He will be in the xmas special and the four specials next year and then that will be the last.

So he will be leaving the same time as Davies.

I liked him as the Doctor, but I think it is always an exciting time when a new doctor comes along. It keeps the show feeling new and fresh I feel.

David Tennant quits as Doctor Who

Can we say Breaking News!!

Image

David Tennant is to stand down as Doctor Who, after becoming one of the most popular Time Lords in the history of the BBC science fiction show.

Tennant stepped into the Tardis in 2005, and will leave the role after four special episodes are broadcast next year.

Three years was "about the right time" to play the role, he told the BBC.

He made the announcement after winning the outstanding drama performance prize at the National Television Awards.

"I think it's better to go when there's a chance that people might miss you, rather than to hang around and outstay your welcome," he said.

His stint in the show had been "the most extraordinary time, it's been bewildering, life changing, very exciting", he said.

"And just so much fun, such a great show to work on.

"That's one of the reasons I think it's right to take a deep breath and bow out when it's still fun, when it's a novelty.

"I don't ever want it to feel like a job, so I want to move on when it still feels exciting and fresh and that means I'll miss it."

Could we have a bizarre twist and reinstate a really 'old' Time Lord.
The original was Susans grandfather remember.

I dare say there's some pressure to stck in someone the girlies will be gushing over, but how about a comeback for Tom baker. :D

LOL.
I'm shite at recognising/remembering faces.
If you bought a guitar off me twenty years ago, I could tell you the make model and serial number.
I thought it was Matt Damon or summat. :D

He was mentioned on BBC breakfast show this morning, along with James Nesbit (who had been previously linked) and 2 others whose names I forget.

There was also talk of moving it another direction, as David Tennant played the Doctor so well. Either a woman (Sandy Tocksvig mentioned) or someone else you wouldn't expect.

Cool! Is it a home made outfit? Any chance of a pic?

PS - I think Sandy Toksvig would be great as the new Dr Who! James Nesbit is a bit too 'everywhere' ATM, I think.

Be yourself - everyone else is already taken.
