11th Doctor Revealed Tonight

This is from The Sun

BBC chiefs will tonight unveil the next Doctor Who — but it won’t be a woman, TV BIZ can reveal.
Producers had thought of replacing David Tennant with a TimeLADY after he quit.

And show boss Russell T Davies even tipped Clocking Off actress Lesley Sharp for the role in the sci-fi show

But bosses decided to carry on with tradition and appoint another man.
An insider explained: “It was thought it might be a bit tricky trying to explain the sex change bit to the kids so the idea has been parked.” However, the show could still gets its first BLACK doctor - with Paterson Joseph, 44, and Colin Salmon, 46, both heavily tipped.

Or it could be Doctor HUGH as forums buzz with rumours that Hugh Grant, 48, may land the role.

Other names in the frame include Russell Tovey, Robert Carlyle, James McAvoy and Alan Davies.

Tennant hands over the keys to the Tardis at the end of this year after starring in four more one-off specials. He has been at the helm for four years since taking over from Christopher Eccleston.

The 11th Doctor will be revealed on tonight’s Doctor Who Confidential on BBC1 at 5.35pm.

Drama boss Piers Wenger said "We believe he is going to bring something very special to the role and will make it absolutely
his own.”
