David Tennant Talks About Leaving

David Tennant has spoken exclusively about his shocking decision to leave after the 2009 Specials. The video can be seen below, special thanks to for the video.

I was thinking last night there is a high chance David Tennant can return in the future. If Rose Tyler was ever to return (I say IF!) then David Tennant could reprise his role as the other Doctor easily because it wouldn't matter if he looks older as he can age anyway. And there is also the chance of him returning in a 2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9 etc Doctors special. Finger crossed... In site news, as you have noticed the pages are under construction and shall be returning soon! Today's Trick or Treat question is as follows: Who played the 4th Doctor? Send your answers to the usual address: You have until 12pm tomorrow and the prize is the Quick Read 'Revenge of the Judoon.' Finally, I went ot the new Doctor Who Exhibition today and so the pictures will be uploaded to the gallery soon.

David Tennant To Leave After Specials

Doctor Who was again successful at the NTA, winning Best Drama but the shocking news is that David Tennant is leaving after the 2009 specials!

He made the announcement when accepting the award for Outstanding Drama Performance and said that after the 2009 specials he would be finishing his role as the Doctor. What do you think of this? One thing's for sure, I'm incredibly upset!

National Television Awards

The biggest television ceremony takes place tonight on ITV 1: The National Television Awards 2008. As usual, Doctor Who and all involved are up for plenty of nominations. The Doctor (David Tennant) takes on his companion (Catherine Tate) as both of them are nominated in the Outstanding Drama Perfomance category. Doctor Who itself is up for Most Popular Drama.

Lets hope they win, they certainly deserve it as Doctor Who has recently brought us 4 fantastic series as well as 3 Christmas specials including the likes of Kylie Minogue! Reaching ratings of 9 million each week, there is no doubt that Doctor Who is brilliantly popular.

DarkSmith Legacy

The first two covers for the new Doctor Who books series The DarkSmith Legacy have been released and can be seen below. The books will be released on January 29th 2009 and in total there will be 10 books, each carrying on with cliffhangers and featuring Doctor No 10.


1. The Dust of Ages
The Doctor arrives just in time to lend a helping hand to a survey team of scientists drilling beneath the Moon’s surface to discover the cause of an unusual power source. The adventure continues with deadly lunar dust and a Crystal that has been lost for centuries…. Unfortunately it’s just what the Darksmiths have been looking for and they have despatched an Agent to recover it. At any cost.

2. The Graves of Mordane
Convinced that the Doctor is Varlos, the Agent demands the return of the Eternity Crystal. But what happened on Mordane to make the Crystal too dangerous to be left on the Moon? The Doctor has to convince the Agent that he is not Varlos and doesn’t know what happened on Mordane, then escape with the TARDIS and find out. The Doctor decides that the Eternity Crystal must be destroyed but before he can the Agent and the Crystal vanish. He has to find the Agent, which leaves the Doctor only one option, and he doesn’t like it…

Also as you may have noticed we have a new banner made by Zobles from TARDIS-Base. Special thanks to him!

As if he hasn't got enough to do, John Barrowman has gone and made another music video. The song, 'What About Us?' is from his brand new album called 'Music, Music Music' out on November 24th. The single is out on November 17th and I think it's quite catchy. What do you think?

Interesting Facts

On the website 'Den of Geek' lots of interesting facts about what the Series 4 Boxset commentary reveals have been posted online:

• The phrase "cache of info-stamps" is said (not revealed by whom).
• There's a character called Aubrey Fairchild, (the name of the Prime Minister in early drafts of The Stolen Earth) who meets a "terrible death".
• The Hub set, from spin-off series Torchwood, has been 'trashed' and used for filming in the special.

• David Tennant refers to Steven Moffat as his "new boss", and their discussion indicates that they are already working together.
• The Moff prefers two-parters but this will not affect how he approaches the series.
• When asked if the title sequence for series 5 will change, the incoming show-runner jokes, "Should his face be in it?"
• The written (but not filmed) 'Shadow Proclamation' scene in The Stolen Earth, featuring monsters from throughout the series, has been requested by David to appear in one of the specials.

• The production team couldn't find an actor short enough for Kaagh in The Last Sontaran so they had to make a new costume - thereby upping the cost of the episode.
• The actor who played the milkman from Journey's End is to appear in an upcoming episode.
• Catherine Tate wants a part (but not as Donna Noble), as her daughter loves the show.
• David Tennant wants to be the voice of 'Mr. Smith'.
and the biggie:
• David Tennant was to appear in the opening episode (in a sub-plot which would explain why K9 was not to appear in the show) but, at the time of recording the commentary (May 2008), this idea was binned. Julie Gardener states "it could still happen".

• On the Paul McGann TV Movie, RTD says, ".. so not what I would do, but I love it."
• Although RTD loves the Ice Warriors, he says they are "slightly generic".
• When asked if River Song is The Doctor's wife, Steven Moffat says "it's more complicated than that"
• RTD reveals that Harriet Jones died in The Stolen Earth despite Phil Collinson's protestations that she lived.

Also, below is a picture of a deleted scene from Journey's End, during which the Doctor was going to give Rose a piece of the TARDIS so that she could grow her own:

Again thanks to Planet Gallifrey and Den of Geek for literally everything in this post!
