With rumors that major changes might be ahead following the tenth season of Doctor Who, many are starting to speculate who might be in line to play the next Doctor. According to Metro, Jenna Coleman will be departing the series after the current season, and Peter Capaldi might follow closely behind, which opens the door for a brand new lead in the series.
“Jenna’s decision to leave has shaken executives and they are now worried Peter will follow suit… While they are keen to keep him on board they are discreetly drawing up future plans for the show and throwing around a few names as potential new Doctors.”
With that in mind, the source added that Game of Thrones star Richard Madden is one of the top candidates for the role. “Richard Madden is one of the favorites,” the source stated.
