New Doctor Who David Tennant has topped a list of Britain's best TV talent.

The actor, who takes over from Christopher Eccleston as the Timelord this Christmas, beat the likes of Jamie Oliver and Ant and Dec.

Tennant heads Broadcast magazine's Hot 100, chosen by a panel of industry experts.

Before he was unveiled as the new Doctor Who, the 34-year-old made his breakthrough in BBC drama Casanova.

"Landing the role of one of TV's most iconic characters has propelled Tennant into the big time," Broadcast said. "As yet we've had only the briefest glimpse of him as the Doctor, but if you missed his exuberant, charismatic, detailed performance as the eponymous hero in Casanova - where were you?"

TV chef Jamie Oliver was second in the list thanks to his campaigning series Jamie's School Dinners. Third was comic Catherine Tate, who stole the show at the Royal Variety Performance by asking the Queen: "Is one bovvered?" Veteran presenter Bill Oddie was fourth.
