"Well, I’ve heard that they’re doing it and that they want David to do it, but I think he’s slightly anxious that there’ll be big American producers on board and that they’ll try and hijack the whole thing and cast someone like Johnny Depp."
Sounds interesting! Nothing has been confirmed at the moment, but it's a nice thought! Thanks to WhovianNet for this information.

Thanks to Nebula One for this!
You returned to film some scenes for Tennant's final Doctor Who outing. How was that?
"It was weird because I didn't have a full script and I had to do it in three hours. It was after filming Secret Diary in the day and it was too short! I didn't know anything about the story. I wish I'd been there for the whole episode - but that would have been a bit tedious!"
Did you get emotional knowing David would be leaving?
"Yes, I hate it that he's left! But then I know Matt Smith really well and I love him and I think he's such a brilliant actor. The role couldn't have gone to a better guy. He's capable of that. He's got big shoes to fill, but I'm certain he can do it."
What did you think when you watched David's final episodes back?
"Do you know, I haven't seen it yet! I went away for Christmas and New Year so it would have been a bit weird trying to sly off and watch an episode of Doctor Who on my own! I definitely will though. Was it good? Did you cry?"
We cried our eyes out! Is there room for Rose to return at a later date?
"I think it's done now, isn't it? I think that ship has sailed. That old, wooden ship! I really loved doing it, but Doctor Who has moved on - it's different people, different crew, different production team and I can't keep going back. It's ridiculous! It's time to move on..."
I agree with her; it's time for new companions!

At one point the Doctor says the word ‘diabetic’.
One character is a talking otter.
There is an almost painfully beautiful gag about cheese and biscuits.
One of those isn't true.
Also, when asked if the 11th Doctor will say 'Geronimo,' Whithouse replied, "No, he doesn't say Geronimo! I had no idea that was going to be his catchphrase!"
Thanks to Will from Will and Seb for telling me about this!
They also have an interesting article about the things we learn from the new edition of The Writer's Tale. Read it here.

This tearjerker of an episode features a battle between the Daleks and the Cybermen, Jackie and Pete Tyler reuniting and that heartbreaking goodbye scene between Rose and the Doctor on Bad Wolf Bay. Talking of which, why not relive the moment right here?
It's quite sad that I know the words for this off by heart...
