‘Doctor Who’ season 8 spoilers: What Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman have done for 12th Doctor

Doctor WhoAt this very moment, you may be rocking back and forth with excitement over just how close we are to the news finally being confirmed about the 12th Doctor about to enter the world of “Doctor Who.” This announcement has been hyped up for the past few days, even though there is still a cloud of mystery over the question at the center of it: How will this person play the pivotal part of Time Lord, arguably one of the greatest gigs for any TV actor in Britain?

This article is really all about what some of the actors on the show now have to say about this process, beginning with Jenna Coleman suggesting as though she had an opportunity to read with prospective actors for the role. In a new interview with Zap2It, one conducted seemingly before the word came out that the new Doctor would be announced Sunday, she explained just how much of a change getting to see the audition process would be for her:

“It’s going to be exciting to have a front row seat to the casting because I’ve been on the other side of it quite a lot on different jobs. I’ve never actually been the girl reading with them, so it’s interesting. I like to see lots of different actors do the same scene, and how different they can make it and what they can do.”

Meanwhile, The Sun says that Matt Smith has already spoken with his new replacement (whomever that may be), and has tried his best to offer support and to prepare him or her for some of the flurry of press that is going to be following them very soon.

Do you think that all parties involved, from the actors to the BBC, are handling the changing of the guard in the best possible manner? If you want to read some more news related to some of the contenders for this part as of this writing, our advice is to just visit the link here.
