Tennant quits Dr.Who... Billie Piper to play the Dr next?


After months of speculation David Tennant has confirmed that he will not reprise the role he has become so famous for for it's fifth season in 2010. Tennant will star in four special episodes during 2009 which replaces the normal series and then a new actor will take his role. Although many actors have been touted for the 11th Timelord such as Trainspotting star Robert Carlisle (the bookies current favourite), EastEnders star Tom Ellis and Paterson Joseph (who would be the first Black actor to play Dr.Who) it is now being said that Billie Piper could jump from her role as Rose straight into the Tardis itself as the first female Dr.Who (something that could have been potentially great with Catherine Tate's Doctor-Donna in season 4).

The 2010 series will also mark a new direction for the show because Russell T Davies, the man credited with reviving the classic series for modern audiences, has stepped down as its executive producer. Bafta-winning writer Steven Moffat, who created popular comedy drama Coupling, and wrote some episodes for Dr.Who previously will succeed Davies as lead writer and executive producer of the fifth series.

We'll have to wait a fair old while before the next actor is announced and 2010 seems so far away when we're not even out of 2008 yet, but David Tennant's shoes are mighty ones to fit into, let's hope we get someone worthy of our BBC screen time for 2010!
