David Harewood has revealed he’s extremely flattered to be on the (ever growing) list of potential Twelfth Doctors.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly it’s “amazing” to be attached to the coveted role but insisted “it’s only rumours”. He admitted: “It’d be extraordinary if the BBC were to make me their first black Doctor”. And he’d be no stranger to the series, having played Joshua Naismith in The End of Time. “Yes, I was in David Tennant’s final episode,” he added. “So it would probably never happen anyway!”

Speculation about the next Doctor has been rife since the BBC announced at the start of the month that Matt Smith will be leaving in this year’s Christmas Special. It has since come to light that his (or her…) identity may not be made public until “early autumn”.

David Tennant has revealed he “never got bored” during his time on Doctor Who.

In a recent interview with Big Issue the actor fondly looked back on his tenure in the TARDIS… “It was never a chore,” he said about donning his iconic pinstripe suit and Converse. “I left feeling incredibly great about it. It is still something I am recognised for all the time and I will forever be proud of it.” His final episode as the Tenth Doctor, The End of Time, Part Two, premiered on BBC One on 1st January 2010.

He also comments on the significance of his last line in the series, “I don’t want to go”. “I think that was a very clever line,” he explains. “In terms of character that’s exactly what that version of the Doctor would say. But at the same time it was a bigger line than that – it was Russell T Davies expressing how he felt about us leaving together. We’d given it all we could. We knew there would be nothing we’d do that would be like this. Whatever happens, this is unique. There’s nothing like Doctor Who. It was a bittersweet goodbye.”

David has “nothing to say” about any involvement in next year’s 50th anniversary.

Bernard Cribbins has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

The actor, who has appeared in the revived series of Doctor Who as Donna Noble’s grandfather, Wilfred Mott (Voyage of the Damned, Series 4 and The End of Time), has received it for his services to drama.

He is also known for his roles in Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D., Fawlty Towers and The Railway Children.

He has commented: “You can’t go through life expecting to get prizes. You just get on with things, which is how it should be.”

The Mirror has a new interview with Billie Piper, in which she comments on the impact Doctor Who’s had on her career and notes that it’s now “totally the end” for Rose.

“It’s totally the end of Doctor Who for me,” she admitted. “I can’t imagine anything would bring me back, and they’re done with Rose. They’ve got this great new set up with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan and it works brilliantly. So there’s no way in the world it will happen again for me. Well, not for the foreseeable future.”

Billie was last seen in Doctor Who in David Tennant’s last episode, The End of Time, Part Two, and has previously said that the “ship has sailed” on her time in the show.

Life of Wylie has a new interview with John Simm, in which he admits that he would love to return to Doctor Who for the opportunity to “have a go” at Matt Smith’s Doctor.

The actor, acclaimed for his portrayal of the Master, has said that he would “seriously consider” reprising the role if he were to be asked. “Steven Moffat is a brilliant writer and it would be nice to see what he does with the Master,” he said. “They can do whatever they want. You’re at their mercy. But I’d seriously consider it if they asked me.”

He admitted: “I’d love to have a go at Matt Smith because I think he’s really great.”

He echoed the comments on The One Show yesterday, saying “it was such fun to do”.

John Simm has revealed that he would “certaining consider” returning to Doctor Who if the opportunity were to arise.

The actor – who appeared as the Master in Series 3 and The End of Time – briefly mentioned a potential comeback during an appearance on The One Show earlier tonight. “I would certainly consider it,” he admitted. “There seems to have been a lot of talking about it recently, but I haven’t spoken to anyone about it. I would definitely consider it though. It was such fun to do.”

Would you like to see more of the Master, or has this renegade Time Lord has his day?

John Simm has expressed an interest in returning to Doctor Who in the future, Steven Moffat has revealed!

The showrunner has admitted that he was once pulled aside by the actor, who suggested that he wouldn’t say no to a comeback. “After his last appearance he’d been saying, ‘I think now that David’s left as the Doctor, I would have to leave the Master,” Moffat said at the Series 6 premiere screening in New York. “He later pulled me aside and said, ‘I didn’t mean that! Look at me, I’m fit, I’m okay!’”

Simm first appeared as the renegade Time Lord in the Series 3 episode, Utopia, and he later reprised the role for the Tenth Doctor’s final story, The End of Time. He has previously said that his memories from filming are ones he’ll “cherish forever”.

Please join us as we send out birthday wishes to Bernard Cribbins, who turns 82 today!

Although the actor appeared as Tom Campbell in the 1966 Doctor Who movie Daleks’ Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D., he is now best known through time and space as Donna Noble’s grandad Wilfred Mott, first seen in Voyage of the Damned and last seen in The End of Time, Part Two. Wherever Wilf is (probably on the hill!), we hope he’s doing well, and, as for Bernard, we hope he has a wonderful day!

Feel free to leave your own birthday messages for Bernard in the comments section!
