Dr. Who: David Tennant on ‘Planet of the Dead’ and his final days as The Doctor…
Thinking of David Tennant leaving Dr. Who makes me want to sing I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her (his!) Face from My Fair Lady….awwww! lol…
BBC has an interview with The Doctor..
David Tennant says he got emotional while reading his final moments as the 10th Doctor Who. The Scottish actor has six weeks left of filming and with the first of four Doctor Who specials airing on BBC One on Easter Saturday, he’ll soon hand over his galactic reins to doctor number 11, Matt Smith.
What can we expect from the Dr Who Easter special, Planet Of The Dead?
It starts with Michelle Ryan in a catsuit stealing something important. Then she tries to escape on a red bus, a London red bus. But London transport being what it is, it slips through a wormhole in time and space and ends up on a planet on the other side of the universe…
…It’s quite a romp I think. It’s got some dark moments. There’s a tiny little hint at the very end that it’s all about to get a lot darker. Because obviously at the end of the year it’s the end of the line for the 10th doctor. This is kind of a romp. This is the last time the doctor gets to have fun, in a way….
On the final three specials with David, air dates:
We don’t really know yet. Number two will be in the autumn sometime and then the final two-part finale will be Christmas and New Year I would think.
Planet Of The Dead is on BBC One on Easter Saturday at 6.45pm.
On the next special, here is the latest courtesy of Den of Geek:
…During an interview with the magazine the writer of Planet of the Dead (the first of this year’s specials) said, “the Easter Special is pretty much all we’ve got until Christmas.” The second special has recently started filming with Lindsay Duncan spotted on set with David Tennant, a “robot”, some snow and Ood Sigma….
