Teen Potter too young for Tardis

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe would be too young to be a Doctor Who, claims a former timelord.

Ex-Doctor Who Peter Davison said he was against Radcliffe taking over as the man from Gallifrey.

Davison was 29 when he took over the controls of the Tardis from Tom Baker, but claims that a younger doctor barely out of his teens would belittle the TV institution.

He said: “What’s wrong with there being an older doctor? I don’t think that such a young man would be a good idea – it might end up like a children’s show.”

The latest Doctor Who David Tennant has scotched rumours that the time-travelling do-gooder would be heading to a new regeneration.

It was thought that Jekyll star James Nesbitt could become the 11th doctor.

However, it has been announced that after the next series is filmed, Tennant will take a year off to head to the stage to flex his acting muscles and tread the boards with Royal Shakespeare Company, starting off as Hamlet.
