Paterson Who?

Will it be Paterson Joseph? One Doctor Who fan site seems utterly convinced.

Paterson Joseph in Survivors

Paterson Joseph in Survivors is currently claiming they have “it on very good authority” Joseph (who appeared tonight as Greg Preston in Survivors) has been confirmed as the 11th Doctor and that an official announcement is imminent.

Evidence? That slip of the tongue by Phillip Rhys featured in the YouTube clip on the right, a generally enthusiastic comment made by Joseph to the BBC News site and a previous association with incoming show-runner Steven Moffat (appearing in last year’s underrated Jekyll).

Man the messageboards everyone!

    I did hear that Paddy Power have suspended betting on Paterson getting the role. Someone that I know managed to get a £20 bet on him at 25-1 a few weeks ago too.

    It is a very good sip of the tongue though. He doesn’t list any of the shows the other actors are in and says it in a very matter of fact way as though it’s common knowledge already before heroically trying to pull it back.

    “Afterwards, I had a lovely chat with Steven Moffatt who told me who the new Doctor Who was.” – Gareth McLean in his Guardian blog today.

    Paterson Joseph, a new TARDIS set, and a move to HD, according to Den of Geek:

    I’m quietly of the opinion that I don’t want to see David Tennant regenerate into Patterson Joseph. I’d love it if DT simply piloted the TARDIS into a sunset and then have PT turn up ‘Rose’-style in the first episode of the new series.

    Not likely though …

    Is it true that OG was full of fanboys saying “I’m not racist, but…” and questioning the logic of the Doctor changing colour on regeneration? Because, of course, the regeneration process obeys all known laws of logic, physics and biology.
