It’s official, the man who rivaled Tom Baker in popularity as the lead role in Doctor Who is stepping down. Tennant will appear in the 2009 gap-year specials, but after that he’s out the door. Of course, the first thing fans and the media said after “ZOMG TENNANT!!11!!” was “who’ll be the next Doctor?” It’s early days yet, but Patterson Joseph (of Peep Show and “That Mitchell and Webb Look” fame) is the early favorite to pilot the TARDIS in 2010.
