Has Christopher Eccleston really quit Doctor Who?
Londonist awoke to this:
Actor Christopher Eccleston has quit as Doctor Who after just one episode of the new series has been screened, the BBC has confirmed.
We are gutted at the thought of this being true, but are eyeing the date suspiciously.
A BBC spokesman said the corporation would issue a formal statement later on Thursday and that it had hoped, rather than expected, that Eccleston would continue in the role.
We'll keep you posted...
