The Mirror Online has been told by a show insider who the new man – or woman – to take on the job will be.
Bookies had been offering odds on Tilda Swinton and Olivia Colman to become the first female Doctor.
But the Mirror understands that the next actor to become a Time Lord is Kris Marshall.
And the new Doctor is set to join the show during the 10th series, rather than in the Christmas special.
Our source revealed: “Kris Marshall has already joined the cast and will regenerate at the end of this series, not in the Christmas special. They won’t risk a woman Doctor. They want a David Tennant type.”
Kris’s representatives have refused to comment.
