Kinnear: Doctor Who?!

The much touted once and future Doctor Rory Kinnear has denied that he’ll be the twelfth incarnation of the Time Lord.

The Skyfall actor, who has been the bookies favourite since he was rumoured to have been offered the part in June, told The Independent he was certain he wasn’t going to be asked:

I don’t where it came from and how these things evolve. I haven’t been and I am totally certain that I will not be asked to be the next Doctor Who.

He added:

If I was an actor who was really longing to play Doctor Who, then this would be torturous, but it’s a programme I’ve never watched, so I don’t even really know what it is.

So is he readying his Moffat-style smokescreen for when he takes on the role or is this genuine denial? Is he even the right fit for the Doctor or should the Producers look elsewhere? Would you like to see him step aboard the TARDIS?

He’s certainly a very talented choice and an unusual choice for the role but is he too different?
