Robert Carlyle denies 'Doctor Who' rumours
Robert Carlyle has denied tabloid claims that he is lined up to replace David Tennant as the star of Doctor Who.

"Nobody has been in touch with me about Doctor Who, so I really don't know where that came from," the Full Monty star told the Radio Times.

However, Carlyle did admit that he could be lured into the Tardis in the future: "It's David's [Tennant] part and nothing to do with me, so I can't really think about it at the moment. But... would I do it? Possibly."

Tennant is widely expected to leave the acclaimed family show before the fifth season, due to be screened in 2010.
