BBC bosses are in talks to sign actor Colin Salmon to be the first black Doctor, according to The Sun newspaper. They want the James Bond star to take over when David Tennant, 37, leaves in 2009.
Colin, 45, appeared as character Dr Moon this year — but is best known as M’s assistant in three 007 films. He was tipped to land the Bond role before it went to Daniel Craig.
A BBC source said: “He made a good impression when he appeared and bosses think the time is right to have the first black Doctor.”
