Davies: 'Zeta-Jones could be Doctor'

Russell T. Davies has put forward Catherine Zeta-Jones as a possible future Doctor.

The Doctor Who showrunner, who hands over the reigns to Steven Moffat for the next full series, revealed that he would like to see the Entrapment actress take on the iconic role.

"I think the more [a female Doctor] is talked about, the more likely it is to happen," he said, adding that he would cast Zeta-Jones or Lesley Sharp.

However, Davies admitted that he has no say in who gets to play the character's next incarnation after David Tennant's departure, adding: "It's a big deal to set up. Whoever becomes the Doctor has got to take on a whole life. It's a lot of soul-searching to do."

The writer will remain in charge of the show for four specials in 2009, including Tennant's final scenes. "The big climax is mine, all mine," he said.
