Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell wouldn’t mind playing the Doctor

With the announcement of Peter Capaldi sadly leaving the TARDIS at the end of 2017, many people have begun speculating who the next Doctor should be. Fans brought up a POC Doctor and/or a female Doctor, but this time, fans resurfaced a now-deleted-tweet from Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell, who was asked if she’d ever want to be on Doctor Who. Her response: “I’d like to BE Doctor Who.”

Of course, the tweet is from 2015 after Peter Capaldi debuted as the 12th Doctor. But that has not stopped fans from imagining the British actress as the 13th Doctor.

There has been no word from BBC regarding Doctor casting. Plus, it has been just a day. Capaldi announced yesterday he would step down as Doctor after this year’s Christmas Special, leaving an empty spot for new showrunner Chris Chibnall a new Doctor to play with.

Doctor Who returns April 15th on BBC America/BBC One.
