Whovians wait with bated breath to find out who will play the 13th incarnation of Gallifrey’s Time Lord.Names like Kris Marshall, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Olivia Colman, and David Harewood have crossed bookies’ point spreads.But there may be a new contender for the coveted role: Luke Treadaway.Radio Times on Friday cited an anonymous source who said the Fortitude star is “in the race” for season 11 of Doctor Who.The 32-year-old Englishman reportedly caught producers’ attention for his portrayal of scientist Vincent Rattrey in Sky Atlantic’s chilly sci-fi psychological thriller. Treadaway appears alongside big names like Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Dennis Quaid, and the Doctor himself, Christopher Eccleston, who played professor Charlie Stoddart in the first series.A singer and actor, Treadaway won an Olivier Award for Best Leading Actor during his tenure as Christopher in the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in 2013. (Current companion Pearl Mackie performed in the West End production two years later.)US audiences, meanwhile, may recognize him from the film adaptation of A Street Cat Named Bob—the true story of how a stray cat transformed the life of busker and recovering drug addict James Bowen.And, look closely and you might spot Treadaway in Clash of the Titans and Unbroken. He was also cast in the National Theatre’s upcoming version of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, with Imogen Poots and Imelda Staunton.Since Peter Capaldi announced his departure from Doctor Who early this year, fans have speculated about his successor—to be determined under the leadership of incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall.Treadaway isn’t the ideal candidate for those still holding out hope that the BBC will break its five-decade trend of white-dude Doctor. Headliners like Sacha Dhawan, Fleabag‘s Waller-Bridge, and Supergirl star Harewood may be a better choice.For now, you’ll just have to keep waiting—something Doctor Who fans are getting really good at.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.
The house and museum, which are both open year-round, have an interesting story. In 2004, Brian Jones bought the house on eBay for $150,000 and spent an additional $240,000 on restorations to bring it back to its original movie look. The A Christmas Story House & Museum opened on November 25, 2006, and since then, both sites receive roughly 50,000 visitors per year.
