David Tennant To Depart in 2009

By Mark
This year's National Television Awards took place last night and Doctor Who won the award for "Best Drama". David Tennant also won the award for "Outstanding Drama Performance" and accepted the award live from the stage door of Hamlet. In his acceptance speech, he announced that the 2009 specials will be his last episodes of Doctor Who and thanked everyone who voted for him. You can view David's acceptance speech which was shown live on ITV1 below;

An eleven minute interview with David Tennant where he talks about leaving Doctor Who can be viewed here. A new trailer for this year's Christmas special is also featured at the end of the interview. David Tennant will still play The Doctor in this year's Christmas special and in four hour long specials next year. Doctor Who will then return in 2010 with a full fifth series, a new Doctor and Steven Moffat as the new head writer. What do you think of this news?

    They should bring back Catherine Tate as a fulltime companion to soften the blow.

Something to say?
