Multiple Sources Linking Miranda Hart To Doctor Who

Several members of Bleeding Cool’s whispering cabinet have, over the last few weeks, mentioned one name again and again in relation to Doctor Who

…and that name is Miranda Hart, star creator and writer of the really rather winning BBC sitcom, Hart to Hart Miranda.

We have tried, to no avail, to get an actual confirmation that Ms. Hart will be taking part in the series. At this stage we thought it fair to report that, at the very least, her name keeps coming around.

Sent to Google by the talk, I saw some old gossip about her already having turned down a role, but the voices we’re hearing seem pretty clear that they’ve got something to talk about in the present tense.

We know that Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are leaving the show are some point in the next series, so that clears the board of Amy and Rory, and it’s very likely indeed that The Doctor will be looking for a new companion or two.

We also know that the show has reached out to James Corden about returning, though as far as we know, he may be set for just another one-off Craig episode and not anything more involved.

So… could Miranda be the next companion to bunk down on the TARDIS? We think it’s a possibilty. Or perhaps she’ll have some other role.

Ms. Hart’s “straight acting” debut will be in the BBC series Call the Midwife. Maybe that will give some idea of her suitability to the duties of Doctor companionship. Or perhaps we’ve already seen everything we need to see from her appearances in the sci-fi sitcom Hyperdrive. Here’s a taste:

Both series of Hyperdrive are available in a nice, cheap DVD set.

Little footnotey update: The Daily Mail say that Miranda has been “tipped” to become a judge on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing. This could see her appearing in two consecutive shows on Saturday evenings that Autumn.
