Christopher Eccleston has been crowned the new Doctor Who.
Eccleston, perhaps best known to North American audiences as Major West in 28 DAYS LATER
, will become the ninth incarnation of the Doctor when the new DOCTOR WHO
television series begins filming later this spring. He has starred in a variety of Hollywood films including small roles in GONE IN 60 SECONDS
and THE OTHERS
, as well as many British productions including ELIZABETH
with Kate Winslet and the recent mini-series THE SECOND COMING
Russell T. Davies, the head writer and showrunner for the new WHO
, said Eccleston was his first choice for the role. "His casting raises the bar for all of us. It's going to be a magnificent, epic, entertaining journey, and I can't wait to start," Davies is quoted as saying on the BBC's website
