UPDATE: There’s an update to this story. Tennant May Not Be Leaving Doctor Who Afterall
Original article follows below:
The Sun is reporting that David Tennant will be quitting his role as the Doctor on the hit BBC series, leaving those in charge looking for yet another replacement.
Tennant will reportedly leave the show during the middle of its fourth season. Possible replacements for the role include Robert Carlye (Trainspotting) and David Morrisey (Basic Instinct 2), both of whom share the Scottish background of Tennnt.
There has been no confirmation of the news, either by Tennant or those at BBC. If it does turn out to be true, it would make the third actor to be replaced on the series. The first Dr. Who (Christopher Eccleston) only lasted one season when he was replaced by Tennant and Billie Piper (who played the role of Rose Tyler: the Doctor’s sidekick) is being replaced by Freema Agyemen for the third season.
