CASANOVA star David Tennant is the new Doctor Who, the BBC confirmed last night.

He will take over from Christopher Eccleston as the 10th incarnation of the timelord.

Tennant, 33, who also starred in Blackpool, had been hotly tipped since Eccleston's shock announcement that he is quitting after just one series.

He said: "lam delighted, excited and honoured to be the tenth Doctor. I grew up loving Doctor Who and it has been a lifelong dream to get my own Tardis."

Tennant paid tribute to Eccleston, 41, describing him as a "tough act to follow". Writer Russell T Davies revealed he is already working on Tennant's first adventure as the Doctor.

Dr Who has been a massive ratings-winner for the Beeb and a new 13-part series and Christmas special will begin filming in Cardiff in the summer.
