Doctor, there's been a murder

DOCTOR Who star David Tennant is being lined up for a role in the crime drama Taggart.

The West Lothian actor, who recently quit his role as the Time Lord, had auditioned for the show 16 times without landing a part in his pre-Doctor Who days.

"I've been encouraging our producer to offer him a part as a doctor," Taggart star Colin McCredie was reported as saying.
