writes, The BBC is reporting that Christopher
Ecclestone has quit filming the second series of
Doctor Who
, quoting fears of being typecast and
new projects he wishes to attend to. Talks are under
way with David
, currently considered likely to be the
tenth Doctor. Billie Piper is expected to stay on as
Rose. Could the good reception and huge audience of
the new series have put Ecclestone off? Hopefully
he’ll stick around long enough to film his
regeneration, otherwise they’re going to have some
seriously knotty scriptwriting to do. And let’s hope
that the tenth Doctor lasts longer – he’s running out
of regenerations.
