TRAINSPOTTING star Robert Carlyle is in talks to take over from David Tennant as TV time traveller DR. WHO.
Tennant is rumoured to be leaving the cult BBC TV show at the end of the current series in 2009 and speculation about his replacement is pointing to fellow Scot Carlyle.
Although Tennant has refused to confirm whether he will be quitting his role as the Time Lord, tough guy Carlyle hasn't ruled out stepping into his place.
He says, "Would I do it? Possibly."
