Matt Smith has been sharing his thoughts on who should replace him when the time comes for a twelfth Doctor…


Speculation, as we all know, is one of the internet’s major foodstuffs, and Matt Smith’s recent comments in a Press Association interview have given us all something to chew on. Asked who he’d like to see as his eventual successor on Doctor Who, Smith was silent on gender and vague on age but specific on one thing: the twelfth Doctor should be cooler than him.

“I think there will need to be a younger, cooler person than me. Or maybe an older, cooler person, who knows?” So no fezes or bow-ties then? 

Smith also added to the recent kerfuffle about his tenure in the role, saying “I don’t think I’ll be doing it as long as Mr Baker,” which means we’re unlikely to see a 7-year stint in the TARDIS from Smith, who also told the Press Association,

“I just sort of take each year as it comes really. We’ve got all the rest of this year to get through and then we’ll sit down and review it from there and see where it goes.”

So someone younger or older than 29 year old Smith, but definitely cooler… Any ideas on that?
