Chibnall says next Doctor won’t be “a gimmick”
Chris Chibnall has once again commented on the process of finding the Thirteenth Doctor, insisting that “nothing has yet been decided”.
The incoming showrunner will take over the show’s reigns from Steven Moffat for Series 11 and beyond, and the first task on his to do list will be to enlist a Time Lord anew by casting Peter Capaldi’s successor.
However, the writer remained tight-lipped when responding to speculation that the next incarnation will be a female.
“I haven’t got my feet under the table yet,” he told the East Anglian Daily Times. “But nothing is ruled out. I don’t want the casting to be a gimmick and that’s all that I can say.”
