...but still not ginger.

Possibly my last comment on the Twelfth Doctor thing before the casting is announced. Definitely my last before yer actual tomorrow...

How did we get from "well-known Irish actor" to "Peter Capaldi"? Cos, y'know, he's not from Ireland...

IIRC, last time, there was a sudden rush of bets on Matt Smith in the last day or so - his name pretty much came out of nowhere. Which suggests a leak, deliberate or otherwise. Which may be the reason for the live programme this time (less easy to leak if you don't have a pre-recorded programme). (Still doesn't explain why they can't just do a press release and an announcement on the news...) Which also suggests that maybe *none* of the names currently being mentioned have any substance to them.

Someone somebody suggested earlier today, either on here or Facebook or Twitter, got me thinking - Colin Morgan? Well-known, Irish, has appeal (thanks to Merlin) to the Doctor Who demographic..?

We'll know tomorrow..!
