The Ananova newswire service (often spurious with its information) features another report that just crossed the wires: "Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies is the bookies' favourite to become the new Dr Who. ... William Hill have made Alan Davies 8/1 favourite to land the role of the Doctor. Richard E Grant is second favourite followed by Sean Pertwee - whose dad, Jon, played the time lord in the 1970s. Other names in the frame include Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart and Cold Feet star James Nesbitt. And Lenny Henry is 33/1 to become the first black Dr Who in the show's 30 year history." Speculation, of course, but it's speculation about a confirmed new series so why quibble? (Thanks to Steve Freestone!)
