Michael Sheen voted Doctor Who fans’ favourite to replace Jodie Whittaker as the new Doctor
The ‘Quiz’, ‘The Good Fight’ and ‘Good Omens’ star fought off strong competition.

Fans have named Michael Sheen as the actor they most want to see cast as the 14th Doctor when Jodie Whittaker leaves Doctor Who at the end of the next series with the 52 year-old star scooping up 20 per cent of the vote.

News broke recently both Jodie Whittaker and Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall would be leaving the long-running show in 2022, with a six-episode series and three special episodes set to close out their time on the show.

So that now leaves an important position to be filled, with fans busy making impassioned arguments for who they think should get the prestigious gig of being the next Doctor.

Sheen previously had a role in the sixth revived series of Doctor Who, voicing the villainous House in an episode penned by Good Omens and American Gods creator Neil Gaiman.

Fortunately, the actor did not appear on-screen so there would be no need for over-explaining, as was the case when Peter Capaldi took over (having previously starred opposite the Tenth Doctor in 2008’s The Fires of Pompeii).
