If the coil were faulty I would expect it to play up all the time, not just first thing in the morning. Get the transmission checked, particularly the fluid level.

It sounds like the bush at the end of the selector cable has broken rather than anything in the transmission itself. If it has broken it normally doesn’t cause a problem when you move from neutral to park or back again, but when you go to select drive it doesn’t pick it up until you move the lever past the ‘D’ position.
