He received over 20 per cent of the votes in a Radio Times poll
Actor Michael Sheen would be the most popular replacement for Jodie Whitaker as Doctor Who, according to a new poll.
The Quiz star topped a RadioTimes.com poll of more than 10,000 people, receiving 20% of the votes.
RadioTimes.com editorial director Tim Glanfield said: “Doctor Who’s lead role is one of the most iconic and coveted in British television and therefore any vacancy creates a huge amount of speculation amongst fans and across the TV industry.
“Clearly Michael Sheen is a popular choice, and no one can fault his brilliant acting prowess – but with a long history of secrecy and surprises at Doctor Who HQ when it comes to casting, we might have a bit of a wait until we find out who will be flying the Tardis next.”
Actor, comedian and director Richard Ayoade came second with 15% of the vote.
Holby City’s Jo Martin was third with 11%, followed by Fleabag star Andrew Scott with 7%.
