhone, with little else other than voiceover work on the horizon.
Even the Prof is bewildered with this – it’s looking very definitely like a case of wait and see!
