David Tennant Thinks The Next Star Of ‘Doctor Who’ Should Be A Woman

Could the next Doctor on Doctor Who be a woman?

While some fans are still dealing with the fact that Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who after its 10th season, some people are already talking about who will replace him.

The most interesting idea so far has come from another former Doctor from the British series, David Tennant.

According to Vulture, Tennant nominated his current Broadchurch co-star Olivia Coleman to take on the iconic role during an interview with The World of One.

“Olivia would clearly be a magnificent choice,” Tennant explained to the publication. “If you have the right people telling the right stories, then it’s absolutely a possibility.”

Coleman is a great English actress who won a Golden Globe for her role in The Night Manager recently. Plus, she’s got a great handle on British TV series through her work on Broadchurch, Peep Show and Fleabag.

It is still really early in the casting process for the BBC hit, but we are all for a woman taking the lead.

What do you think about Coleman as a choice for this epic role? Have you gotten used to the idea of Doctor Who without Capaldi yet?

Doctor Who returns for Season 10 in Spring 2017.
