Jodie Whittaker is bowing this year Which doctor? New Year’s Eve special and with former host Russell T. Davies returning to the much-anticipated series, most fans are wondering about the actor will take the robe now. One British diner, who has been on the fandom’s radar for quite some time, doesn’t seem to want to be the next Doctor, and he has an interesting reason why.

Ben Whishaw has enjoyed moderate success over the past few years by appearing in a number of popular films, though none have come close to his role as Q in Link series insofar as the term ‘blockbuster’ is concerned. Whishaw first appeared in 2012 Skyfall and continue that sequence with 2015 The spectre and in 2021 There’s no time to die.

The latter being the end of Daniel Craig in the 007 role, which could be the end of Whishaw’s tenure as a tech genius. And apparently, the actor isn’t inclined to take on another role that might draw parallels with Q.

In a recent interview with the BBC, the British star revealed why he doesn’t want to be the next Doctor in the network’s long-running sci-fi series.

“I feel like I don’t have to do that role,” he said. “Of course it’s not the same, but it’s a bit like Q, and I felt it needed someone more unexpected, something from the left. That’s what I would appreciate as a viewer. ”

While Whishaw is not entirely wrong with this comparison, a PhD is much more than just a scientist or a technology expert. So for the sake of everyone who is begging Whovians, let’s hope the actor changes his mind if Davies decides to call him in to audition.
