PATTERSON Joseph is being hotly tipped, so I’m told, as David Tennant’s replacement on Doctor Who.
He’s currently putting in an impressive performance on Survivors on BBC1 and has already appeared in the new Doctor Who season, when Christopher Eccleston held the keys to the Tardis.
He’d be a pretty good choice, I think. He’s proved he can do comic acting as well as serious. And the fact that he appeared in Steven Moffat’s Jekyll recently won’t harm his chances, given that Moffat (or Grand Moff, as SFX magazine call him) is now executive producer on the show.
