The 9th Doctor on the new BBC hit series Doctor Who
has quit. Christopher Eccleston said the role was too much and has walked away from it, after only one episode aired in the UK.
For a long time, I thought it was a cruel April Fool's joke getting out early. But the BBC has confirmed it.
The good news is the ratings for the first new episode of Doctor Who
were so good it was picked up for a 2nd season. Billie Piper is set to return as the the companion, Rose.
