Christopher Ecclestone has quit as Doctor Who after just one episode of the new show, and just as it is confirmed a second series has been commissioned.
"Actor Christopher Eccleston has quit as Doctor Who after just one episode of the new series has been screened, the BBC has confirmed.
Eccleston, whose first appearance as the ninth Time Lord attracted around 10 million viewers, feared being typecast. "
You have to ask yourself what the hell he took the role for in the first place. Surely he realised that there would be an expectation that there would be several series of the show. It hardly bodes well for the future if withon one season of the show they are already replacing the leading man.
