David says Chris Chibnall was “the only choice”
David Tennant has revealed that Chris Chibnall was “the only choice” to take over the prized Doctor Who reigns from Steven Moffat.
The Tenth Doctor actor – who also stars in Chibnall’s drama Broadchurch, returning to ITV this month – told Digital Spy that the series will be “in safe hands” when the incoming showrunner’s era opens for business next year. “I think it was inevitable that Chris would get it,” he said. “It’s a massive and difficult job which needs someone who is as talented and enthusiastic as he is. It’ll go from strength to strength.”
Chris has also been given the seal of approval from another recent Doctor – Matt Smith described him as “a wonderful writer” when he was announced as Steven’s successor.
Do you agree with David? Was Chris the perfect choice to take over from Steven Moffat?
