Toby Whithouse backs Damien Molony as 13th Doctor
The writer, who recently confirmed that he’s penned the final instalment of an upcoming Series 10 three-parter, suggested that Being Human actor Damien Molony would be “terrific” as Peter Capaldi’s successor in the iconic role. “He’s a fantastic actor,” he said. “He would be my choice, or Chiwetel Ejiofor.”
He added that while it will be “a real shame” to see Peter go, he fully understands his decision to vacate the TARDIS.
He explained: “He’s been absolutely incredible as the Doctor, and he’s just the loveliest guy you’ll ever meet. He came on to the show to work with Steven Moffat, so I get it. But he’s an amazing ambassador. It’s something that’s been so important to him his whole life, so he understands the importance of the show and appreciates how treasured and loved it is.”
