Cold Feet star’s tipped to replace David Tennant

Actor James Nesbitt is being lined up as the man to take over as Doctor Who from David Tennant.

David, 36, is expected to quit at the end of the next series.

Insiders say James, 42, is favourite to become the latest Time Lord.

And it helps that he actor is pals with Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat.

‘Moffat has worked with James on Jekyll and the talk in BBC Drama is that he’s a shoo-in as the next Doctor,’ a source tells The Sun.
