David Tennant Scores Highly In Poll For Who Sun Readers Want As The Twelfth Doctor
Readers of tabloid newspaper The Sun have voted Benedict Cumberbatch their favourite actor to take over the TARDIS and become the Twelfth Doctor if and when current Doctor Matt Smith hangs up his bow tie. Rather more surprising is the fact that David Tennant is second favourite for the role, despite playing the Tenth Doctor with just ten votes less than Benedict.
Other actors those quizzed would like to see in the role include James Corden, who has of course already starred in the show as Craig Owens, Miranda Hart and Laurence Fox.
Sean Pertwee, Rafe Spall, David Harewood, Alex Jennings and Rory Kinnear also received the seal of approval from fans.
1. Benedict Cumberbatch
2. David Tennant

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday with Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman.
