David Tennant Quits ‘Doctor Who’

The BBC has announced that Scottish actor Tennant will be leaving the long-running science fiction series "Doctor Who" in just over a year. Tennant has played the time and space traveling alien hero since 2005. He will appear in a Christmas special and four hour-long episodes to be aired in 2009 and early 2010. But he said Wednesday that when the series returns for a full season in 2010, "it won’t be with me."

"This show has been so special to me," Tennant said. "I don’t want to outstay my welcome."

"Doctor Who" was first broadcast in 1963 and is one of the longest-running Sci-Fi series in TV history and is one of the most popular programs on BBC. Tennant is the 10th actor to play the title character, who has the power to regenerate in a new body.

The classically trained Tennant, 37, is currently starring in Shakespeare’s "Hamlet" for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

So whats your thoughts on Tennent quiting? And who do you think should be a good the 11th Doctor?

 

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Final Season Begins January 16

“Galactica” will of course pick up from June’s dramatic cliffhanger that has kept us scratching our heads, due to the fact that the Colonial fleet and the Cylon allies finally discover Earth, only to find it a desolate nuclear wasteland.

 

The final 10 episodes will end with the ultimate finale on March 20, 2009.

Those wanting just a bit more “Battlestar” can also look forward to the previously announced “Battlestar Galactica” two-hour special next year starring Michael Trucco, Aaron Douglas and Dean Stockwell reprising their roles as Sam T. Anders, Chief Galen Tyrol and Cavil. And don’t forget that there is also a spin-off in the works called “Caprica”.
